Sony’s VAIO Z finally arrives in the US

Well, it’s about time! a couple of months ago Sony removed the VAIO Z from their site, and we’ve pretty much had to sit through blog leaks and rumors about the Vaio Z . No body really know when it was supposed to come out to the US, and everyone came up with their own dates. Well, Sony finally annouced that it would have the notebook available to pre-order at a semi-affordable price of $2,000. This new laptop weighs 2.5 pounds, thanks to it’s Aluminum and Carbon fiber components. You will be able to order it in two colors so that’s not that great but what did you expect? I’m sure later on they will offer different color options at an added price.

So, now to the tech news and what makes this computer so special. Well, this is Sony’s first laptop that relies on the Power of a Media Dock, it’s an external dock that houses an AMD Radeon HD 6650M Graphics card and a 1GB video memory card. Aside from that, you will also be able to use VGA and HDMI output, you’ll have three USB Ports, and a slot loading optical drive.

According to Sony, the battery is supposed to last up to eight hours, but if you use the external sheet battery, you will be able to extend the battery life to a maximum of 16 hours, so that’s not bad at all.

So a little about the specs:
It will run on a Core i5 and i7 processor, and you’ll have the option of having up to 512GB of storage. The screen comes in at a reasonable 13.1 inches with the resolution of 1600×900 or 1080p. You will also have 8GB of RAM! Lets hope that this computer is not a flop like some of the other Vaio Series.
