Sony Unveils Inexpensive VAIO NR Series

Next Story

Mimico Halo Mimobots Are Here!

Sony makes great electronics, but boy oh boy can it make some terrible computers. Overpriced, always breaking and never a good bargain, the Sony VAIO is a platform I’ve avoided for years. Now with the new NR series of laptops, things might change a bit for the Japanese electronics manufacturer. Starting at $750, the VAIO NR series is priced for those on a budget. Don’t worry though, Sony hooked it up with plenty of features to make it worthwhile.

On the new VAIO NR laptops you’ll find:
-One of three new colors: wenge, silk, and granite
-A “fabric-like feel”
-15.4-inch XBRITE-ECO WLCD
-Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs on select models
-Windows Vista Home Premium
-A DVD burner for burnin’ the hot flix
-802.11a/b/g wireless
-LocationFree software for place-shifting live TV, etc.
-Multi card reader and ports o’ plenty

As long as the processor is decent and Sony didn’t cheap out on RAM, this sounds like a decent buy. Let’s hope it’s not plagued by past VAIO issues.
