Sony’s new VAIO E Series looks to appeal to the younger, creative crowd, as a multimedia-friendly laptop with a student-friendly price.
The E Series comes in 11”, 14” and 15.5” models, as well as a 14” Premium model. All except the 14” model will feature 3rd generation Intel Core processors and up to 8 GB of DDR3 memory. Rapid Wake technology, combined with an LED backlit keyboard, makes it simple and easy to start up and use the notebook day or night. The E Series features a multi-gesture touchpad, three USB 2.0 ports, and one USB 3.0 port. The 14” Premium edition will feature two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports. The option for a solid state drive is also exclusive to the 14” Premium edition.
Audio will be a big selling point for the VAIO E Series, thanks to Clear Phase technology, which keeps the audio crisp and clear. xLoud technology does what you would expect it to do – play your music very loudly, but without sacrificing quality. Dolby Home Theater v4 technology brings the benefits of high-quality audio to watching videos on the laptop.
The E Series isn’t meant for just consumption, though. Creativity is encouraged with Sound Forge Studio, which musicians can use to record their own original music, or mash up other tracks. Video editing software is available as well, as part of the Sony Imagination Studio VAIO Edition suite of software.
That finally brings us to the VAIO E 14P
