Sony revealed four new VAIO Notebook lines including the world's first 16.4 inch wide multimedia notebook VAIO FW series.

The Sony VAIO FW notebook comes in multiple configurations, including a premium and a standard model. The premium model plays Blu-ray Disc high-definition content like movies in full 1080 HD resolution when connected to a compatible HDTV. It can also record, store and play back personal content on high-capacity BD media.
Weighing a little over six pounds, the FW notebook features the world’s first 16.4-inch display, which combines the benefits of a slightly larger17-inch widescreen with the smaller “footprint” of a 15.4-inch model.
The display is ideal for Blu-ray Disc movies. Since many HD films are shot with a 16:9 aspect ratio, the unit’s extra-wide LCD is constructed with the same dimensions. This minimizes the black bars that typically appear, letting you view movies in their intended format.
For those who prefer to watch content on a big screen television, the unit also has an HDMI output connector so you can connect to a high-definition TV set for a larger viewing experience.

The FW series comes with VAIO Media software, a DLNA-enabled media sharing application that lets you wirelessly stream content stored on your PC throughout your home network. Movies, music and digital still images can be streamed from the notebook to a PS3 or VAIO Home Theater PC that is connected to a TV for big-screen enjoyment.

The VAIO FW series include VGN-FW160EH the VGN-FW145EW, VGN-FW140NW, VGN-FW140EW, VGN-FW140EH, VGN-FW180EH, VGN-FW198UH, VGN-FW139NW, VGN-FW170JH, VGN-FW130EW, VGN-FW130NW, and VGN-FW139EH models.
Available in titanium gray and powder white, the FW standard model starts at about $1,000, while the FW premium will go for around $1,750. The VAIO FW series will be available online on Sony Style.
