Sony VAIO BX Santa Rosa

Sony's American editions of the next-generation VAIO BX have been revealed, courtesy of the business section of the company's website. The 14-inch, standard-ratio BX740 and 15.4-inch widescreen BX760 all use Intel's new processor platform with an 800MHz bus as well as improved GMA X3100 integrated graphics when not using dedicated video through AMD's Mobility Radeon HD 2300. Every model also ships with 802.11n Wi-Fi as well as a fingerprint reader for security; the BX740 alone, however, has the option of an internal EVDO adapter for connecting to Sprint's cellular Internet service.

Prices start at $1,149 (BX760) and $1,199 (BX740) for a base system with a 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo, the GMA X3100 graphics option, 1GB of memory, and an 80GB hard drive. Several extra trim levels, however, allow buyers to step up to as much as a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo with AMD's dedicated video, a full 2GB of memory, and a 160GB hard drive. Ship times are unknown as Sony asks buyers to speak with resellers rather than order from the company itself.
