The C series will come in 14 or 15.5-inch variants with up to a 1080p display. All versions will pack Intel's second-generation Core i5 processors and for a premium price, select models will forgo Sandy Bridge's integrated graphics by adding a discrete Radeon HD 6630 with 1GB of VRAM. Certain configurations will also be outfitted with a Blu-ray player as well as Intel's WiDi 2.0, which lets you wirelessly stream HD video to your TV. No word on RAM or HDD capacities.
Other features include Sony's Remote Keyboard, which allows the Vaio C to enter text, navigate menus and browse the web on the company's PlayStation 3 as well as connected Bravia TVs and Blu-ray players. The press release also notes that systems will come with the Sony Imagination Studio Suite 2 Vaio Edition installed, which includes music and video editing software. Presales of the Vaio C series should kick off on March 13 with pricing starting around $880.
