Sony Brings New Vaio 3D Laptops Ahead Of Macbook Pro Launch

Sony has refreshed its range of Vaio laptops, announcing new L, C, S and F-series models with the majority of them hitting the market by the end of the week.

They will be equipped either with an Intel i5 or an Intel i7 processor and will all come with Windows 7 64-bit as system OS.

The F-Series, which is expected to cost around £800 for the base unit, is the first 3D laptop from the company and will use technology from Sony's critically acclaimed Bravia 3D TV range.

Unfortunately, users will need to wear special 3D active glasses in order to see the 3D pictures which will be displayed on a 16-inch LED backlit screen with advanced frame sequential panel technology.

The FSP technology allows full HD 2-megapixel frames to be displayed to the right and left eyes respectively at 240Hz (basically 120 frames per eye per second).

Of the five models on offer, the VPCF21Z1E/BI is the most powerful and the most expensive; it packs a quad core Intel i7 processor with 8GB RAM, a 640GB hard disk drive, a Blu-ray Writer, a full HD 16-inch screen powered by an Nvidia Geforce GT 540M GPU with 1GB RAM, GbE, Wi-Fi, Dolby Home Theater, Webcam and more.
