Sony VAIO NR Laptop Coming Soon

by Reads (41,269)

It appears the new Sony VAIO NR laptop will be arriving soon based on a spec sheet leaked from a German website. It’s a pretty basic 15.4" screen laptop with Core 2 Duo processor and integrated graphics. The curvy design makes a mostly run-of-the-mill machine look a little more interesting though.

The VAIO NR will come in two colors, the lower spec machine in a silver finish with the higher spec machine in a darker charcoal grey/black finish. The European low-end silver model of the NR will be model number VGN-NR11SS with the following specs:

  • Intel Core 2 Duo T5250 Processor (1.5GHz, 2MB Cache, 667MHz FSB)
  • 2GB RAM
  • Intel X3100 graphics
  • 15.4" WXGA X-Black LCD (glossy display, X-Black = XBrite in North America)
  • 200GB HD
  • 802.11 a/b/g wireless
  • Ports: 4 USB, FireWire, VGA out, headphones, microphone
  • Slots: Memory Stick, SD card, ExpressCard 34mm

The Sony VAIO NR11Z/T will have a faster processor and come in a darker color seen below.

The specs for the NR11Z/T will be as follows:

  • Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 Processor (2GHz, 2MB Cache, 800MHz FSB)
  • 2GB RAM
  • Intel X3100 graphics
  • 15.4" WXGA X-Black LCD (glossy display, X-Black = XBrite in North America)
  • 200GB HD
  • 802.11 a/b/g wireless
  • Ports: 4 USB, FireWire, VGA out, headphones, microphone
  • Slots: Memory Stick, SD card, ExpressCard 34mm

Overall this looks to be a budget version of the existing Sony VAIO FZ series without such things as the instant-on media, no dedicated graphics and a more rounded looking design. Nothing terribly exciting, and no word on pricing or when to expect the VAIO NR on shelves. We’d guess sometime this fall and based on specs a price starting at $899 or so.
