Product Information

The FW21 is Sonys entry into the world of Hi-Def, 16:9 ratio notebooks with a Blu-ray drive and a screen resolution of 1600 x 900 to make sure none of the detail is left out.

But don't let the opening lines about one of the best screens on the market put you off from studying the other impressive specs on this machine.

With one of the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors clocking in at 2.26Ghz and a full 4GB of memory, there's not much out there that runs faster than this Olympic champion.

A 320GB hard drive has more than enough room to store all your movies for instant playback and the ATI HD 3470 dedicated graphics card means all graphical applications are displayed as they were meant to be.

As for the looks, the smooth, curved lines of the VAIO FW series notebook are as functional as they are attractive. From the iconic cylindrical hinge to the sloping bezel where the keyboard meets the display, every last inch of this notebook is designed to maximize viewing area while minimizing size. It is an innovative PC with a 16.4" LCD that combines all the benefits of a 17" widescreen display with the dimensions or "footprint" of a smaller 15.4" model.

Oh and there's Bluetooth and a 1.3MP Webcam to mention before I run out of room, but I did warn you that this notebook is much more than a pretty screen.


Questions & Answers

24/01/2009 Grant: What software is included with the computer? MS Office, etc?

SteveF: The operating system, a trial of office and Norton and a few of Sonys multimedia programs.

22/01/2009 sasitron: Can the HDMI interface be used to connect this laptop to a high def plasma or LCD television to watch Blu-ray films and and use as a larger high def monitor?

David J: Yes, that is what the HDMI connection is for

19/01/2009 Buster: Is microsoft works included with this model. Thank you BoB Allison

SteveF: No, but it does come with a 60 day trial of office to get you going.

19/01/2009 semra: I am not happy with the video memory capability of this product for my design work. would it be possible to upgrade it for higher one? Or could you advise me another product thanks

David J: The graphics cards in laptops cannot be changed. This is one of the newer cards on the market and is capable of most 3D applications

15/01/2009 mike: hi, can you advise me am i able to burn blu ray disk or is it read only?

SteveF: Its a read only drive on that model. If you're wanting a blu-ray writer, have a look at VGNAW11MH which is one of the cheapest sony laptops with a blu-ray writer.

14/01/2009 amoss: Can this laptop be used to make films i.e editing

david s: as it has dedicated memory you could probably do this depending on your applications requirements

08/01/2009 tones 2.0: hi, does this laptop price include the vat or exclude it with the vat cuts?

SteveF: Yes it does.

08/01/2009 sausage: hi, i was wondering if the plice when paid for still includes vat with the current vat deductions? also would it be possible to downgrade from a blu-ray disc drive to a normal dvd at a cheaper price? Also what options are there to upgrade the sound card? thanks

SteveF: Hi, all prices include vat and the drop. Unfortunately only the ram is changeable on a laptop so the blu-ray drive and sound card can't be changed. You can buy an external soundcard though which will be a lot better than the bog standard one they usually supply.

17/11/2008 tones: hi is this laptop wireless enabled/could i connect to wireless broadband

david s: yes
