Sony has a new small-size (or ultra-portable) notebook on the market – the TZ-Series – with a case constructed using carbon fibre re-enforcement technology, to protect from bumps and accidents when you’re out and about.
It’s also a stylish little thing – thin and with a minimalist ‘full flat’ design, along with a keyboard that is “inspired by the submerged stones of a Japanese water garden”. If such a thing is familiar to you. It also packs in a small Motion Eye webcam within the 4mm thick lid and an 11.1-inch WXGA (1366 x 768) screen with true 16:9 aspect ratio.
Inside there’s an Intel Core 2 Duo Ultra-Low Voltage CPU backed by 2GB DDR2 SDRAM, up to 100GB of storage and an integrated DVD±R/RW RAM optical drive. There’s also Instant On for watching DVDs without booting Windows Vista, dedicated AV controls, security via fingerprint recognition, Sony G-Sensor Hard Disk Shock Protection and all the expected connectivity.
