Today, Sony has announced a new series of VAIO Windows PCs – the VAIO E Series. This new 15.5” laptop will come in 5 high-gloss colors: Caribbean Green, Iridescent Blue, Coconut White, Hibiscus Pink and Lava Black. 3 matte colors can also be chosen: Maple Brown, Silver White and Gunmetal.
I don’t know about you but I’m sold on the Caribbean Green. I love this color.
The keyboard on the VAIO E Series is edge-to-edge with the numeric pad built-in. Sony did this to give users the experience of using a “full” keyboard but in a smaller space. The touch pad is dimpled and integrated into the palm rest.
