Press Release: Sony’s Thinnest and Lightest VAIO takes Performance and Design to the Extreme

Sony’s new VAIO X Series features extremely thin and light chassis, long-lasting battery life, and smooth performance

(Singapore, 8 October 2009) – Revolutionizing the mobile PC category once more, Sony Singapore unveiled the VAIO X Series today. Featuring an unbelievably light and thin chassis, long-lasting battery life, together with wireless connection and reliability, it is the definitive notebook for business professionals on the go.

Extreme design

Weighing a mere 655 grams*, the VAIO X Series is the lightest VAIO notebook designed among notebook PCs with screen size of 10″ or above**. Approximately the width of a mobile phone measuring just 13.9mm from all angles, the VAIO is made to be breathtakingly thin, maximizing user comfort when it is being carried around.

On top of that, users who enjoy working on the notebook an entire day without recharging will be pleased with the introduction of the VAIO X Series’ 8-cell battery option, which allows the notebook to last up to 16 hours of consecutive usage.

Agility on the go

Boasting true mobility with the latest wireless connection, VAIO X Series is the brand’s first 3G notebook model, equipped with WWAN*** for users to stay connected to high-speed Internet while on the go. Enhancing user experience, the VAIO features high quality 11.1″-wide, 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, LED-backlit display, comfortable typing 17mm pitch isolation keyboard, and convenient multi-finger gesture touch pad for easy flick and zoom navigation. Furthermore, various interface such as VGA and LAN port and built-in webcam are integrated to increase usability in various business contexts.

Combining the latest Intel Atom Processor Z550(2GHZ), solid state drive, and Windows 7 OS, the VAIO X provides exceptional performance for business users on the go.

Defined quality

Built to last, years of advanced technology research and development underscore the superb reliability of the new VAIO. The groove running along the outer edge of the VAIO X’s LCD and palmrest also known as the Rigid Arc structure, is not just a design element but a carefully structured detail to minimize distortion from external pressures. In addition, the housing of the AIO is made out of carbon, and the palmrest is moulded out of a one-piece aluminum plate to further increase the notebook’s toughness. Through intensive durability tests such as the 150 kgf pressure-vibration test, the VAIO is thoroughly tested for quality assurance and ready to perform in active real-life situations.

Available in limited edition Gold and Black colours, the VAIO X will be the perfect complement to stylish, connected individuals. Placing emphasis on the premium branding, a new rose gold VAIO logo is exclusively imprinted onto the limited edition Gold version.

Finishing the luxurious touch are optional accessories for the VAIO X Series that include a plush, genuine leather case and a stylish new wireless mouse in black.

The VAIO X Series will be available in Singapore from end October 2009.
