Sony goes Blu-Ray and budget conscious with latest Vaio


Sony has today announced the budget friendly Vaio NW series. For $880 (about £535) lucky American’s can grab themselves a Vaio laptop complete with Blu-ray player. There is an $800 version that comes without the Blu-ray but, quite frankly, we’re not that interested in that.

The laptop has an impressive spec line-up to go with the Blu-ray bonus and relatively low price-tag:

  • 15.5-inch WXGA screen
  • 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor
  • Radeon HD4570, 512MB graphics
  • 400GB hard-drive
  • 4GB DDR2 RAM

Also the battery should last over five hours and there’s also HDMI output and multiple memory card slots – MemoryStick Pro, Express Card and SD Card. This looks like being a great option for the quoted price.

No details as of yet about a UK release I’m afraid but, as always, when we know – you’ll know.
