Texture Bringing Exceptional Design for Everyday Use
Dubai-UAE: 31 July, 2011 – Sony, the leading consumer electronics brand, today announced
the Middle East launch of the new VAIO E Series, a range of notebooks that blend exceptional
design with optimal performance for everyday use.
The all-new VAIO E Series is equipped with second generation Intel® Core™ i5 Processor and
AMD Dual-Core Processor. The enhanced processing ability of the Intel Core processor and
power efficiency of the AMD Dual-Core processor enable sharp and clear videos, realistic and
responsive games, and allow the notebooks to run longer between battery charges.
Sony also takes cutting-edge styling to new extremes through the VAIO E Series. The surface
of the notebooks features a truss pattern where several small triangles construct one large
hexagon. The texture covers the exterior as well as the palm rest. Ergonomically designed for
ease of use, fingerprints and smudges are less noticeable due to the three-dimensional pattern.
The screen size of the VAIO E Series ranges from 14-inch to 15.5-inch.
