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.

Go for it! The base model is still pretty pricey.

You can call anything "Entry Level" but that doesn't mean you won't stil pay through the nose for it. ;)
