Sony puts Crusoe in Vaio

The first product with the low-power Transmeta Crusoe processor, Sony Electronics' PictureBook laptop PC, will be released in October, Sony announced last week. The 1 watt, Intel-compatible Crusoe processor allows laptop batteries to last longer, a prospect consumers have been waiting for, said a Sony spokeswoman. At $US2300, the 2.2-pound Vaio CIVN PictureBook uses a Microsoft Windows Me Edition operating system, LCD, built-in digital camera, 128MB of RAM, a 12GB hard drive, integral v.90 56Kbps modem and USB port. The laptop uses a 600MHz Crusoe chip. Sony is looking at the new lineup for the Australian market, but at this point cannot confirm the features or pricing of the new models.
