There are five colours to choose from "to complement your style and look". Silver (for "sophisticated men or women"), pink ("for the free spirit who likes to be noticed"), green ("for the explorer"), grey and orange model ("for the jet-setting nomad") and a black model with burgundy trim ("for the person who wants the classic understated look").
Sony fails to mention the actual specification, but a bit of digging finds a decent-looking Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 120GB hard drive, 1GB of memory (which can be upgraded to 2GB), 13.3" WXGA widescreen X-black LCD screen, NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400 graphics, writeable DVD drive, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
In addition to the actual notebooks, you can also pick up a rangte of C-Series notebook bags, created by Italian bag designer Mandarina Duck and available in pink, green, white and black to suit your choice of C-Series.
The notebooks are available from the end of October, priced from around £1,000.
