Video: Sony's new Vaio Type C brings a little Rolly to your lap
Rolly -- despite its general uselessness and non-impulse-buy $400 price tag. It exists as more of a corporate statement than a real piece of useful consumer electronics, one that Sony is ready to exploit by applying its internals to something rather more tedious: yet another Vaio laptop. The 14.1-inch VGN-CS60B offers a multi-colored light bar on the front that uses the Rolly's trademarked "12 Tone Analysis" to turn your dorm room into a (dimly lit) discotheque, and a series of blinking LEDs above the keyboard that makes adjusting the volume level a little more interesting. The Type C includes a 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB HDD, 802.11n WiFi and a FeliCa port, all served up by Windows Vista Home Premium. Despite its ho-hum specs It should be enough to make Japanese schoolgirls giddy when it releases in Japan later this week for about $1,400. Video of said light show after the break.
