The Blu-ray drive allows high-definition movies to be played back, as well as access to large-capacity data discs. An HDMI connection allows connection to HDTVs, for watching movies and previewing video when editing.
Sony has also debuted the FE30 series, which features a 15.4-inch widescreen display with dual lamp technology to increase brightness and contrast. It offers a choice of Core 2 Duo and a large 200GB hard drive.
