Sony has unveiled its new mainstream 14-inch and 15.5-inch Vaio Fit line-up of attractive lifestyle and multimedia notebooks Computex 2013.

Successors to the E and T series, Sony unveiled the new Vaio Fit series notebooks at Computex 2013. Announced back in early May, the Vaio Fit series consists of the entry-level 14E and 15E and the mainstream Fit 14 and Fit 15 models. All models will be available across Europe this month.

The Vaio Fit 14 and Vaio Fit 15 are 14 and 15.5 inches respectively and come in a choice of pink, silver, black and white. Apparently, the ‘Fit’ moniker stands for a minimalist design resulting in rounded corners and speakers hidden behind the hinges. The higher-end Fit series also comes with a brushed aluminium finish on the lid and palm rest.

The Vaio Fit 14 comes with an Intel Core i5-3337U processor while the Vaio Fit 15 adds the option of an Intel Core i7-3537U (though these are both Ivy Bridge processors, it’s worth noting that the ULV parts were released in Q1 2013). Both models come with a touch screen and an optional NVIDIA GeForce GT 735M.

Sony is also throwing in a full-blown creative suite of software that includes paint, video, and audio applications. These are dubbed ArtRage Studio, Movie Studio Platinum, ACID Music Studio, Sound Forge Audio Studio, and DVD Architect Studio.

The lower-end series features the Vaio Fit 14E and Vaio Fit 15E. Sony has traded-in brushed aluminium for plastic on these notebooks that are available in black, white, and pink. Touch is optional and so is the GeForce GT 740M. Besides the two ULV processors mentioned above, Sony is also offering the choice of an Intel Core i3-3227U and Pentium 987 (also a ULV part). The larger Fit 15E comes with one more option, the Intel Core i3-3217U.

Also worth mentioning is that all of the above notebook models come with NFC and Sony’s Exmor R CMOS sensor which should be rather effective for low light video calls. Detailed information on configuration options can be found in the pictures below.
