Setting the style
Choose from a range of bold and vibrant colours to match your VAIO to your style. The CW Series looks great in white, red, pink or blue, with its glossy finish, softer tones inside and the graded effect on the palm rest. Central to the VAIO’s appeal is its combination of sleek good looks with functional design. Take the isolation keyboard for example, which incorporates the optimum space between each key to enable the most accurate typing. The touch pad delivers additional functionality, enabling you to quickly find what you’re looking for using a variety of fingertip movements. Weighing just 2.4kg, and with slim profile and rounded corners, the CW1S1E is easy to hold and light to carry.

Appearing on the big screen
Beautiful images are assured, with the latest X-black technology.

The generous 14-inch screen means you’ll be able to watch movies just as the director intended in their original format, with 16:9 aspect ratio. It’s also large enough for you to view two web pages side-by-side, for moments when you need to multi-task.
Next generation graphics
To experience the ultimate High Definition gaming and movies you need a graphics card that will provide both precision and speed. That’s why the CW1S1E includes the cutting-edge NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 230M GPU card, with 512MB dedicated VRAM for serious 3D decoding. The card also comes with NVIDIA® PureVideo® HD technology for smooth action and sharp images using little power.
