Blu-ray packing Vaio E Series laptops on the way from Sony

Blu-ray, Laptops / Notebooks, Tech Digest news

Sony have today launched their new range of Vaio E Series laptops. With built-in Blu-ray drives and a full HD resolution on the 17 inch model, they’re looking set to be pretty awesome portable multimedia centres.

As well as the 17 inch full HD model, there will also be a 14 inch 1600×900 model available at launch. Both will have LED backlit screens, and will be available in a range of colours including white, pink, blue, green and black.

Both models will also feature three new dedicated short-cut buttons. The VAIO button lets you whizz quickly to a gallery of all your media files, while the ASSIST button lets you contact the Vaio technical support team. Perhaps best of all though is the WEB button; using this instead of the power button to boot up bypasses the desktop and sends you straight to your browser instead.

In terms of specs, along with the Blu-ray drives the Vaio E Series laptops pack in 500GB hard-drives, 4GB of DDR3 memory and three USB ports and a high-speed eSATA/USB port .

Keep an eye out for these in May, when they are expected to hit shelves nationwide.

Check out the VAIO E Series laptops in the gallery below.
