Z Series

If the all-singing, all-dancing F series is a little too extreme, Sony's sexy-looking Y series might tickle your fancy.

Weighing under 2kg, the 13.3in portable makes use of Intel's Arrandale platform and offers a choice of Core i3 or Core i5 processors coupled with up to 4GB of DDR3 memory and both integrated Intel graphics and a discrete NVIDIA GeForce 310M GPU. Users can, of course, switch between integrated and discrete as and when needed.

A useful specification for this form factor, but it's Sony's sleek design that helps the VAIO Z series stand out from the crowd.

The system is incredibly thin, and its magnesium alloy chassis makes it notably light, too. We're not too sure about the green-lit cylindrical hinge, though, and the $1,899 price tag positions it above most of the competition.

Those pictures are not of the Y-series. Or even the S-series. The Y-series (and probably S-series too) has PageUp/PageDown/Home/End keys on the right and doesn't sport a fingerprint reader.

That triangular button on the top left (performance or power-saving graphics mode) would point towards a new Z-series model.
