Sony's crocodile skin Vaio has teeth

Sony Japan has updated its Vaio C laptop line with crocodile skin versions in several cool colors.

When I heard Sony Japan had updated its Vaio C laptop series with pink crocodile skin, I was extremely concerned. However, upon viewing pictures of the product, I kind of want one. Which concerns me even more, as generally I am morally opposed to pink gadgets.

Animal lovers needn't worry--no pink crocodiles were harmed in the making of this laptop. Sony used plastic to reproduce the crocodile effect, and the bumpy texture looks surprisingly authentic.

The exclusive Vaio Owner Made edition will also come in brown and red when it becomes available on April 18 in Japan for $1,024. No word yet on when these babies will be slithering onto American shores.
