Sony has launched three VAIO notebook computers aimed at business users. The line-up comprises VAIO SR-Series, a 2Kg 15.4 inch model, which gives 5 hours' battery life the VAIO BZ is an A4-format and the VAIO Z-Series is a 1.5kg notebook which has a carbon fibre case.
The SR-Series uses Intel's Core 2 Duo processors. It is configured with 4GB of high-speed system memory and a 13.3" WXGA+ (1280 x 800) screen, which Sony says offers both low power consumption LED illumination and its X-black LCD display enhancement.
Sony has also developed a "Switch" function, which lets users change the personality of the notebook at the touch of a button, so it can be switched between a customised personal desktop and a professional look and feel.
The VAIO BZ-Series BZ11VN uses Intel's Centrino platform with vPro technology, which, Sony said, offers users built-in remote manageability and enhanced security. This notebook includes fingerprint recognition technology and supports Trusted Platform Module hardware protection, which stops access to data if the laptop is stolen or left on a train.
The VAIO Z-Series offers Sony's "everywair" Wireless Wide Area Network technology, which provides mobile workers with up to 7.2Mbps on 3G phone networks.See Cliff saran's blog post on the new Sony Vaio range for business>>
