VAIO’s New ‘Fashionable’ Laptops Launched In Striking Colors
VAIO has announced a new range of mid-range ‘C15’ laptops that distinguish themselves by being “fashionable PCs.” The C15 series’ main selling point is its bright two-tone colour options, including white and copper, navy and grey, yellow and black, and orange and khaki.
Straying from its typical business audience, VAIO’s C15 line-up is targeted more at consumers who are looking for a distinctive device, The Verge reports.
Especially compared to other VAIO models, the laptop’s hardware is rather low-end. The basic model has a 15.5-inch 1366 x 768 display, an Intel Celeron 3215U processor along with 4GB of RAM on a 2016 VAIO laptop. The basic model costs 66,800 yen from the Sony store (around $640), while other stores will be selling it at 94,800 yen (around $900). For the above specifications, the model is rather highly priced, and one could consider probably getting something better for the same price.
Further, there are options to upgrade to a Full HD 1920×1080 display, an Intel Core i3 processor and 8GB of RAM for an unknown and probably huge amount of money. Connectivity is typical of a 15-inch notebook including HDMI, Ethernet and USB 3.0 ports. There is also a DVD drive, a media-focused speaker system with subwoofer, and a full-size keyboard with numeric keypad.
Currently, the C15 is exclusive to VAIO’s native region only. Also, there is no word yet on whether the company will launch the C15 in markets outside of Japan.
