Sony releases VAIO SR Series
Sony’s VAIO SR Series notebooks have just been launched and these are definitely objects of beauty considering that they come in a lightweight, durable magnesium alloy that are durable, available in five striking colors to choose from – night black, sunset pink, glossy pink, classic silver and glossy silver. According to Mike Abary, senior vice president of VAIO product marketing for Sony Electronics, “This notebook is a dream come true for the consumer who won’t compromise profound processing power for jaw-dropping style. It meets the needs of everyday work and play while delivering the freedom, performance and style consumers crave.” More on this notebook after the jump.
Weighing just over four pounds, the SR notebook boasts a 13.3-inch LED backlit widescreen display and Sony’s patented XBRITE-ECO LCD technology for clear, crisp images that truly “pop” off the screen. Equipped with a uniquely designed keyboard, the unit’s individual keys are slightly raised, producing a user-friendly touch and improved typing experience. The notebook is powered by new Intel Centrino 2 technology, the chipset designed for lighting-fast performance, instant system responsiveness and energy efficiency. Select models come pre-installed with the Windows Vista Home Premium operating system. A Windows XP Professional downgrade is also available. With the SR notebook’s integrated 802.11n LAN technology you can wirelessly surf the web and check email with greater range and reliability than ever before when connected to a compatible hotspot. And connecting with friends and family has never been easier thanks to the unit’s optional built-in webcam and microphone. The notebook also incorporates G-Sensor Shock Protection technology to counteract sudden movements helping to prevent damage and data loss.
If you’re interested, you will be able to pick up any of the Sony VAIO SR Series notebooks from the end of this month onwards, with prices starting from $1,400 upwards.
