CES Product Announcements: Sony
The Sony Vaio TP25 PC Digital Living System. Sony continues to raise the bar in sleek computer design with the great-looking TP25. The TP25 has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, Blu-ray, HDTV, DVR, 4 GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA Geforce 8400M graphics CPU with up to 1535 MB of memory. High-def audio, of course, since this is more than a computer, it's your living room theater. Pricey, at $3000, but you use your HDTV as your monitor so it'll look incredibly impressive when playing Blu-ray movies and watching high-def television.
Sony Vaio AR79OU Premium Notebook PC. Not the type of laptop you'll want to be lugging with you everywhere, but if you can afford it, it's a powerhouse. 17" widescreen display with Blu-ray, and an HDTV tuner and DVR. It weighs 8.4 lbs and costs $3300.
Vaio TZ series notebook. On the other end of the size spectrum is the updated Vaio TZ series. The gorgeous carbon fiber cased notebook weighs just 2.7 lbs. but is loaded to the gills with high-performance components: Core 2 Duo processor, Sprint Mobile Broadband, choice of Solid state drive (64 GB) or huge 250 GB hard drive. All this power in a tiny package costs more than all that power in a big one: $3700.
Sony USB MicroVault flash drive. The new model MicroVault, in storage sizes from 1GB to 16 GB has a cool new feature- a clickable usb plug that pops in and out like a retractable pen. Prices start at $40.
XEL-1 OLED Television. Think your tv is thin? Sony's new OLED (organic light emitting diode) television is 3mm thin. The 11" screen is both energy efficient, and boasts startling picture quality. The contrast and color reproduction is incredible. $2500.
HDR-SR12 120GB High Definition Handycam Camcorder. The HDR-SR12 has a huge 120 GB hard drive, high-definition video recording and 10.2 megapixel still photos. 12x optical zoom and a big 3.2" LCD. But it still weighs under a pound a half. $1400.
