Sony VAIO FZ Eco Edition

Signaling the first regularly available custom graphics treatment for the VAIO FZ series notebook, Sony on Thursday launched the Graphic Splash Eco Edition to both spur sales and improve its enviroment-friendly standing. In addition to the nature-themed outer shell designs of Bloom, Caribbean Water, Clay Earth, and Spotted Life, each system contributes one percent of its sales to the 1% For the Planet foundation to reinvest some of the cost of the system back into the ecosystem. The material savings of a relatively thin notebook and computer recycling programs (including for non-Sony PCs) are also important, Sony claims.

The Eco Edition is based on the reference FZ290 and includes many of the mid-range features of the 15.4-inch VAIO system's lineup, including a 2GHz Core 2 Duo, GeForce 8400M GT, and a 200GB hard disk; the model is also one of the first to have the custom-order option of a 2.6GHz Core 2 Duo. A base configuration starts at $1,340 and is available to order today, although Sony does not expect to start shipping the special-order systems until November 27th.
