Sony today released red editions of its VAIO Duo, Pro and Fit laptops in limited quantities. Sony says VAIO | red edition is the ultimate expression of Sony craftsmanship. The signature red finish is achieved by a variety of painting techniques on different materials, including carbon fiber and aluminum. Multiple paint layers are individually applied and hand-polished, building layer upon layer of lustrous color. To give it that extra glossy finish, a durable protective UV coating creates an extra vibrant sheen with gorgeous depth and richness.
In addition to premium luxury design, the VAIO | red edition of the Duo, Pro and Fit models are fused with the power of Sony’s display technologies, exceptional camera quality and audio technology.
The VAIO | red edition models deliver super charged performance with Intel Core i7 fourth generation processors. The sophisticated VAIO Pro 13, the world’s lightest 13.3” touch Ultrabook, is also the first notebook PC on the market to include a high speed PCIe SSD drive, allowing for faster performance than traditional SSD drives. The VAIO Fit 15 (pictured below) offers a hybrid hard drive and an optical drive that reads and writes Blu-ray Disc media.
VAIO Duo, Pro and Fit models also include standard Sony features such as a full-size backlit and full-pitch keyboard, track pad and instant PC resume technology.
With NFC (Near Field Communication technology) included across the VAIO Duo, Pro and Fit lines, users can quickly exchange website URLs and enable Bluetooth connections by simply tapping a compatible NFC device to the PCs.
In addition, the PCs feature ArtRage Studio (VAIO Duo includes ArtRage Studio Pro), the premiere digital arts software. And for those that want to try their hand at video creation, all models include VAIO Movie Creator.
All models are also touch-enabled and unlock the full potential of Windows 8.
