Sony Rounds it Out With Mainstream Vaio CW

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 3 comments

It's the one you might see on Laptop Hunters!

Sony's big Vaio unveil has shown the rather impressive Vaio L HDTV/PC/DVR and the Vaio X is a carbon fiber shelled supernetbook, but for the everyman (and what most of us will see on display at Best Buy) there's the Vaio CW.

The Vaio CW series notebooks will launch alongside Windows 7 and come in a 14-inch 16:9 display. Being Sony notebooks, the CW line features an optional Blu-ray Disc drive for movie watching, as well as an incorporated HDMI output so that you can watch it on an HDTV to take advantage of 1080p resolution. All models also have an Nvidia GeForce G2xx M dedicated graphics card for pushing pixels.

Being mainstream notebooks, they all pack Core 2 Duo processors, so look elsewhere if you're after Clarkdale.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Vaio if it didn't have some fashion-conscious options. The CW comes in five high-gloss colors: fiery red, poppy pink, icy white, jet black and indigo purple.

The VAIO CW series notebook starts at about $780.

    What about us interested in a AMD processor and ATI graphics on a notebook?
    I know the 4870m exists, but it seems even some $2,000 laptops still use a 4670m...
