Sony VAIO Z Gets Refreshed, Multiple SSDs

The Sony VAIO Z is one of the most portable notebooks around with a svelte form weighing in at just over 3 pounds. Sony put a lot of power in that aluminum and carbon fiber frame to round out the offering. The Z is being refreshed in March, and Sony has an intriguing option of four SSDs to offer RAID for the user’s data to the cloud and back. No telling what quad SSDs might cost, but if you have to ask…

Expect two new models in March, both with a 13.1-inch display. The VAIO VPCZ11Z9E and VAIO VPCZ11X9E differ mainly in Core i7 processor speed and available RAM. The two models available for ordering have either 128 or 256 GB SSDs in the basic configuration, as the Z series offers no models with conventional hard drives. The cheaper of the two will reportedly start at around $1,000, which is not too shabby given everything the VAIO Z brings to the gear bag. If that price holds true, it is a big drop from the current VAIO Z that Sony sells.
