Sony announced its new VAIO N Series notebooks today, which are designed to fit in with your home’s dÃƒÆ’Ã†’Ãƒâ€šÃ‚©cor. The Wenge brown model is blends in with your wooden furniture, the black is supposed to look elegant, and “white for a light, airy feeling.”
Sony’s really stressing the design aspect of this line to differentiate it from everyone else’s , even leaving out most specs from the press release.
“From the furniture you sit on to the artwork you hang on your walls, you coordinate every aspect of your home’s style so why hide your PC?” Sony’s Vice President of VAIO Product Marketing Mike Abary said. “These new notebooks are designed to accent your interior design, as well as your life.”
If you aren’t a gamer and are more concerned about your notebook looking pretty as it sits on your coffee table, then this might be worth a look.
The base specs will get home users by with the basics, with prices starting at $999.
