New VAIO Neon C Series May Blind You

VAIO CA

Yes, you heard it, Sony decided to go all out and bring some smashing neon colors to  your life, that of course if you bring one of their VAIO CA or CB series home. The exclusive colors will be represented in neon green as well as neon orange with 14 inch and 15.5 inch LED widescreen displays. I guess the VAIO P that came in similar coats did not attract that needed attention, so the bigger size and more neon color would definitely blow your fellow Starbucks coffee junkies away. Sony did not stop at just that, expect to see light radiating around the edges of the laptop, through the VAIO logo, and even around the touchpad emitting a beautiful glow, add to this the lit keyboard and you got a Tron-like visual effects in a dark room.

On the software side, the future users of these models will be greeted with the Sony Imagination Studio™ Suite VAIO® Edition combines five powerful Sony® applications for easily enhancing and sharing your music, photos, and movies. Turn your video shoots into Hollywood-style movies with Vegas™ Movie Studio HD Platinum. Make your own original music tracks or create remixes and mash-ups of your favorite songs with Acid™ Music Studio.  And of course you can burn your videos to DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ media (select models) to share with your family and friends.

Interesting to note, these new models also come pre-installed with Remote Keyboard that some of you are familiar already, however this time it not only controls your PlayStation 3 XMB menu, it will also help navigate menus and options within your connected BRAVIA® television or Blu-ray Disc player (we are pretty sure it applies to 2011 models).

Specifications are not bad either – you will end up with second generation Intel Core i5 processor that delivers even more performance automatically when you need it with a better visual PC experience built-in.

In graphics department – AMD Radeon HD 6630 1GB Hybrid Graphics card (select models) gives a performance boost to your day-to-day processor functions for a faster, more optimized overall computing experience while lowering power consumption.

If you are not a fan of neon colors, Sony will be glad to sell you Lightning White and Bolt Black C Series which have a distinctive, appealing pattern that hints at the sophistication and powerful technology on the inside.

Expected ship dates are in mid March starting at $880.
