I remember only a few things...it won best design of the year for a laptop, over the macbook pro, in some design magazine like ID...it comes in this nice box and when you open it, it is in a red velvet bag or something like that.
It's over 2000 bucks and carbon fiber design.
Anyone know what this laptop is?

They do if you try hard enough.
(I think it does anyway)

Besides, lots of notebooks rival the mac book. For a much lower price too.

I wonder if anyone has an X or Z series Sony Vaio who cares to comment on what it's like to live with?

Several things put me off. For starters, the GPS function is only available in the US/Canada. Grrrrrr!~!!!!!

The Verizon Wireless connection is also only available in the US and Canada. Double grrrrrr!!!!

Otherwise, it looks like one fantastic little computer. The X Series notebook being around $1500 or so, which is cheaper than a Macbook Air (grossly overpriced and underpowered).

Still sitting on the fence on this one. Realising that Adobe Creative Suite is going to screw me with a 1 licence per computer option, I won't be able to run the same program on my desktop iMac and my (future upgraded) laptop simultaneously. A serious push back towards using Windows again (if only I wasn't so thick, I could use Linux )

the X series has netbook processor, Z series is far more powerful in the CPU. Adobe CS will work better on the Z.

The Z looks just insanely good. $2k is just a lot to drop on a laptop these days.

You might also be thinking of the Envy 133? although thats really marketed toward the macbook air, not the pro.

The macbook pro looks much better than that sony that was linked, IMO. Just not so elegant. And the way they tried to make it look thinner by leaving the bottom part black makes the rest look like a bunch of hype. Just my opinion on the looks only.

+1 on the voodoo envy 133. ive been wanting to track one down and buy it but its been hard. its one of the sexiest laptops ever made. costs a little over $2k for the lower end 1.6ghz one and $2.5k for the higher end 1.8ghz ssd one.
