Sony readying upgrade to VAIO FZ notebooks

Sony VAIO FZ2

Sony is already set to release a feature boost for its 15.4-inch VAIO FZ notebook just a few months after its initial release. The company's B2B site shows two new models in the FZ2 series that would step up the performance and storage of the notebook beyond current models. An entry version, the FZ240, would be powered by Intel's relatively new Core 2 Duo T7250, which is clocked at the same 2GHz of today's T7300 but halves the cache from 4MB to 2MB similar to the 1.8GHz model it would replace. Storage on this and the faster, 2.2GHz FZ285 would also increase to 250GB, up from the 200GB of current systems.

Specifications would largely remain the same as for the premium and basic FZ1-series notebooks already on sale, as the FZ240 would continue to use a Intel X3100 graphics and a DVD burner where the FZ285 would draw on a GeForce 8400M GT with HDMI out and a Blu-Ray drive. Both systems would also come preloaded with an identical 2GB of RAM. Prices on the B2B pages are currently inaccurate and are expected to change with an official launch, which is expected soon for North America. [via Notebook Italia]
