Sony VAIO TZ at Dynamism
Although still officially limited to Japan, Sony's new TZ-series ultraportable has already become available through Dynamism, the well-known cross-Pacific reseller. The single TZ90 on offer represents Sony's fastest model with a 1.2GHz ultra-low voltage Core 2 Duo, 1GB of RAM, and the choice of either a 32GB solid-state hard drive, a 160GB magnetic drive, or a mixture of the two that replaces the system's internal DVD rewriter. An English version of Windows Vista Home Premium is already installed along with the relevant manual, according to Dynamism.
Pricing varies based on configuration, but starts at $2,299 with only the 160GB hard drive in place of the DVD-RW optical storage and peaks at $2,999 for a version with both the DVD hardware as well as the 32GB flash disk. Every system is set to ship on May 26th and comes with a three-year warranty that replaces Sony Japan's official service plan. [via Crave]
