SAN DIEGO, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony today took the wraps off a new line of sleek, powerful, lightweight PCs -- the VAIO(R) Z Series notebooks.
Weighing just over 3 pounds, the VAIO Z model incorporates a vivid 13.1-inch widescreen display with Sony's own XBRITE-DuraView(TM) LCD technology for scratch-resistant durability and 100 percent color saturation.
Select models feature a high-resolution 1600 X 900 widescreen display, providing a 40 percent wider workspace than a standard display within the same "footprint" -- so the view increases while the notebook's size does not. This makes it easier to view multiple documents or lengthy spreadsheets on a single screen.
A seamless sheet of brushed aluminum adorns the keyboard panel elegantly framing its individual keys. The spacing between the keys is precisely engineered to create a comfortable typing experience while helping to prevent mistakes.
"Today's mobile professional demands not only portability from a notebook but that it meets their productivity needs as well," said Mike Abary, senior vice president of VAIO product marketing at Sony Electronics. "This new model is an amazing engineering feat packing the full functionality of a larger PC into an ultra-light form factor."
The unit is housed in a durable carbon-fiber casing to help endure the knocks, bumps and accidents common to frequent travel. It also incorporates G-Sensor(TM) Shock Protection technology to counteract sudden movements helping to prevent damage and data loss.
It is powered by new Intel(R) Centrino(R) 2 technology, the chipset designed for sizzling performance, unbelievable system responsiveness, and energy efficiency.
Road warriors will love its built-in 802.11n wireless LAN capabilities
making it faster and easier to connect to compatible wireless networks with
greater performance and range than ever before. For blazing-fast wireless
access beyond networks and hotspots, the unit feature
