Sony Thinks Pink In The Name of Cancer Prevention

There's a rift between pink gadget lovers and haters. Most of us hate when manufacturers use rosy hues in a lame, 18th Century attempt at attracting attention from females, but then again, some pink gadgets are just plain cute.

Pink also happens to be the color of Breast Cancer Awareness and as the official Breast Cancer Awareness Month approaches, retailers across the country, including Sony VAIO, are joining the fight to find a cure for breast cancer by creating special editions of some of their bestselling products.

This October, Sony VAIO will donate $100,000 from the proceeds of a limited time Sony VAIO pink bundle that includes a VAIO Pink CR Series notebook accompanied by a pink mouse and pink carrying case. The laptop is $1,250 and is available on SonyStyle.com and Sony Style stores. It also happens to be the same computer Daniel Craig used as James Bond in Casino Royale. Of course, his was a little more camouflaged.

i was actually going to buy this before deciding to go with a new macbook. i saw this in person at the sony store at to be quite honest, the keys seem a little cheap. and the price isn't $1250. it's about $1500 at the sony store, but you can get it for $1350 at best buy, circuit city, office depot, etc. if you want something closer to its specs, go with a new macbook. but i do like the fact that it's for a good cause. can never go wrong with that : )

I wouldn't get it simply because I don't like pink gadgets (not the biggest sony fan either actually). it is a nice idea though.

if i was in the market for a new laptop i would definitely consider it, its cute and it goes for charity, who could ask for more

I already have s VAIO that I love. I would definitely buy this one. Not only do I think its cute (not too bright and not too boring) but I'm a huge supporter of Breast Cancer. I only wish they were giving more than just $100,000. I guess something is better than nothing!

Considering how much Sony makes in profits and how much scientific research costs, $100,000 for breast cancer is nothing.
