What do Jennifer Lopez, Charlie's Angels, Dawson's Creek, robot pet AIBO, Trinitron, Playstation, Walkman, Discman and VAIO have in common? It's a Sony!
In Japan's thriving market for mobile systems, where up to 50% of all computers sold are portable, it's no surprise that a company like Sony, with its heritage in engineering, entered the computer business a long time ago. Sony desktops PCs and notebooks all carry the VAIO brand, and every segment of notebooks is covered in a special VAIO series. The VAIO C1VN is a single-spindle solution with a 1024x480 display that Sony created to enter the sub-notebook market (~1kg/2.2lbs).
The first C1 Picturebook X-Series used an Intel Pentium II 400MHz. In the V-Series this has been replaced with a Transmeta Crusoe TM5600 600MHz processor.
