Sony offers custom built VAIO S notebooks

Sony has begun offering customers the option of custom VAIO S notebooks from its website. The four-pound, 13.3-inch computers can now be configured with up to a 256GB SSD, as much as 8GB of RAM and a 2.66GHz Core i5. Also on offer is a backlit keyboard, a Blu-ray drive, Windows 7 Professional and 512MB NVIDIA GeForce graphics.

With Intel graphics onboard, the VAIO S will get WiDi, allowing them to stream content wirelessly to compatible HDTVs. A free upgrade to a Core i5 CPU is offered for the custom-built models along with Windows 7 Professional, though whether this is a limited time offer isn't specified.

Those who opt for a pre-built model will get a free extended warranty.

Traditionally offered in black or silver, the VAIO S was newly added to Sony's Signature line, which will add wavy black and wavy black to the color choices for a limited time. These notebooks also get equipped with a 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 310M.

The custom VAIO S notebooks start at $875.
