Yes, it's a new-but-not-really Sony notebook, the upgraded VAIO C series with chic and totally superfluous new colors like "espresso black, shell white, coral pink, summer sky blue, urban grey and fresh green," probably chosen by Hello Kitty and the Teen Girl Squad while on tour in Japan, where they will be available in April.

Thankfully, there's more than colors in the air and they have refreshed processors too, starting with the Celeron M 430 at 1.73 GHz and reaching up to the 2.16 GHz Core 2 Duo T7400. Sadly, the new versions have the same 1.280 x 800 pixels 13.3-inch display, although this time the top of the line is powered by the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400 card instead of the previous (and lame) Intel GMA 950 chipset. And of course, they all come with yet another license of Windows Vista Home Premium, so Steve can get his cake and eat it too.
