Inevitably, the topic of Valentine’s Day is going to come up in this post, so I’m not going to make too much of an effort to avoid falling into that money-grabbing pit. They may say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but if you have a gadget-loving girlfriend like I do (I’m so proud), she might better appreciate this Sony VGN-C290 laptop wrapped in a pink casing. It’s got all those latest innovations like a Core 2 Duo processor (up to the 2.33GHz T7600) and an “energy-saving 13.3-inch widescreen LCD display with XBRITE-ECO technology.”
The rest of the specs — in case she’s interested — jump through the usual hoops we all know and love including integrated WiFi, extended battery life, a 5400rpm SATA drive (from 60GB to 160GB), 1GB to 2GB of RAM, and an optional DVD burner. Naturally, it runs on Vista too: your choice of Business or Home Premium. If you’re feeling a little thrifty, Sony can also outfit this customizable laptop with a Celeron M 440 or regular Core Duo T2060 instead.
In addition to Blush Pink, the five-pound Sony VGN-C290 is also available in Espresso Black, Glacier Blue, Seashell Silver, Spring Green, and — for the not so adventurous — Urban Gray.
