The FW270j is a laptop that is obviously intended for multimedia pleasure, and to that end the Blu-ray drive, HDMI port and high end show prove a valuable tandem. Next to the set of media control buttons, there is also a button labeled “AV Mode” which calls up Sony’s built in media playing software.
There is also a programmable shortcut button on the other side of the media control buttons, and an incorporated webcam. Sony packs this laptop with software that will help you take your pictures and turn them into a movie or any other sort of arrangement. You can even use it as a safety camera of sorts which will only film when the camera detects motion.
One thing we didn’t like that much was the interior speaker. The volume got beautiful loud, but the excellence of sound failed to impress. For a computer intended to play media, we were expecting more.
