Sony has refreshed its Vaio series of computers in time for Spring, adding extra colours to some and upgrading the specs on others.

All Vaios will now be supplied with either Vista home Premium or Vista Business.

The C2 Series of brightly-coloured laptops now has a model called “rediscovery blue”, which is matched, of course with a desktop mouse and a special carrying bag from Mandarina Duck.

The SZ series for the business travel has added the SZ4 series, which weigh only 1.69kg, and boast two graphic chipsets for huge graphics power on the go.

The entertainment laptops in the FE40 series have been upgraded to Intel Core 2 Duo processors, and all come with Nvidia GeForce Go graphics and a dual lamp widescreen X-black LCD.

And finally, the large PC-TV fusion, the LA2 Series now comes with 2GB of memory as standard. It features a 19-inch widescreen as well as built-in digital/analogue TV tuner and a 200GB hard disk.
