The Young and Stylish
Developed in collaboration with the Design Centre Europe, the VAIO C2-Series allows you to truly express yourself with a strong, youthful and diverse feel to the range. The laptop colours have been developed to give each model a special appeal to certain personality types. The original five timeless black, nomad grey, karma white, free spirit pink and natura green - have been joined by a sixth, rediscovery blue. A mix of soft blue tones with storm greys, the new colour evokes skies and seas and feelings of self-awareness and stimulation. To ensure the look is smooth the range is complemented with colour-matched desktop mice and a specially created collection of stylish carry bags from leading designer Mandarina Duck.
The Business Traveller
Designed to push performance beyond the normal boundaries imposed by portability, the VAIO SZ4-Series is the ultra-portable model for professionals. Combining visually beguiling carbon fibre construction with one of the slimmest screens ever produced, the SZ4-Series is effortlessly stylish and effortlessly portable at just 1.69kg. Its also the only notebook in the world with two graphics chipsets, enabling users to opt for extended battery life or huge graphics power depending on what they need.
The Entertainment Lover
For those wanting a portable that has the power for serious fun, theres the VAIO FE40-Series. Behind the scenes, theres hard-hitting processing and graphics power from a potent combination of Intel Core 2 Duo processors and NVIDIA GeForce Go graphics. The large, dual lamp widescreen X-black LCD enhanced display is perfect for movies and games, and the rest of the time its a comfortably roomy Windows workspace.
The Family Choice
When value and versatility are the key considerations, the distinctive, white VAIO N20-Series is the ideal choice. Sporting a highly readable, X-black LCD 15.4-inch widescreen display and powered by a choice of Intel Core 2 Duo and Core Duo processors, the N20-Series combines ergonomic design with plenty of real-world performance. This mix of practicality and ease of use makes the N20-Series an obvious choice for a general purpose home notebook or for students needing their own portables.
The Complete Digital Media Centre
Sonys unique all-in-one PC-TV fusion, the VAIO LA2-Series, now comes with a full 2GB of memory as standard to ensure super-smooth multimedia performance. The ultra-slim system unit is immensely stylish and will look good in any room in the house, where it will act as the complete digital media centre.
