Software Bundle

Besides Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, the notebook comes with a large software bundle that includes the following applications:

Audio:

  • SonicStage 3.4
  • SonicStage Mastering Studio 2.1
  • DSD Direct 1

Video and TV:

  • Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0
  • DVgate Plus 2.2
  • VAIO Edit Components 6.0
  • WinDVD 5.0 для VAIO

Photography:

  • Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0

CD-DVD recording:

  • Roxio DigitalMedia SE 7
  • Click to DVD 2.5
  • Ulead BD Discrecorder

Office applications:

  • Adobe Acrobat Elements 7.0
  • Adobe Reader 7.0
  • Microsoft Works 8.0

Security, etc:

  • Norton Internet Security 2006
  • Norton Ghost 10 (тест)
  • VAIO Recovery Utility 2.6 (system recovery using a hidden disk partition)
  • Skype 2.0, Google pack

The Recovery system is placed on a hidden partition on the hard disk. The manufacturer doesn’t enclose system restore discs with the notebook, but you can make them by yourself by doing the following:

Choose Start → Programs → VAIO Recovery Tool

Then take two recordable DVDs and follow the instructions the program will give you. Choose the Create a Recovery Kit option and insert the first DVD into the optical drive. When the first disc is written, the program will ask you to replace it with the second one.

That’s all. After this process you’ll have two discs: Application Recovery and System Recovery. Label them and keep in a safe, dry place. I only wonder why the manufacturer didn’t take the trouble of including ready-made recovery discs as a nice gift to the potential notebook owner.
