Combining sizzling performance with a sophisticated design, Sony today introduced a new line of ultra-portable PCs the VAIO(R) SR Series notebook.
Constructed of lightweight, durable magnesium alloy, the SR notebooks are available in five striking colors night black, sunset pink, glossy pink, classic silver and glossy silver.
“This notebook is a dream come true for the consumer who won’t compromise profound processing power for jaw-dropping style,” said Mike Abary, senior vice president of VAIO product marketing for Sony Electronics. “It meets the needs of everyday work and play while delivering the freedom, performance and style consumers crave.”
Weighing just over four pounds, the SR notebook boasts a 13.3-inch LED backlit widescreen display and Sony’s patented XBRITE-ECO(TM) 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(R) Centrino(R) 2 technology, the chipset designed for lighting-fast performance, instant system responsiveness and energy efficiency.
Select models come pre-installed with the Windows Vista(R) Home Premium operating system. A Windows(R) XP Professional downgrade is also available.
