Sony introduces Vaio Z and F laptops

Sony has a slew of notebooks in its line and the company is beefing up its offerings with the debut of some new models at CES. Among the new notebooks debuting at the show are the Vaio Z and Vaio F series machines. The Vaio Z is a very cool little ultraportable with a carbon fiber chassis.

The machine weighs only a bit more than three pounds and crams in a 13.1-inch LCD that is LED backlit and has 100% color saturation on some models. The machine can also be fitted with a Blu-ray drive that can write discs as well. Other features include dynamic hybrid graphics, optional 3G, 512GB SSD option and more.

The larger Vaio F notebook has a 16.4-inch LCD and option Blu-ray drive. It uses NVIDIA GeForce graphics and Sony Transfer Jet software for moving photos and video to and from the notebook. The notebook uses Intel Core i7 CPUs and more. The Z-series will ship in late spring starting at $1,900 with the F series available for pre-order today starting at $1000.
