Hands On: Sony Debuts Vaio Z Series Laptop
 
 
 

Sony has unveiled what it claims is the most's sleekest 13-inch notebook computer - part of its new "Z" line of products.

In the 13-inch market, there's a lot of competition, as some of the most popular Macbook and Samsung computers fall in that range. But Sony is, of course, also happily sitting among the rest right now, and it's moving to increase its popularity among the bleeding edge consumers.

The new Vaio Z series has an AMD Radeon 6630M GPU and an amazing 256 GB of SSD storage, making it a blazing fast yet high-performing device.

Sony was in New York City this week to show off the Z series, along with the rest of the company's newest Vaio line additions, and we were there to get an up-close-and-personal look at the Z Series.

We ran through a couple game demoes and the experience was, as expected, top-notch. However, so is the price. For the unit we test drove, the retail cost will be $2,300. In a world where everyone keeps saying the $700 iPad is going to kill laptops, the Z Series certainly begs to differ.

In addition to the new "Z" gadget, we also took a look at what will be Sony's first 3D laptop. The company says it has a huge advantage over other 3D computers because Sony can bring its own advanced 3D technology to the experience, and, if you happen to own both a Sony 3D TV and a Sony 3D computer, you only need one pair of Sony 3D glasses.

Expect both the Z Series and the first rollout of Sony 3D laptops to hit stores later this year.
