The Sony Vaio C series Sony

Sony is updating its Vaio line with a pair of new laptops, the Vaio E and the Vaio C.

The C series comes in 14- and 15.5-inch models, in a variety of colors, including red and blue. There are Intel Core i3 and i5 CPUs, optional Blu-ray drives, and AMD Radeon graphics. The C series also features Intel's Wireless Display technology, which can beam the screen image to a nearby TV (a sold-separately adapter is required).

While the C series is a midsize-only laptop, the E series goes from midsize--14- and 15.5-inch screens--all the way to a massive 17.3-inch model. The smaller E series laptops comes in midnight blue, glacier white, charcoal black, and blush pink; the 17-inch desktop replacement comes in charcoal black and glacier white.

The E-series also includes Intel's Wireless Display technology, as well as a new feature called Remote Keyboard, which allows the laptop to directly interface with select Sony Bravia TVs or Blu-ray players, or even PlayStation 3 consoles. While most E-series laptops will include an Intel Core i3 or i5 processor, an AMD E-350 will also be available in select models.

The Sony Vaio C series starts at $730, and the E series starts at $550. Both will be available starting June 19.
