Sony Introduce Carbon Fibre VAIO Notebook

30 September 2005

Sony of Canada earlier this week unveiled its new VAIO TX-Series notebook personal computer, built in a carbon fibre casing and weighing under three pounds.

The carbon fibre chassis of the Sony VAIO TX-Series notebook PC line, which at 2.8-pounds and less than 1-inch thin provides lightweight durability, and what the company call “head-turning elegance”.

""Sony pioneered the exploration of ultra-light materials such as magnesium and carbon for PC casings and ultra-slim components to create notebooks that are a joy to carry and add value to your life,"" said Puneet Jain, Senior Marketing Manager, VAIO Personal Computers, Consumer Audio Visual/Information Technology Group, Sony of Canada Ltd.

The Vaio TX has 4 to 7.5 hours battery life which will ensure users have enough power for a full day's work. The pc also features an advanced DVD+R double layer/DVD+RW drive and Sony's Instant Mode allow users to watch movies, listen to music or view photos with the touch of a button, without having to boot the machine.

The 11.1-inch WXGA widescreen display with XBRITE LCD technology delivers brilliant colours for improved multimedia playback, while Dolby Headphone and Virtual Speaker technologies provide surround sound when they're wearing headphones.

The VAIO TX-Series notebook PC will be available in October at a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $2,899.99.
