VAIO Breaking News: New X and CW Series Notebooks Announced in NYC

by Team Sony 10/07/2009, in Categories For Records, VAIO

So if you caught my last post, Sony just unveiled a new touch-enabled all-in-one one.and nNow, in addition to that, two more new VAIO models have just been announced – the VAIO X Series and CW Series.

Everyone seems very excited about the X Series – including myself.  It’s unbelievably thin.  Jump over to our flickr page right now to check out all the photos.

To paint an even clearer picture for you, the VAIO X Series includes:

  • A super lightweight hybrid carbon-fiber chassis weighing just 1.6 lbs. (with standard battery) and a little over ½” inch thin
  • A large capacity battery with up to 14 hours of life and a standard capacity battery that offers up to 3 ½ hours  – both of which are included with each X Series.
  • Complete wireless freedom with built-in 3G Mobile Broadband, GPS, WiFi (802.11n) and A2DP Bluetooth®
  • An  11.1″ (diag.) LED backlit, widescreen display with 100% color saturation
  • A touchpad with the same multi-touch functionality associated with touch-enabled smartphones
  • A speedy and super efficient solid state drive (SSD) up to 128GB and Windows® 7 Home Premium

The new CW Series is equally as unique.  It comes in five high-gloss colors: Fiery Red, Poppy Pink, Icy White, Jet Black and Indigo Purple.  And unlike its predecessors, the palmrest of the CW has a unique gradient color that fades from light to dark.  It adds a cool effect to what is already a very popular line of VAIOs.  Again, here are just some of the features I think you’ll appreciate:

  • An optional Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor (2.20GHz) and Windows® 7 Home Premium
  • Blu-ray Disc™ optical drive (select models) and HDMI® ouput
  • A 14″ (diag.) LED backlit display and NVIDIA® GeForce® series graphics

The VAIO X Series will come in two colors, black and gold, will start at about $1,300 and is available for pre-order today online at  The VAIO CW Series starts at about $780 and will be available for sale at the end of the month.
