"The first laptops using the much-hyped Transmeta chips landed in the United States on Wednesday, and more are likely headed this way."

"Tokyo-based Sony is shipping its Vaio C1 PictureBook--a 1-inch thick, 2.2-pound machine based on the 600-MHz Transmeta TM5600 Crusoe chip--to the States, according to Sony's Web site. Until now, notebooks containing Transmeta's chips have been released in Japan only, and in limited numbers."

"The Vaio notebooks that arrived in the United States on Wednesday were released in Japan Oct. 6. At the time, Sony executives in the States said they would come to the United States Oct. 25. A Sony representative did not return calls seeking comment on how many of the notebooks are available for sale, but Sony's online store listed the model as available and shipping immediately."
