Remember back in February when we showed you Sony's aptly-named TP1 Living Room PC? Well Sony has finally gotten around to releasing it, and they really didn't make a big deal about it.
If you want a laptop with built-in HD and a Blu-Ray drive then your options are pretty limited, and you're generally looking at something highly wallet-draining. Crunchgear's Seth Porges has been playing with one such machine: the $2,000 Sony VAIO LZ180, which fills a crisp-edged case with Intel's 2GHz Core 2 Duo T7300 CPU, a 15-inch Xbrite display running off an NVidia GeForce 8400 GT, and a 200GB hard-drive to store all that lovely media.
Something tells me that if you bit into this VAIO CR laptop you'd find a striking aftertaste of Apple. There's certainly no avoiding where Sony got the design prompt for its latest notebook range from, but since the tech product world is full of mimicry, emulation and tribute it's easier to ignore it and look at how well the CR stacks up. NotebookReview have done just that.
Sony keeps their tradition on making sexy laptops. VAIO CR is no different, it has an eye-catching chassis with glossy finish and silver trimed frame. It’s available in several colors; sangria, cosmopolitan, dove, indigo, and matte black.
