Upcoming VAIO CA and CB laptops to come in colorful options

These luminous notebooks will certainly catch attention in public

Shown as notebook concepts at CES 2011, Sony is now ready to release the VAIO laptops as a new line, called the VAIO C Series. What makes the new C Series so special is its special “light-emitting material” that makes up the laptop chassis. This allows for translucent, neon colors that even create a “glow” around the trackpad area, according to Electronista. If Sony is trying to distinguish itself from the competition with flamboyant laptop colors, it has definitely succeeded.

The laptops won’t be all show, however, as its internals will still pack quite a punch. The new series will include Intel’s second generation Core i5 processors with Radeon HD 6630M graphics and a Blu-ray drive. Integrated graphics will also be included for fast switching between discrete and integrated, akin to Nvidia’s Optimus. The laptops will even include special navigation controls for remote accessing to Bravia TVs, Blu-ray players and Playstation 3s.

SonyStyle will be accepting pre-orders starting March 13. Initially, the shiny new C Series will be available in white, black, green or orange, but only in two models and sizes, the 14-inch CA model and the 15.5-inch CB model.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
