Anonymous tipsters have informed Engadget that Sony's revamped VAIO Z will house four solid-state drives
-- though there is some ambiguity. According to the material presented to Engadget, there will be "SSD RAID0:64GB/128GB x 4".
At first glance, that suggests there may be four 64GB or 128GB drives for a total storage of 256GB or 512GB. However, Engadget notes it could be interpreted as four flash drives totaling 64GB or 128GB or perhaps something similar to PhotoFast's GMonster Quad SSD
, which can contain four CF memory cards.
We will have to wait until Sony comes forward with details on the supposed quad-SSD configuration, but sources also indicate that the forthcoming VAIO Z unit(s) will be the first in the series to feature a backlit keyboard, and that's less far-fetched.
