New Sony Vaio C series

Recommended Posts

SONY on 22 Feb announced the VAIO C series which is exclusively known for the Green and orange neon color design. This is powered by Intel’s the second generation core i5 processor (on the website of sony in Australia has the i7), AMD Radon 1GB graphics card and has a blu-ray Disc.

Some good features are that, the keys are Backlited so that at dark it would be easy to view letters to type in.

The Webcam has Exmor sensor which allows to take a picture or Video chat online with Low-Light conditions, and the Facetracking technology automatically focus the camera when ever you are doing video chatting.

There are 2 models: VPC-CB (15.5" Full HD VAIO Premium Display 1920 x 1080 ) and VPC-CA (14" LED backlight 1600 x 900 )

If you buy before May 31 they give you a Free Bloggie Touch camera :D

"Crafted from a special light-catching material, the all-new VAIO® C Series laptops appear to glow with energy (Neon Green and Neon Orange only). The modern lines shine as the edges of the touchpad, VAIO logo and lid radiate light. Destined to turn heads wherever you go, you'll have the ultimate stunner, whether it's the 14" or 15.5" screen size. The Signature Collection C Series is available in four exclusive colors: Bolt Black, Lightning White, Neon Green and Neon Orange"

You can see a few reviews here

Another review here

They are not the finest, the lightest or the most powerful, but certainly they take the prize for the most striking/shining :D

The design of the C Series is, at least, original. The top cover has been coated with an acrylic-like material and painted with fluorescent colors. Just the slightest light on surface and is like a Christmas tree lol

Starting price at $749

I think they are quite attractive, and as I can understand are quite solid.

Do not know how powerful it is for games, but in some videos I've seen running new games with relative ease, like GTA IV, Crysis 2, Mafia 2, etc

I would pick one of these over an Alienware M14x. I love the look of the white one and of course Sony always has high quality displays. Hmm if I only had some spare cash for a second notebook.

I like the bright colours, no need for laptops to all be black. The orange one especially reminds me of the gameboy I had as a kid.:17_002:

      Apparently this laptop can run recent games with good quality graphics.
      According Notebookcheck.net The AMD Radeon HD 6630M is a middle class graphics card for laptops. It supports DirectX11 and is the successor of the low clocked HD 5650 chips (low power). Compared to the HD 5650 it offers 80 more shader, Eyefinity+ and the new UVD3 video decoder.
      Pipelines: 480 - unified
      Core Speed: 485 MHz
      Shader Speed: 485 MHz
      Memory Speed: 800 MHz
      Memory Bus Width: 128 Bit
      Memory Type: DDR3
      Apparently, and as I understand it (I dont have one) this lappy has 2 issues:
      1. With heavy use the fan can be noisy (I think there is a bios update that fixes this)
      2. With heavy use as games can get hot
