16-inch Multimedia / Gaming Laptop with new TransferJet Technology
Sony just announced the VAIO F Series multi-media, entertainment notebook featuring a 16.4-inch (diagonal) screen. It incorporates an optional Blu-ray Disc optical drive so it can play high-definition content like movies in Full 1080 HD resolution as well as record, store and playback personal content on high-capacity BD media (select models).
Its display is ideal for watching Blu-ray Disc movies. Since many HD films are shot with a 16:9 aspect ratio, the unit’s extra-wide LCD is constructed with the same dimensions. This minimizes the black bars that typically appear, letting you view movies in their intended format.
For those who prefer to watch content on a big screen television, it also has an HDMI output connector so you can connect to a high-definition TV set for a larger viewing experience.
An NVIDIA GeForce dedicated graphics card provides high-definition graphics processing for intense gaming action without placing huge demands on the unit’s CPU.
Launch directly into Sony’s own Media Gallery software by pushing the designated VAIO button on the keyboard and create high-quality home movies. Import your photos and video, choose a theme and soundtrack, click finish and the software does the rest, generating a professional-looking movie complete with special effects.
The PC incorporates Sony’s own Transfer Jet technology (select models) enabling you to wirelessly transfer digital photos from select digital cameras–quickly and easily. Simply place your camera on the palm rest and your digital images transfer automatically. A Transfer Jet enabled digital camera and Memory Stick are required.
It packs an Intel Core i7 Processor with 4 cores and supports Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost technologies delivering the performance needed for multitasking.
It comes equipped with an assist button that links directly to VAIO Care software to help maintain and troubleshoot any issues. Plus it incorporates backlit keyboards for typing in dark situations.
