Sony unveiled the Vaio FW notebook—a multimedia PC that displays HD movies. Part of a series, the VAIO FW notebook comes in multiple configurations, including a premium and a standard model. The premium model plays Blu-ray Disc(TM) 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 a 16.4-inch display, which combines the benefits of a slightly larger 17- 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.

The notebook is powered by new Intel Centrino 2 technology, the chipset designed for sizzling performance, instant system responsiveness and energy efficiency. Select units come pre-installed with the Windows Vista(R) Ultimate operating system.

The notebooks are available in titanium gray and powder white, and start at about $1,000.
