"Sony has launched the VAIO Holiday 2010 Signature Collection laptops."
Sony's 2010 Holiday Signature Collection has arrived. Starting with an 8-inch VAIO P mini-laptop in black or pink crocodile casing for $999, up to a 13.1-inch Glossy Premium Carbon VAIO Z at $4699 (and in limited production), there are several models in-between to fill the gaps. Sony is going the Vertu route this holiday season, adding some fashion to their products.
I do like the premium carbon VAIO Z model ( link ) shown above, configured out-of-the-box with a Core i7 processor, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, 13.1-inch backlit LED display at 192-x1080, backlit keyboard, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, and NVIDIA 1GB VRAM Hybrid graphics card. At 3.04-pounds with standard battery installed (large capacity battery optional), expect 6-7 hours of usage, or 9-10.5 hours with the upgraded battery. Not much missing in this beauty, but, if you'd like additional upgrades to push past the magic $5K mark: VAIO Z Series Docking Station, $200; Large Capacity Battery $250.
Price aside, is this perhaps the perfect laptop?
