THE ORIGIN AND PHILOSOPHY OF VAIO                                                                                                   ENTRY-LEVEL

Sony introduced the VAIO in September 1996 and with it created a whole new lifestyle.
                                                                                              ENTRY-LEVEL
The VAIO name itself perfectly reflects the flair and imagination which Sony has bought         Notebooks suitable for people who require it for basic every-day applications such
to the computer world. Initially meaning “Video Audio Input Output”, as Sony’s product        as e-mails and surfing the Internet
line has evolved into a family of digital appliances that function together, it has come to
also mean “Video Audio Integrated Operation”.                                                 DESKTOP REPLACEMENT

Even the design of the VAIO logo has a deep symbolism: the continuous wavy line
which makes up the ‘V’ and ‘A’ looks like an analogue sine wave, while the ‘I’ and ‘O’        PERFORMANCE
resemble the numbers one and zero on which computer binary language is based.                 Designed for people who demand top-notch computing power and features from

         place on any desktop. But since it’s a notebook, its stage is anywhere you place it – you write the scenario. Its
         large LCD screen provides a high quality picture whether you’re watching a DVD or HD (High Definition) content,
         retouching a photo, or editing an HD or SD (Standard Definition) video. Its audio and acoustic technologies offer
         great sound to accompany the picture. And with abundant interfaces including IEEE 802.11a/b/g and Bluetooth®,
         as well as future-ready HDMI output, it easily finds its home in a variety of networked environments.




         AV entertainment
         In addition to the visual power of HD images, VAIO AR series gives you a total audio visual experience.
         Sony’s Sound Reality audio chip delivers noise reduction akin to high performance audio products (S/N ratio:
         107dB), and because the built-in bass-reflex type Rich Sound Speakers are pointed forward instead of
         upward, great sound is delivered directly to the listener. Dolby® Digital Live support allows integration into 5.1ch
         surround systems.




         Advanced design
         With a minimum thickness of 33.5mm, every surface and every curve of its sleek body makes VAIO ergonomically
         stylish, stress-free to work with, and a pleasure to look at. The light and sturdy magnesium alloy used in the
         chassis is the same type that is used in aerospace by virtue of its durability and resistance to electromagnetic
         interference, and the Premium Black (AR28GP) or Cosmo Black (AR25GP) exterior matches nicely with just about
         any interior décor.




         Blu-ray Disc & Full HD (AR28GP)
                      VAIO VGN-AR28GP has a built-in Blu-ray Disc Drive that allows you to unleash your creativity
                      in the form of HD (High Definition) content. It comes with all the software you need to edit and
         burn HD content onto Blu-ray disc so you can get started right away. And its 17” wide Clear Bright High
         Colour LCD gives you a detailed picture that does justice to HD images, with 72% colour reproduction for
         incredible realism.




         DVD Creation (AR25GP)
         Now you can maximise DVD’s potential as a personal and business communication tool. VAIO AR series offers
         professional grade DVD editing capabilities with its i.LINK digital interface and supplied Adobe® Premiere®

series   VGN-TX47GP B/W/T & VGN-TX46GP/W

         A stylish mobile notebook PC with slim dimensions and attractive Platinum White (also available in Sapphire Black
         or Metallic Copper for TX47GP) casing, the VAIO TX series is every bit as attractive as it is powerful. Impressive
         Intel® Centrino® Mobile Technology and built-in wireless capabilities deliver the business performance you need on
         the move, and a range of design details add further convenient elegance. Leading security features help secure
         your data in the office and on the move. Innovative functions make for smoother, simpler AV enjoyment and DVD
         creation, and a surprisingly light weight makes it great for carrying virtually anywhere. A mobile notebook PC with
         style and performance – that’s the VAIO TX series.

         Sophisticated style you’ll want to carry everywhere
         Ultraportable and exceptionally attractive, the VAIO TX series exudes innovation. Minimal weight and appealing
         dimensions are achieved with advanced carbon materials, and the display cabinet is made especially slim through
         the use of white LEDs. A unique “gravity-joint” design confers a confident sense of balance between screen and
         keyboard, and attractive carbon fibre casing provides protective elegance. Packing the style and the power to
         complement the way you live, it’s a mobile achievement you’ll want to carry everywhere.

         Powerful mobility
         The VAIO TX series gives you powerful performance on the move. Its standard VGP-BPS5A battery delivers up
         to 9.5 hours* (TX47GP) or 10 hours* (TX46GP) of productivity, or up to an impressive 15.5 hours* (TX47GP) or 16
         hours* (TX46GP) with the optional VGP-BPL5A battery. Proven performance is underscored by Intel® Centrino®
         Mobile Technology comprising an Intel® Core™ Solo Processor U1400 1.20 GHz (TX47GP) or U1300 1.06 GHz
         (TX46GP), an Intel® 945GMS Express Chipset and Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection. Wireless
         LAN a/b/g capability is built-in as standard, and Bluetooth® headset support adds versatile communicative capability.
         *Estimated battery life under JEITA Battery Run Time Measurement Method (ver.1.0) when the power-saving mode is on. Actual battery life may vary with
          different operating conditions and settings.



         Security for assured mobility
         The VAIO TX series has many security features to prevent unauthorised access and ensure your mobile PC
         lifestyle. Hard Disk Password protects sensitive HDD data for one level of security. The biometric fingerprint
         sensor allows for another, with easy yet unmistakable ID recognition, circumventing the need for passwords.
         Further data protection for the VAIO TX series comes from secure encryption and decryption of files and folders
         via the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) security chip and bundled software utility.

         An excellent 11.1” wide AV experience
         Despite its surprisingly slim profile, the VAIO TX series is big on entertainment. Employing white LEDs for the
         backlight, the 11.1” wide LCD (16:9 / WXGA: 1366 × 768) delivers DVD viewing performance beyond its
         weight and dimensions. Instant AV Mode can be activated at the press of a button, so you can enjoy CDs,
         DVDs and photos in Memory Sticks and SD cards without waiting to boot up. Handy control buttons make
         for easy playback, and VAIO Zone optimizes DVD and other AV content through a single, easy-to-operate
         interface. Furthermore, the SonicStage Mastering Studio Audio Filter enables excellent audio production through
         recommended headphones, (MDR-Q22LP/S02, one of the recommended headphones, is supplied). DVD±RW/
         +R DL/RAM writing capability adds to options for creative output. Impressive, entertaining, inspiring – that’s the
         VAIO TX series.

series   VGN-FE38GP & VGN-FE35GP

         The VAIO FE series is a clear lifestyle advancement. Created with appealing colour and distinctly elegant design,
         it brings sophisticated technology to the home while complementing interior style. Despite surprisingly slim
         dimensions, it packs the powerful new Intel® Core™2 Duo processor for more impressive performance. And with the
         outstanding brightness of an ample 15.4” wide Clear Bright High Colour LCD, it puts other notebook LCDs in the
         shade. This advanced LCD also delivers strikingly vivid colour reproduction, producing 72% of the colour range of
         conventional LCD televisions, compared with 40 to 50% for most notebook LCDs. Want to take family enjoyment a
         stylish step ahead? Look to the high-performance VAIO FE series from Sony.




         Prominent performance
         The VAIO FE series not only offers a distinct display advantage, it also provides ample performance.
         Incorporating an Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T7200 2.00 GHz (FE38GP) or T5600 1.83 GHz (FE35GP),
         operation stays smooth even when numerous applications are open, while an Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
         Network Connection helps keep you in touch with family and friends. 1GB (FE38GP) or 512MB (FE35GP) of
         DDR2 SDRAM (533MHz) main memory pushes potential further, and wide ranging compatibility starts with slots
         for both Memory Stick Duo and ExpressCard™/34 – with a supplied adapter that adds access to a variety of
         memory media. There’s even an optional docking station (VGP-PRFE1) that not only makes it easy to connect to
         and disconnect from a set of peripherals in one action but also enables insertion of a HDD (VGP-HDBX08A) to
         increase storage capacity.

         Expressive enjoyment
         Superior home entertainment begins with a 15.4˝ wide Clear Bright High Colour LCD that delivers exceptional
         brightness and truly remarkable colour reproduction. While most notebook LCDs can only reproduce 40 to 50%
         of the colour range of conventional LCD televisions, VAIO FE series can reproduce a remarkable 72%. Moreover,
         the leading-edge NVIDIA® GeForce® Go 7600 graphics processing unit significantly boosts your viewing pleasure.
         Featuring VAIO Zone, the VAIO FE series provides smooth, simple access to broad entertainment. And whenever
         the whole family wants to watch together, the S-Video Out connector makes it easy to output display to a TV
         anytime. Because the VAIO FE series comes with a built-in camera MOTION EYE and a built-in microphone, you
         can video chat as soon as you switch on. And as the VAIO FE series offers Bluetooth® capability too, you can
         enjoy smooth voice communication with Bluetooth® compatible headsets. Whatever you choose to do, the VAIO
         FE series makes a clear difference.

         Quality creativity
         Add further quality to creative enjoyment. Incorporating Sony’s Sound Reality audio chip, the VAIO FE series
         takes sound performance to a superior level with noise reduction akin to high performance audio products.
         And featuring DSD format compatibility, the VAIO FE series enables exceptional playback fidelity. There’s
         also the advantage of the SonicStage Mastering Studio Audio Filter with four exclusive headphone presets
         created by professional studio engineers – so you and all the family can get the utmost satisfaction from
         Sony recommended headphones. Refined enjoyment also extends to DVD creation – with a DVD±RW/±R
         DL/RAM Drive, plus Click to DVD software that makes it easy to produce a masterpiece out of your own
         precious memories.

series   VGN-UX17GP

         VAIO UX series is the multimedia companion and full-fledged
         computer that’s always by your side, ready for action in every way
         you want. Log-in quickly with Fingerprint Recognition, and you’re
         ready to roll – surf the Net or video chat if you’re in a HotSpot,
         take snapshots or video clips, listen to music, or use a variety of
         powerful Windows® XP compatible applications. All in a size that
         fits your bag, coat pocket, and active lifestyle.




         Music playback
         Enjoy the VAIO UX series as a portable music player using the supplied carrying case and optional headphones.
         VAIO UX series supports various applications for MP3 and ATRAC playback so you can travel with your favourite
         tunes. Internet audio publishing and Internet radio are also supported so your music can come from anywhere
         around the world in addition to what’s stored on the hard drive.



         Connect to a projector
         Connect VAIO UX series to an AV projector using the supplied Display/LAN Adapter or Port Replicator and your
         photos and presentation slides can be shown to large audiences. VAIO UX series automatically selects the proper
         aspect ratio and resolution to match the projector so all you do is ‘Plug & Display’. Just imagine –
         a multimedia presentation in a package not much bigger than a paperback novel.



         Video chat with stand
         VAIO UX series comes with a stand that easily attaches to the back of the unit so you can prop it up for a video
         chat session. This way you can keep your eyes on the screen while keeping your hands free. And with built-in
         IEEE 802.11a/b/g and Bluetooth® compatibility, you’ll have access to a wide range of wireless networks for video
         chatting, VoIP telephony and other applications.

*1 CPU speed will be reduced under certain operating conditions. *2 If memory modules of the same capacity are installed to both of the two memory module slots, this computer will run in dual channel mode and provide better performance. *3 By removing the pre-installed 512MB memory module(s) and adding two
1GB memory modules. *4 NVIDIA® TurboCache™ technology combines the size and bandwidth of video memory and dynamically available system memory for optimal system performance. *5 Necessary data for recovery (setting back to initial shipment settings) in the hard disk drive consuming approximately 7GB in
size is available separately. *6 This product is designed to playback discs that conform to the Compact Disc Digital Audio standard specifications (CD Standard). A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which mates DVD recorded material on one side with digital audio material on the other side. Please be aware that
the audio side (non-DVDside) of a DualDisc may not play on this product because it does not conform to the CD Standard. *7 High-speed/Full-speed/Low speed compatible. *8Compatibility confirmed with Sony branded “Memory Stick” media only. *9 The maximum communication distance can vary depending on
the obstacles or the distance between the communication devices, the radio waves, the operating system or the software being used. *10 The communication speed varies depending on the distance between communication devices, existence of obstacles between such devices, the device configuration, the radio
conditions, and the software in use. In addition, communication may be cut off depending on the radio conditions. *11 This product may only function with a genuine Sony battery designed for this model. *12 Estimated battery life (under JEITA Battery Run Time Measurement Method (ver.1.0).) Actual battery life may
vary with different operating conditions and settings. Estimated battery life at “SPEED MODE” will be approximately 1.5 hours shorter for VGP-BPS2C and approximately 2 hours shorter for VGP-BPL2C. For further details, please visit vaio-online.sony.com *13 The copyright protection and high-speed data transfer
features of the SD memory card are not supported. *14 Warranty conditions may vary by region. *15 Cannot be upgraded on board. The memory capacity actually available may be smaller than the one displayed depending on the software in use and the operating environment (UX). *16 Deploying IEEE 802. 11b and
IEEE 802.11g products on the same wireless network may reduce the communication speed due to radio interference. Taking this into consideration, the IEEE 802.11g products are designed to reduce the communication speed to ensure communication with IEEE 802.11b products. When communication speed
is not as fast as expected, changing the wireless channel on the access point may increase the communication speed. *17 Not usedNecessary data for recovery (setting back to initial shipment settings) in the hard disk drive consuming approximately 5GB in size is available separately. *18 Not used Necessary data
for recovery (setting back to initial shipment settings) in the hard disk drive consuming approximately 7GB in size is available separately. *19 Set to RAID 0 (Striping) at initial shipment settings.
