  1. Sony's European branch has announced an update to its range of Vaio Z ultraportable laptops that will bring some seriously beefy specs to the same tiny and beautifully designed form factor. Two new models will be on offer starting March -- the VPC-Z11Z9E and VPC-Z11X9E -- with 2.66GHz and 2.4GHz Intel Core i7 processors, respectively, and Nvidia GeForce GT330M graphics capable of operating at full speed when needed or in "stamina mode" to scale down performance and save battery life -- possibly reverting to Intel's built-in graphics.

    Wow I'm amazed they managed to pack 4 SSDs into a 13in laptop! But I'm guessing the $1,900 base model only includes a normal HDD...
  3. Actually, the $1,900 will have the 128GB SSD.
