VAIO FE-Series: Seeing Is Believing
The entertainment notebook with an edge
The FE-Series is what home users have been waiting for. Portable and powerful, it’s a high-tech showcase designed from the ground up to exceed expectations. Key features include a dual-core processor, powerhouse graphics and a new generation of screen delivering unprecedented colour fidelity and brightness. Its stylish finish is as distinctive as it is appealing, constructed from magnesium alloy for strength, lightness and sheer quality feel.
No matter what you are doing with the FE, the quality of its screen will quickly make itself felt. The 15.4-inch widescreen format and high WXGA resolution are ideal for watching films and make for a roomy Desktop too. Double lamp illumination means exceptional brightness within the latest generation X-black LCD™, creating lifelike contrast between true blacks and vibrant colours. When it comes to colour fidelity, the new screen is in a class of its own, making it the perfect choice for viewing and editing photos.
For the first time on the market and at the heart of every model in the range, there’s the latest in Intel technology, an Intel® Core™ processor and new Intel PM945 chipset, selected for their unbeatable mix of power and potential. With dual-core processors set to make a big impact on everything from gaming to video editing, the FE-Series is born future-proofed.
Gamers will be equally interested in the muscular presence of the new PCI Express® based NVIDIA® GeForce™ Go 7400 graphics engine, capable of delivering fluid 3D action and impressively realistic visual effects.
When it comes to the real world, a built-in camera1, headset and microphone let you use the FE as a full-spectrum communications centre. This Skype-enabled laptop allows for video chat and videoconferencing and the added Bluetooth 2.02 function ensures a connection to your Bluetooth headset, telephone and other Bluetooth enabled devices.
The strong entertainment feel to the FE-Series is reflected in the choice of Windows® Media Center Edition for the operating system rather than XP Home. Every FE-Series model also comes with the most comprehensive VAIO software package to date. This combines Sony AV-IT applications and Microsoft® Works with the latest Adobe products including Photoshop® Elements 4.0 software, Premiere® Elements 2.0 software and Acrobat® Elements 7.
As a result of this new software package, picture, music and especially video libraries can get quite large, which is why the standard hard disk size for the
FE-series is a full 100GB. For the more ambitious, the VGN-FE11S has a massive 160GB.
“The FE-Series gives home users a realistic opportunity to get everything they want,” says Jun Koyama, Director of IT for VAIO Europe. “There is no compromise on quality, performance or features. As with any VAIO, this is a notebook we simply want people to be proud to own.”
