Sony appears to be the latest company to rip Apple off according to a few released pictures of its VGN-N17L Vaio laptop. A quick glance reveals a similarity to the MacBook/MacBook Pro, which I'm sure Sony would just chalk up to coincidence. It has a 15.4-inch display and, uh, a keyboard. (Specs haven't been released, you see.) For now, we'll just have to settle for a few pictures of the laptop in action. There's a few more after the jump.

At least Sony decided to rip off a company with a decent design philosophy. Hopefully, they'll use someone else's batteries, though. Wouldn't want to see that family's fun ruined on the count of an explosion.
