Sony Reveals VAIO Z Ultraportable: Big Brains, Big Price Tag
But we'll get to that in a moment. The Power Media Dock is unlike anything we've seen to date, offering quad-video monitor support, AMD Radeon HD graphics, an optical disc drive and an HDMI output. At just below 1.2kg and 16.65mm slim, it's definitely one of the trimmer machines on the market. It also features a special 'sheet battery' that provides up to seven hours of computing, and there's an HD webcam (powered by Exmor) that tends to perform well in low-light.
What's wild is that Sony cannot use the Thunderbolt term. They have to call out a USB-esque port with Light Peak technology, but it's all the same. Furthermore, there's an external GPU option for those needing extra graphical power whenever you can afford to plug in. No wonder there's a $2200+ price tag!
