Sony Vaio Prestige Spring Collection 2010 Launch

Sony has always mixed fashion, art, and technology with their products.  The reason why I love Sony laptops is because they are gadget candies and you’d feel proud carrying one.  Not only do Sony produce laptops with all the eye-Candy designs, their laptops also ooze the right quality you’d need for a computer and thus, emphasizing the Prestige it gives to us – where performance is always in mind.

I also like the fact that Sony is also committed to producing more products that are eco-friendly.  As much as possible, they make their operations and production less harmful to the environment as possible.

The Launch

The setting of the event was perfect for an intimate discussion where you can choose to go around and tinker around the products being launched.  I had my hands busy testing some of the products on display and you can never go wrong with speed.  I also love that most of the products are light-weight, which is very attractive to me, since I hate carrying heavy laptops.

The Sony Viao W (starts at P24,999)

Showing compassion for Mother Earth – Sony Viao goes green.

W series

This series is a winner in FlairCandy’s heart.  You know how green minded I am and how I love the environment.  Going green is one of Flair Candy’s personal advocacies.  Anyway, I really appreciate the initiative of Sony to start considering the environment in their operations.

Sony Philippines unveils the new VAIO W Series, which features a number of environmentally friendly elements in its design, production and packaging.  The VAIO W’s top cover, palm rest, and bottom cover contains approximately 20% reprocessed plastic made from DVD and CD waste. By using the recycled plastic parts, carbon dioxide emissions within the production process are reduced by approximately 10% compared to using regular plastic.

This series isn’t pricey as well!  Another winner points go to the packaging of this model.  You will receive this notebook in a carrying bag instead of the traditional cardboard box packaging.  The unique styling (as you can see in the pictures) are very eco-friendly as the brown exterior fabric is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles (PET) material.
