Of all the notebooks available right now, the Sony VAIO C Series VPCCB15FG is certainly one of the most eye-catching. The style-conscious will certainly be content with the C Series, and while the specs aren’t very impressive, for the price it’s hardly toothless. As it stands the C Series is a solid, vibrant-looking product with a great screen that is undermined by a very high price.

Sony has once again proved that Windows is not synonymous with boring. This laptop is visually appealing and, better yet, it doesn’t require that buyers sacrifice their left arm for the sake of looks. While the signature collection is extra, there are four color choices – Bolt Black, Thunder Blue, Neon Green and Lightening White – available at no extra charge.

If you can get over the audacious colours (and let's face it, you probably won't), the Sony VAIO CB Series (VPCCB15FG) is actually a very capable desktop replacement notebook with good speed and useful battery life. We hate its green, orange and pink colours, and think it should only be considered in black or white, but it's comfortable to use and has a great screen.
