Sony has added a cool new feature to some of its notebooks in the Vaio Z and Y series. The new feature is called Share My Connection and it turns the notebooks into WiFi hotspots. The notebook can then be used as a hotspot by up to five other notebooks.

The connection can also be shared with smartphones, cameras, and other devices. Sony does say a subscription is required; presumably, they mean a mobile broadband subscription.

The Z model Vaio machines are smaller 13.1-inch notebooks weighing about 3 pounds and made from carbon fiber and aluminum. The Y series are 13.3-inch machines that are offered in multiple colors and are only 1.2-inches thick. Prices for the machines with the hotspot feature start at $770 for the Y series and $1950 for the Z series.
