New VAIO Laptops Are All Looks & No Substance

VAIO is the premiere brand that is famous for its svelte and industrial-inspired design language. The brand was discontinued a few years ago by Sony, much to the horror of its most ardent fans.

But now its back and ready to make a splash.

Coming back from the dead, the VAIO brand is focused mostly on targeting the business and enterprise level customers. Even though VAIO’s new releases are targeted at a different type of customer, it still retains its premium pricing.

Presenting The New VAIO C15 Series of Laptops

The new C15 series of laptops are a class apart from other consumer grade alternatives. Their main differentiating feature is the color customization options which include:

  • Yellow/black
  • White/Copper
  • Navy/Gray
  • Orange/Khaki

VAIO C15

The company calls these the “fashionable PC” series.

Thats all it has going for it though, at least when it comes to the pricing.

Specs and Pricing

The regular variant of this VAIO C15 comes with a 15.5 inch screen with a 1366 x 768 resolution and contains 4GB RAM with an Intel Celeron 3215U processor. For all that you need to pay 66,800 Yen or 66,391 Rupees which is keeping with the brand image of the VAIO series.

The other stores will sell these models for 94,800 yen or Rs. 94,193 approximately.

Note that this price is for the regular model. You can also upgrade to an Intel Core i3 processor with 8GB of RAM and a 1080p (1920 x 1080) screen for an equally heavy price which was not mentioned.

All things considered, this looks like a laptop for the most ardent fans of Sony and its VAIO brand.

      look and feel like cheap chinese laptops no one bit attractive.. and quiet unprofessional i am a big fan of VIAO’s premium aluminum and metal finish… it was there in 2000s when rare laptops had metalic finishes…

      • Zaki Uddin

        Yeah, vaios were the premium lineup, after mac book

    This time these even lack in looks. Look at Xiamoi new laptop in other article, Dell XPS, Lenovo Yoga series and alot more.

    This time they have failed badly with looks.

    I have used Vaio in the past but it lasted only a year. If you can afford Vaio go for macbook .

      True said.. and If you love windows… Bootcamp Rules!

    VAIO is the new Apple. They are cashing in their brand name. Sure, design is a complete departure from the sea of ultrabooks we see everyday, but the specs are laughable at best for this price.

    The recently announced Xiaomi Notebook completely destroys this thing, even in the design dept.

    I guess “pay more for less” is their new moto.
