Apart from a very nice design and measuring just 22.4mm thick, the 14-inch Sony 14P boast some very impressive gesture control thanks to it’s 1.3-megapixel Exmor HD web camera… more on that later.
The Sony E Series 14P’s 14-inch display has a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, and is powered by the Intel Core i3-2350M processor with 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and either Intel HD Graphics 3000 or AMD Radeon HD 7670M graphics with 1GB of VRAM.
Unlike some other smaller laptops, the Sony 14P features a DVD burner, along with a 500GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0+HS, 2x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.0 and HDMI video output. The 14P also boasts a 7 hour battery life.
As mentioned earlier, the Sony Vaio E 14P features gesture control, similar to what most people would have see from the Xbox Kinect. It reminds me of the gesture control which we have seen on the new Samsung Smart TVs. If you hold you hand up in front of the display, you can swipe through webpages, or photo galleries, and also pause and play music. You can even adjust the volume by rotating your hand, which we must admit is pretty damn cool.
Right now the gesture control is only supported by Windows Media Player, IE 9, PowerDVD and Powerpoint. But the list of apps will expand.
No pricing or release dates just yet, but we will keep you updated. It will be available in Black (with red highlights, very cool), pink, and white color options.
