Sony announced the new "Super Notebook" VAIO AW series featuring an 18.4-inch screen with Full HD resolution and 3LED backlighting system.
3LED backlighting is a technical breakthrough found on high-end BRAVIA™ LCD TVs. It uses the pure red, green and blue light emitted by LEDs to generate a super-wide colour gamut capable of correctly reproducing the full Adobe RGB colour space. Whether you are editing photographic images or HD video, or simply enjoying an HD movie, this means the best possible picture quality.
The full HD display offers true 16:9 widescreen, so when you play a movie on the integrated Blu-ray Disc drive, you are treated to superbly cinematic visuals.
Dolby Home Theatre audio signal processing and 2.1 channel speakers complete the mini-cinema effect, with enhanced bass from the integrated sub-woofer as well as immersive surround sound. Should you prefer, an HDMI output lets you the whole High Definition audiovisual experience to an HD TV or Home Theatre.
The Sony VGN-AW11XU/Q is powered by the Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 processor and NVIDIA 512MB GeForce 9600M GT graphic card. In a world first, 128GB of Solid State Disk (SSD) Flash memory works together in a RAID array with the 500GB SATA drive to boost performance when working with large files, which are stored on the SSD for extremely fast access.
The Sony AW-Series comes with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom as well as Adobe Photoshop Elements.
No pricing has been announced. Via this Sony announcement.
