Sony Launches Vaio E Series Today: Core i5 Notebooks

There may be only one build of the Sony Vaio E notebook you can buy today, but your colouring options are equal parts expansive and aggressive. Even beyond the plumage, though, you’re looking at a nice little set-up.

It’s easy to be distracted by the glare of the “Caribbean Green” and “Hibiscus Pink” colour schemes, but under the hood of the 15.5-inch Vaio E available today are a Core i3 processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD and a CD/DVD burner standard for $US800.

The 3.5 hours of battery life is a little disappointing, but otherwise, the Vaio E looks to be a reasonably priced notebook with some pep. And if you don’t necessarily need your laptop to be visible from 500 yards, black and white models are also available. Oh, I’m sorry – “Lava Black” and “Coconut White” models. [Sony via Electronista]
