Sony Introduces Notebooks With Personal Style


VAIO C Series PCs Have Color, Portability and Power

SANDIEGO, Sept. 27, 2006– Designed to express your personality, Sony Electronics today took the wraps off a new line of slim notebooks in five hip colors.

With slick lines, and a chic design, the VAIO®C Series notebook line is a functional fashion statement merging portability, power and style.

Just like clothing styles, the VAIOC Series reflects individuality with such color offerings for the casing as seashell white, blush pink, spring green, espresso black and urban gray. Complementary colors frame the touchpad of the unit and accentuate the casings, while a dimpled texture adorns the palm rest of the PC.

Backed by an Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor, the VAIO C model also has plenty of power for high-speed computing and an energy-efficient battery life so you can enjoy games, music and movies longer— while away from home. The unit is Windows Vista™ capable and Windows Vista Premium ready.

“Today’s PC users demand individuality,” said Mike Abary, vice president of VAIO product marketing for Sony Electronics in the United States. “You exude style and take pride in your taste, so why buy a notebook that looks like all the rest? These new PCs reflect who you are, separating you from the crowd, while helping you get the job done.”

Freedom and Flexibility
Weighting in at about five pounds, the VAIO C notebook’s lightweight design makes it portable enough to take anywhere. And the model’s integrated 802.11a/b/g wireless LAN capabilities will be sure to keep you connected at hotspots and wireless networks – send e-mail from the sofa, share photos while lounging by the pool, or chat with friends from a Starbucks, campus or airport (Wi-Fi connection required).

The model also serves as a well-equipped home theater away from home. It features a 13.3-inch widescreen display (measured diagonally) with Sony’s original energy-saving XBRITE-ECO™ LCD technology and an onboard DVD±R Double Layer/DVD±RW/-RAM drive, so you can enjoy your favorite DVDs in brilliant colors and stunning clarity.

You can also easily create, manage and share your photos and home movies with this new model. It comes with an extensive suite of multimedia tools for easy backup of data, photos, music and videos including DVgatePlus™ and Click to DVD® software for creating your own customized DVDs.

Importing and editing digital content is easy too. Simply transfer photos from a device such as your digital camera using Memory Stick Duo™, Memory Stick Pro™ or ExpressCard™ media slots; i.LINK® (IEEE 802.11) or USB ports; or the bundled memory card adapter that accomodates various types of memory cards. Then organize them into albums or create slideshows.

Sony VAIO C Series notebooks in espresso black and urban gray will be available at the end of October at national retailers starting at about $1,350. The exclusive colors of seashell white, blush pink and spring green can be purchased in November online at or at Sony Style® stores ( in select fashion malls around the country.
