Sony VAIO Z Series- Bringing Sexy Back
Sony’s all-new laptop reminds us what we know and love about laptops- their sleek and slender nature, coupled with high performacne. The 13.1″ VAIO Z features Intel’s Light Peak technology, being the first non-Apple device to do so.
Powered by an AMD Radeon HD 6650M graphics card, it has the standard HDMI and VGA out as well as an optical drive that plays the latest Blu-Ray videos. The laptop itself weighs in at 3 pounds and features a blazing fast Intel Core i7-2620M processor, clocked at 2.7GHz with 8GB of DDR3 RAM.
Users will be able to transfer their data files onto the 256GB flash storage and view the progress bar ona gorgeous 1600 x 900 pixel display. Not sure on the battery life, but I’d guess it would be around 4-5 hours of normal use.
Of course, you could always by a sheet battery that extends life further by another seven hours. As you can imagine all these specs and design come at a high price, a price that will make you think you are paying for a top-of-the-line MacBook Pro.
Prices start around $2,000 US and can go well over $8,000 if you maximize the options on it, ouch! With those price figures in mind, you may end up just building your own desktop computer and purchasing a $500 tablet for on-the-fly computing.
