  1. Grab some sunglasses and feast your eyes on Sony's new Vaio C series. The new laptops sport an exclusive orange or green color scheme that Sony hopes will appeal to folks wanting to "show off their creative side." The neon colors would undoubtedly deter some prospective buyers, but Sony plans to offer black, white and pink versions for the less adventurous type. The systems also radiate light through the Vaio logo and around the edges in their shell color.

    Thank God! It's about time! Barbie and Ken have been dying for a laptop that matches their life style! I'd like to be the first to suggest matching dollar store sunglasses free with every lappie.

    I hope Sony sees fit to hook them up with a matching "Easy Bake Oven". Oh, and before I forget, maybe some neon plastic roller skates.

    Nuthin' like news on the the cutting edge of technology to peak my interest, and get the juices flowin'!. Gotta jet now, time for my nap. Zzzzzzz.....

    Anyway, these are a waste of money.

    They are still available in black so no reason to get your trousers in a bunch.

    Hate it all you want, but I think more colors is a good thing. These definitely aren't for me, but why not?

    It's not that i'm not adventurous, I just don't feel like attracting attention to myself when i'm out in public. I just want a burger and a place to check my mail...not be stared at by everyone who walks by, or make people think there's road work ahead, or make people think the traffic light is green.
    And how the hell is pink not adventurous? It may not be neon like the orange and green, but it's still an attention getter.

    It's all about having choices. Not everyone likes black or gray colored laptops. What matters is the stuff under the hood and from the limited information available from Sony i.e. Sandy Bridge CPUs with optional mid-range ATI discrete graphics, I'd say their specs are pretty decent, neon color or not.
