Sony E Series 14P laptops boasts of gesture-based controls
It seems that gesture-based controls which were made famous by the Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Kinect has now spilled over (in some way, so to speak) to the world of laptops, as Sony’s latest E Series 14P laptops that will hit Europe will also boast Sony’s very own Gesture Control feature, letting you swipe your finger between pages as well as adjust your music accordingly. Of course, right now, these gesture-based controls will play nice only with Windows Media Player, Internet Explorer 9, PowerDVD and PowerPoint, although who are we to rule out future compatibility settings? No idea on how much the Sony VAIO E Series 14P laptops will cost, but that ought to be fixed in due time.
About the specifications, the E Series 14P laptops will feature a 14″ display at 1366 x 768 resolution, running on an Intel Core i3 2550M processor, accompanied by 4GB RAM and a choice between the AMD Radeon HD 7670M or Intel HD Graphics 3000. Regardless of the model, you should be able to eke out around 7 hours of battery life from them. The inclusion of the new Rapid Wake + Eco will allow you to get in on the action within moments. This particular energy-saving mode will send the VAIO into an ultra-low power deep sleep (like the Odin-sleep in the Thor comics from Marvel?), ensuring your data is retained for up to 10 days. When you decide to have it awake from its slumber by opening its lid, it will take mere seconds to get you up and running.
Not only that, organizing, editing and sharing your media collection has been made all the easier with the VAIO E Series. PlayMemories Home by Sony is thrown into the mix for free, letting you add effortless polish to your photos and video clips in a jiffy.
The new VAIO E Series 14P will come in a choice of white, black or pink shades, although other colors and configurable options are available at Sony Store Online. Gotta love what they are offering for sure!
