Sony Vaio W Brown

Yeah, so I’m a Mac user. However, I cannot deny my attraction to the Sony VAIO W-Series. These models have a slick, ultra-portable design and come in three fun colors – berry pink, sugar white and cocoa brown. The W Series incorporates a high-resolution, 1366x768, LED-backlit 10.1-inch ultra-wide display, making it easy to view two full web pages—bye bye side scrolling. You also get a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 160GB hard drive, 1GB RAM, Bluetooth, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, built-in webcam, Ethernet, and more. Starting at $499.99, Sony VAIO W-Series offers a stylish secondary PC alternative for those who travel and need to keep connected.

Sony Recalls Some VGN VAIOs

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Corporate News, PC / Laptop

Sony VAIOOne step forward, two steps back. As soon as we start to complement Sony on their creativity, we read something like this that kills the mood. The company is recalling about 438,000 VAIOs (over 72,000 in the U.S.) as potential fire hazards. The problem seems to be occurring in their VGN-TZ100, VGN-TZ200, VGN-TZ300 and VGN-TZ2000 series. They say the problem is “irregularly positioned wires near the computer’s hinge and/or dislodged screw inside the hinge.”

Pretty scary, eh? Especially when you notice that the word “battery” isn’t mentioned.

Posted by Lolita Beckwith Categories: Design, PC / Laptop

Sony Vaio

Sony has introduced its new VAIO Type G notebook, which actually has a drainage system built under the palm rest, and draining holes under the notebook itself. Plus, if you spill your Pumpkin Spice Latte on the machine, it automatically shuts off (Sony does recommend having the computer checked out anyway). In addition, the LCD screen has a special coating to prevent scratches, and can withstand a drop from 28” while turned on, and almost 35.5” when powered off.  This take-no-prisoners VAIO is available in Japan for approximately $1500 USD, depending on how it’s customized. No word on when it will be available stateside.
