Sony Vaio NR Series  (Source: Sony)
Sony's new VAIO NR series starts at $750 USD

Sony isn't exactly known for low-priced computer hardware, but the company is looking to turn some heads with its new VAIO NR series of entry-level notebooks.

The new notebooks are based around a 15.4" WXGA screen with XBRITE-ECO technology. The NR110 and NR120 are available with a 1.46GHz Pentium Dual Core processor, the NR140 uses a 1.6GHz Pentium Dual Core processor and the NR160 uses a 1.5GHz Core 2 Duo processor.

The NR140 comes with a 120GB HDD while the rest of the lineup includes a 160GB HDD. All models feature 1GB of DDR2 memory, an Intel GMA X3100 integrated graphics accelerator and a dual-layer DVD burner.

Sony gives buyers the choice of three exterior colors for the VAIO NR notebooks: brown, bright white and granite.

The VAIO NR series measures 14.2" x 10.6" x 1.5" and weighs a hefty 6.2 pounds with the standard battery. Sony lists the battery life at 2.5 to 4.5 hours with the standard battery and 4 to 7.5 hours with the extended battery.

The VAIO NR series will start at $750 and will be available from Sony Style next month.

While I personally can't attest to Sony's build quality compared to others, I'm glad they are bringing some sexy competition to the sub-$800 market. Keep drivin' those prices down! If it's possible to equip a Core 2 Duo and still stay under $900 - that would be wonderful.

Bah, the brown one is ugly, sorry. Actually they're all kind of ugly compared to typical Sony laptops.
