Sony sells a lot of VAIO laptops all over the world, but the brand new VAIO | Red Edition series is not something for the masses. The limited edition Red family consists of the following three models: VAIO Pro 13 | red edition, VAIO Duo 13 | red edition and VAIO Fit 15 | red edition.
All three models mentioned above are luxury versions of the rather common VAIO Pro, VAIO Duo and VAIO Fit notebooks, providing their users "a premium experience from color and design to performance and support." Depending on the underlying material, Sony used different painting techniques to achieve the signature red finish. The multiple paint layers are hand polished and a protective UV coating is applied at the end, ensuring protection from minor scratches and wear.
All the VAIO | red edition laptops mentioned above are powered by Intel Core i7 processors from the Haswell family (except the Ivy Bridge-powered VAIO Fit), featuring up to 12 GB of DDR3 memory, full HD touch displays and up to 512 GB of storage space (the base models feature a single SSD each).
Only available via the Sony stores and online, at www.sony.com/VaioRed, the VAIO | red edition models have the following base prices and specifications:
All three come with Windows 8 Pro 64-bit, being touch enabled and are covered by 1 year of protection against accidental damage from handling. For more information, please check the press release below the image gallery.
