VAIO Personal Computer - W Series

VAIO Personal Computer - W Series
Press Release
Hong Kong, July 7, 2009 - Sony Corporation of Hong Kong Limited today unveiled a new mini
notebook, VAIO W series, which is designed to bring a whole new mobile experience to the user.
Featuring a compact form that is easy to carry around, the VAIO W series is a perfect choice for
your second PC that allows for surfing the web, checking e-mail, and social networking, at home or
on the go.
Eye-catching, chic design
The VAIO W series comes in three vibrant colours - white, pink, and brown – on the surface,
bottom, bezel and touch pad, presenting a harmonious coordinated look. Some optional
colour-coordinated accessories, such as carrying pouches and mice, are offered to match with
your lifestyle.
Every detail of the design has been taken into consideration. Besides the rounded contours of the
sleek body, the tiny dimple texture of the palm rest makes it more comfortable for use and
fingerprint resistant. The touch pad surface of each colour version shows a fascinating geometric
pattern, including stars, circles and flowers, imparting a unique nuance for personal taste.
Comfortable viewing experience
The VAIO W series incorporates a high-resolution 1366 x 768 10.1-inch wide display that enables
comfortable viewing of web pages with side window for video chat simultaneously. It is made
possible to view more information online whether searching for a recipe in the kitchen or relaxing
on your recliner. You can check emails and surf the web for news during your daily commute, and
upload the latest images on social networking sites while waiting for friends.
Usability and enjoyment
The VAIO W series features an isolation keyboard with springy and responsive keys allowing for
comfortable typing and reducing errors. Its carefully designed touchpad and mouse keys make
the mini notebook functional and easy to control.
The VAIO Media plus, VAIO original software, allows you to access easily to your photos and
music and share these files with your family by the network function. With the two convenient
USB ports, you can easily transfer data, such as photos saved on your digital camera or music
from an MP3 player, to and from the VAIO W series. A built-in webcam and microphone lets you
video chat with family, friends and colleagues when a third-party internet service provider is also
Despite its compact size, the VAIO W series is equipped with a generous 160GB hard disc drive to
