Sony announces more Vaios

Sony is big on their new Vaio range, and this time round we have the NS and CS models to keep our wallets light but egos satisfied. Both models from Sony will offer portable multimedia solutions without breaking the bank, as prices start from $1,000 upwards (for the NS model) which enable customers to enjoy high definition entertainment on their computers. The Vaio NS will come with an optional Blu-ray disc optical drive if you’re up to it, but I would suggest watching Blu-ray movies over a large screen HDTV insted of on the monitor since the screen size would not do the movie justice. More on both the NS and CS models right after the jump.

The Vaio NS comes with a 15.4″ widescreen LCD display that is augmented by Sony’s proprietary XBRITE-ECO LCD technology, exuding sharp details and vivid colors to tickle your senses. It makes accessing music, movies and the Internet a snap, featuring integrated A/V mode with a dedicated menu, an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running the proceedings smoothly, a decent amount of RAM to make sure no bottlenecks occur, and more than enough storage for your everyday work and entertainment needs. If you’re interested in the Vaio NS line, then you can choose from nightfall blue, silk white and granite silver colors. Stock Vaio NS notebooks will retail from $650, but those who opt for the Blu-ray disc model must fork out a minimum of $1,000.

As for the Vaio CS, this model will come in a choice of sangria, cosmopolitan, dove and black colors. You get a smaller 14.1″ widescreen LCD display with a similar XBRITE-ECO LCD technology and an optional Blu-ray optical drive. The keyboard is slightly different from the rest, boasting spacing between keys for a more comfortable typing experience. I haven’t tried it out for myself just yet, but I suppose extensive tests have been done to come to such a conclusion. Other features include a specialized keyboard font and a 12-tone music analyzer, all powered by Intel’s Centrino 2 processor family. The Vaio CS will retail for $920 upwards, but if you want a Blu-ray model, then be prepared to meet the slightly higher asking price of $1,070. Image courtesy of Engadget.
