More fun with touch panel

With Media Gallery, an exclusive VAIO application that puts the incredible HD entertainment experiences at one’s fingertips, users can easily browse through digital images, videos, games and music tracks with simple touch, flick, drag and rotate gestures on the LCD touch screen. Users can easily access the Media Gallery via VAIO Gate, an intuitive on-screen launcher that provides a one-stop entry to all Sony and third-party applications on the VAIO or by hitting the dedicated ‘VAIO’ button on the wireless keyboard with numeric keypad interface.
 
The Full HD touch panel on the VAIO J Series is also a brilliant tool for children to indulge in digital drawing and painting with their fingers, thanks to the brand new easy-to-use ‘YouPaint’ software, encouraging more family get-together time. The VAIO J Series ‘WebCam Message Board’ lets users keep in touch by taking photos with the built-in camera and adding hand-written messages which can then be posted onto the screen or sent as email attachments. Similarly, the multi-touch support of up to two points allows for two persons to play games on the VAIO J Series simultaneously.

With a clean minimalist design, the complimentary compact wireless keyboard can also be slotted underneath the main unit when not in use, leaving only a modest footprint on the desk.
 
User-friendly even for children, the VAIO J Series also features a dedicated ‘ASSIST’ button, next to the display off button. The ‘ASSIST’ button gives one-touch access to VAIO Care which simplifies basic maintenance and troubleshooting tasks to keep the VAIO in good, stable condition at all times.  With the display off button, users can conserve power consumption and enjoy quality music with the display turned off.
