Sony VAIO Z, FW, SR, BZ

Sony VAIO Z, FW, SR, BZSony finally made its new laptop line official after all the picture leaks and specs speculations that were floating around the net have pretty much made it yesterday’s news. There are a total of 4 series that completes the new family, the Z, FW, SR, and BZ. Below are the excerpts from their press release:

The VAIO Z Series notebooks weighs just over 3 pounds, and it model incorporates a vivid 13.1-inch widescreen display with Sony’s own XBRITE-DuraView LCD technology for scratch-resistant durability and 100 percent color saturation. Select models feature a high-resolution 1600 X 900 widescreen display, providing a 40 percent wider workspace than a standard display within the same “footprint” — so the view increases while the notebook’s size does not. This makes it easier to view multiple documents or lengthy spreadsheets on a single screen.

The VAIO FW notebook comes in multiple configurations, including a premium and a standard model. The premium model plays Blu-ray Disc high-definition content like movies in full 1080 HD resolution when connected to a compatible HDTV. It can also record, store and play back personal content on high-capacity BD media. Weighing a little over six pounds, the FW notebook features the world’s first 16.4-inch display, which combines the benefits of a slightly larger17-inch widescreen with the smaller “footprint” of a 15.4-inch model.

The VAIO SR is a dream come true for the consumer who won’t compromise profound processing power for jaw-dropping style, said Mike Abary, senior vice president of VAIO product marketing for Sony Electronics. “It meets the needs of everyday work and play while delivering the freedom, performance and style consumers crave.” Weighing just over four pounds, the SR notebook boasts a 13.3-inch LED backlit widescreen display and Sony’s patented XBRITE-ECO LCD technology for clear, crisp images that truly “pop” off the screen.

The VAIO BZ notebook boasts a spacious 15.4-inch widescreen display and full-size keyboard while weighing less than six pounds. An optional anti-glare screen featuring Sony’s patented XBRITE-ECO LCD technology provides a crystal-clear picture. The PC is housed in a durable magnesium alloy casing to endure the knocks, bumps and accidents common to frequent travel. It also incorporates G-Sensor Shock Protection technology to counteract sudden movements helping to prevent damage and data loss.

The BZ and FW would cost around 1 grand, the SR will be near the grand and half mark, the FW will be around $1,800, and the Z can cost as much as $2,300 with the dual SSD option. And Sony did not give you a lot of time to save up for the lappies as they are available at the end of this month or early next month.
