Sony has unveiled its latest notebook refresh, the Vaio E series 14, a lightweight laptop with gesture control.

The Vaio E series packs an Intel Core i3 processor with 4GB of DDR3 memory and a 1GB AMD Radeon HD graphics chip. There's also 500GB of hard drive storage, a DVD drive, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, and an HDMI connection.

But it's the Kinect-like gesture control that Sony highlights here, allowing users to access apps and browse content with hand movements in front of the built-in 1.3Mp webcam.

As it stands, this function is only supported in Windows Media Player, Internet Explorer 9, Powerpoint and PowerDVD, though.
