Sony Pushes Laptop As Fashion Accessory

ZDNet: Sony Pushes Laptop As Fashion Accessory

ZDNet laptopist Sean Portnoy riffs on Sony’s new Signature line of Vaio laptops. Would you pay extra for a prettier-looking laptop? If you lease a BMW to impress the clients, maybe one of these babies makes sense.

“Remember when all laptop cases were a slab of plastic or, if you were lucky (i.e., you paid more), brushed aluminum? Now you can find notebooks with limited-edition case designs from famous artists, a rainbow of color choices, or even exotic materials. Sony is no stranger to tarting up its Vaio portables, as its latest Signature Collection limited edition lineup makes clear.

For those who view a laptop as a fashion accessory as much as a computing device, the Arabesque design on the Vaio EA should capture their fancy. The elaborately raised texture comes in black (pictured above), gold, and pink colors, the latter two of which would be suitable for Paris Hilton if they cost a lot more than the $919.99 they start at. That includes an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, 320GB hard drive, and 14-inch LED-backlit screen.”
