sony vaio c2 'rediscovery blue' laptop

Hardware Widow Sony has taken the wraps off its spring laptop collection, darlings, touting not only the notebooks stylish looks but also the fact they'll all come bundled with Windows Vista. Desktop Vaios will ship with Microsoft's flash new operating system too, it said.

In the case of the female-friendly C2 series, buyers will get the Home Premium version of the OS. Sony launched the C2 series back in September 2006, but it's adding a new colour to the line up this spring: "rediscovery blue", if you please.

Next up, the Vaio SZ4, wonderfully slim and pre-installed with Vista Business edition - but not, it seems, the Premium form. The SZ4 weighs a mere 1.7kg and contains two GPUs, one for best, one for casual - and boosting the battery life.

Last year's launch of the MacBook-like Vaio N10 will be followed this spring with the N20. It'll be offered with a range of Core Duo and Core 2 Duo processors, and will have sufficient graphics horsepower for the Vista Premium era.
