Sony has announced the upcoming release of the VAIO NW series PC notebooks. The new VAIO NW series is only 1.2-inch thick, making it a direct competitor against thin laptops such as the Macbook Air.
The new VAIO NW series notebook computer features a quick web access button so you can get online without fully loading up your PC. It is also designed with unique tactile features such as a subtle textured surface applied across the cover and inside, and has an HDMI output for easy HD entertainment. Its environmental credentials are hard to miss with a one-touch “DISPLAY OFF” button and compliancy to the stringent ENERGY STAR 5.0 standard.

The basic Sony VAIO NW Series model will be powered by 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB DDR2 RAM, 400GB hard drive and ATI Radeon HD 4580 graphic card. It has a 15-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1366 x 768, and a Blu-Ray drive and built-in WiFi. It is pretty good!
Sony VAIO NW series laptops will start at $800 for the above spec model. The upgraded model with a Blu-ray Disc drive costs just $80 more.
