Product Information : Sony VAIO E Series VPC-EC3S0E/WI

Manufacturer's product description

The VAIO E series notebook refuses to blend in. Designed with personalization in mind, its subtle patterns and inviting finishes let you choose a style that's all your own. Even the interior is striking, with clear-coat palm rests that match the lid and available colorful keyboard skins to spice things up. No matter what you do on the E series notebook, it's sure to look fantastic. Whether you're watching HD movies or editing your digital photo collection, your day-to-day processor functions will be optimized for serious productivity. Sporting isolated keys and an edge-to-edge design, the E series notebook's keyboard is quite impressive. You'll love the firm yet comfortable feedback of the keys, and the numeric keypad is a welcome addition for inputting figures fast.
