Sony Ultra-light VAIO Z Series With External GPU Dock Coming Next Month


Weighing little over a kilogram and by using Intel "Light Peak" technology to pair with an external GPU, the new VAIO Z Series notebook PC from Sony is created for mobile professionals who demand absolute performance and portability.

The VAIO Z takes styling by Sony to new extremes, with a 'full flat' body and display lid that are crafted in light carbon fibre. At just below 1.2kg and 16.65mm slim, the new VAIO Z is very portable, it features a backlit keyboard with extra-wide palm rest and ergonomic new 'button-less' touchpad. The notebook is equipped with a 13.1" (33.2cm) 1600x900 VAIO Display Premium, which features an anti-reflective coating.

Latest-generation standard voltage Intel Core i7 processors are teamed with DDR3 SDRAM and up to 256GB SSD RAID storage to blaze through the workload with ease.

As an extra refinement, Quick Boot is loading Genuine Windows 7 Professional up to 50% quicker than conventional notebooks. Embedded VAIO 'everywair' 3G WWAN on selected models connects via mobile broadband operators.

The performance of VAIO Z Series is taken to new extremes by the Power Media Dock, a monolithic expansion module that links with VAIO via an optical cable. The proprietary port can also be used to attach regular USB devices to VAIO when it's not docked.

Featuring high-speed I/O data transfer based on the architecture codenamed 'Light Peak', Power Media Dock boosts graphics performance while adding numerous extra connectivity options. It includes an optical drive and comes supplied with a stand.

With Power Media Dock added, VAIO Z can manage up to four displays (including the notebook screen) via HDMI and/or VGA output ports. New-generation AMD Radeon HD graphics with 1GB VRAM handle demanding graphics tasks, from 3D CAD to gaming.

When docked, connectivity options are boosted by additional USB ports plus VGA and HDMI outputs. Power Media Dock also sports an optical drive bay that can be specified with a Blu-ray Disc or SuperMulti combo drive. Games and movies on DVD or Blu-ray Disc sound great with latest Dolby Home Theater v4.

VAIO Z features the 'sheet battery' already showcased on this year?s VAIO S Series. The notebook's internal lithium polymer battery provides power for up to 7 hours on-the-go computing. It?s partnered by a second thin, flat optional lithium polymer sheet battery that can be charged separately from the PC and added without removing the internal battery. The sheet battery attaches without having to switch off the PC, boosting stamina to up to 14 hours.

VAIO Z also includes an HD web camera powered by Exmor technology.

The new 2011 VAIO Z Series of notebook PCs will available in Europe starting from the end of July 2011.
