Roughly two years ago, Sony sold off its VAIO PC business line to an investment fund, spinning it off as an independent company. It has then released a slew of devices, like the 'VAIO Phone', 'Canvas Z,' and the Windows 10 Mobile handset, the 'Phone Biz.' And recently, it has announced a new laptop computer aimed for the fashion-savvy people, called the VAIO C15.
The laptop's main selling point is its span of color combinations, which range from yellow/black, orange/khaki, white/copper, and navy/gray. The yellow/black and orange/khaki has a 15.5-inch display, with a screen resolution of 1366x768. Under the hood, it runs on an Intel Celeron 3215U processor, with 4 GB of RAM, and 500 GB/1TB SSD for storage. Peculiarly, VAIO also gives buyers an option to install either Windows 7 or Windows 10 onto the machine. This variant is priced at 66,800 yen (roughly $641), but is only available to buy at Sony stores. Regular stores will sell the C15 for 94,800 yen (roughly $910).
On the other hand, the white/copper and navy/gray variant of the VAIO C15 can be upgraded to a 1080p display (1920x1080 resolution), 8 GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i3 processor. However, it is not specified how much this will set back those who will decide to upgrade their laptops.
Other features of the C15 include a DVD drive, anti-glare LCD screen to reduce possible eye strain, a subwoofer with 'high-quality' speakers, and a full-sized keyboard. It also has an Ethernet port, as well as HDMI and USB.
It is not yet fully known when the devices will start to be sold, but according to VAIO, a pre-order sale is scheduled to start by September 1 for the VAIO C15's yellow/black variant.
