Sony is set to roll out its new VAIO E14 series across the region.

The new 14-inch notebook comes equipped with third generation Intel Core i5 and i7 CPUs and an AMD Radeon HD 7670M discrete GPU. Sony claims the notebook has a battery life of up to 5.5 hours, which is enhanced by the discreet GPU that automatically switches off when tasks that aren't graphics intensive are being performed.

The Sony VAIO E14 features a new ‘Rapid wake + Eco' energy-saving mode, where the notebook goes into a very low power deep sleep. This mode can keep your data safe for up to ten days, and once the laptop is opened, it can be up and running in a few seconds with all your files left the same way as when it was closed. The VAIO E14 is also equipped with a backlit keyboard for typing in unlit situations.

The PC's multi-gesture touchpad has a button-free clickable surface, that gives enough space to scroll, flick, pinch/zoom and pivot movements. The ‘Gesture Control' feature allows users to interact with the computer via the webcam. Web pages, photo galleries, slideshows and volume adjustment, can now all be done with the flick of a hand.

The VAIO E14 is available in five colours including white, black, pink, silver and gun metal, and will be available in
