Sony Delivers New Blu-Ray Notebok


Sony today unveiled a portable multimedia PC with Blu-ray Disc technology that packs power and entertainment into a compact package.

Part of a series, the new VAIO FZ notebook comes in multiple configurations, including a premium and standard model. The premium version plays Blu-ray Disc high-definition content in full 1080 HD resolution, as well as record and play back personal content on BD media.



The FZ notebook has a 15.4-inch widescreen display and its weight is less than six pounds. Sony?s patented XBRITE-HiColor technology (on the premium model) promises to produce sharp details and crisp colors.

The FZ premium model also has an HDMI connector so you can connect to a high-definition television.

"With the premium model, we are bringing the power of Blu-ray to a portable PC at an unprecedented price of about $2,000," said Mike Abary, senior vice president of VAIO product marketing at Sony Electronics.

The new PC incorporates an Intel Centrino Duo processor technology and built-in 802.11n wireless LAN technology for high-speed, wireless computing with greater range and reliability than ever before. A compatible 802.11n access point is required. The model comes pre-installed with the Windows Vista Home Premium operating system.

The FZ notebook includes a set of dedicated multimedia controls just above the keyboard. With the push of a button you can go straight to your CDs, pictures -- even watch movies -- without ever booting up the operating system (on the standard model). Surround sound is powered by Sony?s Sound Reality technology.

The new model also comes loaded with LocationFree software so you can "place-shift" live TV, access your personal video recorder or DVD player, and view that content on your notebook via the Internet (base station and broadband connectivity required).

The FZ notebook supports ExpressCard, letting you port data at incredible speeds. The unit also includes S-video and also supports all versions of Memory Stick? Flash media.

The FZ standard model will start at about $1,400, while the FZ premium Blu-ray Disc model will go for around $2,000. Availability in the U.S . will start in mid-May.
