Sony has been known for great laptops ever since they debuted the VAIO line. To this day, if you want great performance in a tiny package, VAIO notebooks are where you should look. Their smallest notebooks are called PictureBooks, and their new one is the C1MW. What makes the C1MW truly unique is its size coupled with just about every feature imaginable.

In a world where its trendy to have a sleek and slim system, the Sony VAIO C1MW Picturebook takes this to the extreme. If your PDA does not have the featured you want and your current laptop is too bulky, look no further.

All VAIO notebooks have that cool magnesium-alloy casing, and the C1MW is no exception. Its dark blue cover, with matching color keyboard, has the stylish look of all Sony products. The C1MW uses an 867MHz Crusoe CPU from Transmeta, for a balance of power and long battery life. It also comes with 256MB of DDR SDRAM, with room for up to 384MB of total system memory.

The display on the C1MW is an 8.9 inch LCD, with integrated swivel camera. The included 30GB Hard Drive and external CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drive will give you plenty of material to watch on the 1280×600 screen. Feeding the display is an ATi Mobility Radeon-M GPU, with 8MB of video memory.

With its integrated 10/100 Network Card, V.90 Modem, and 1394 support, you can use the Type II PC Card slot for more important things. At 1.2 in thick, and 2.2 lbs, it’s light and small enough to be taken anywhere. There are a plethora of optional accessories to make your experience with the C1MW picture book the best possible. These include a USB mouse and external speakers to a 2.4GHz or 5GHz wireless connectivity. When it’s released, you can expect the VAIO C1MW Picture Book to be around $2,000.
