Sony VAIO C Series

Sony was one of the first companies to release a 13.3-inch widescreen laptop, but the company's VAIO S has always been targeted at professionals - not the home users and students that Apple targets with its similarly-sized MacBook. Today, Sony announced a new series of laptops that compete more directly with the features and style of Apple's systems. The VAIO C series, much like the MacBook and Sony's larger VAIO N, emphasizes individualism: models will be available in solid black and white as well as green, pink, and a hybrid orange/gray. Exact features weren't made public in the announcement, but Sony says that a Core 2 Duo processor, a DVD rewriter, and slots for both ExpressCard and Memory Stick formats will be standard. More importantly, the price of the new systems will be within range of the MacBook and similar computers: Sony will sell base models for $1350 when the C series begins shipping in late October. A photo of the new system in pink is available after the jump.
