Sony’s latest Vaio laptop model, just announced for the Japanese market, breaks with the traditional form factor for portable computers and features a tiny ‘half-sized’ keyboard.
The Sony VAIO VGC-LJ25L laptop features a standard 15.4-inch wide LCD screen along with a strange-looking keyboard that the company claims will allow you to "use the laptop efficiently even in narrow spaces.”
Only in Japan
It makes sense, we figure, for Japanese city-dwellers who live in notoriously tiny apartments. Somewhat tellingly, Sony has not yet announced any plans to release the computer outside of its homeland.
Questions are also being raised as to the effectiveness of the screen-guarding value of such a small keyboard and the usefulness of such a laptop design for actually using on your LAP.
Sony’s new Vaio is set to retail for around $1,500.
