Low end FJ
Sony released a low end edition of FJ series. This was much cheaper and available from US$800, but it didn't include a built in camera, and used Intel Celeron (1.60 GHz) processor instead of the more powerful Centrino CPU (1.90 or 2.33 GHz). It also included a 60GB hard drive instead of the usual 100GB. This model sold well in the Asian market.
The FJ series was first targeted as a home/work computer as the FJ190 but the FJ270/370 which was the most powerful edition was for home/work/student computer the FJ290 which had inferior specifications was the "colors" computer because it was available in five color which were later expanded to 9 colors when VAIO 10th anniversary special edition appeared in Japan the FJ series called F light is available in different colors than in America and was TV capable using Windows Media Center. F light series are starting to be replaced by the C series like in America.
