  • New-look ‘wrap-around' design

The easy-to-use family of E Series VAIO notebook PCs from Sony expands this summer. The recently-announced VAIO E Series 14 is now joined by larger screen models of 15.5" and 17.3" to broaden your choice of HD-friendly entertainment options.

Sporting a signature ‘wrap-around' design with softly rounded corners, the VAIO E Series is ideal for families, students and anyone who wants to enjoy fuss-free multimedia computing.

The VAIO E Series 15 teams fresh, individual looks with everything you need for everyday tasks. With Intel® processors, generous storage, smooth graphics and clear, high-contrast 15.5" VAIO Display, there's all the power you need to breeze through the day.

Boasting a 17.3" VAIO Display Plus Full HD on selected models, the VAIO E Series 17 gives you extra screen space to enjoy movies on Blu-ray DiscTM (on selected models), edit photos or play games.

Need a break? There's no need to shut down or hibernate. Just close the lid and the VAIO E Series goes into an ultra-low power deep sleep, keeping your data safe for up to ten days1. When you're ready to resume, simply open the lid. Rapid Wake + Eco ensures you're up and running in moments, with all your files just as you left them.

It's easy to navigate through documents and media files with the large, button-free touchpad. Selected models also feature a backlit keyboard for comfortable typing when the lights are dim. Video chats are clearer and crisper with the built-in HD web camera powered by ‘Exmor for PC' that ensures sharper details, higher contrast and rich colours. Movies and games sound rich and natural, thanks to xLOUDTM and Clear PhaseTM technologies that boost speaker volume levels without distortion.

The new VAIOs also make a handy ‘any time' charger for your smartphone. Just plug in your phone via USB for a handy top-up - even when the computer is switched off or in sleep mode.

New VAIO E Series 15 and 17 are available in a choice of white, black or (E Series 15 only) silver colour finishes, and will be on sale from early June.

1 Battery life in Sleep mode varies depending on configuration and operating conditions, such as installed system memory size, remaining battery capacity and USB charging settings.
