I don't know why it's taken so long for computer or CE companies to splash some color into their products. I think the iPod Mini proved that people will pay for (and actually want) a different color chassis. Motorola is finally making a Pink and Blue RAZR, and now Sony has introduced a line of new Vaios, called the FJ series that come in five different colors. "Onyx Black, Pearl White, Sky Blue, Jade Green and Raspberry Red casings are accented by similar shades on the bezels and palm rests of each PC." These will all have 14.1-inch widescreen displays, Integrated Intel(R) Centrino(TM) mobile technology, a serial ATA hard drive and DDR2 memory. Also expect integrated 802.11b/g wireless LAN, onboard DVD+R double layer/DVD+/-RW drive, an i.LINK(R) (IEEE 1394) and two USB 2.0 ports as well as a Memory Stick(R) media slot. Of course, just to make things a little harder, you can only buy the Onyx Black in stores this month. For any other color, you'll have to go to sonystyle.com starting November.
