by Reads (41,157)

Today Sony announced the new VAIO C lineup of entertainment notebooks, each equipped with a second generation Intel Core i5 processor. Select models will come built with a Blu-ray player drive with HD video playback and DVD/CD read/write and a 1GB AMD Radeon 6630 hybrid graphics card.

A glowing light will run around the edges of the neon-colored notebooks, and also around the VAIO logo and the touchpad. Each model will also feature a backlit keyboard. The 14-inch VAIO CA and 15-inch VAIO CB series will be available in neon orange and green, white, and black. Both notebooks will have LED backlit widescreen displays with 1080p resolution.

Each model will also come with three quick-launch buttons on the keyboard: one button to launch media applications, one for Sony VAIO Care, and another to quickly launch your web browser.

Each notebook will have both an HD camera with an Exmor sensor; according to Sony, the camera will work well even when the lighting is low in the room. The camera also includes face-tracking technology (when you move, it moves).
