As the sequel to my adventures with Sony’s 2011 camcorders and digital cameras, this installment is all VAIO. I got a chance to briefly play around with the new Z, C, and E series on the Sony Display at the MLB Fancave in New York. Unfortunately, the VAIOs were directly in front of the 7-foot tall braless Amazon woman DJ who insisted on cranking out stale David Guetta drivel at a volume level of 11. Also, time was tight, so the video above is a quick overview of what to expect from Sony’s new portable computing department for the Fall. Nevertheless, specifications for each VAIO family are listed below. If the Z, C, or E Series are below or beyond your budget, you can check out the L, F, and S Series VAIOs on Sony’s website.
