Sony Graphic Splash VAIOs
Sony this morning has sought to entice holiday buyers by releasing limited Graphic Splash Editions of two of its key VAIO laptop lines. Both the 13.3-inch, mid-range C-series and the 17-inch AR-series desktop replacement will be produced in small quantities with an artistic outer shell. No more than 2,150 of the C-series (pictured) will be produced with the choice of Green/Red Storm, Angel, Blue Streaks, or Pink Swirl styles. Only 500 of the flagship AR series will in turn be produced, with the choice of either Green Streaks or Orbit for color schemes. Both systems are available today and command a premium over base models: the VAIO C is priced at $1,150 with its custom shell, while the AR in Graphic Splash Edition trim is priced at $2,270.
