    I've seen the Golden SR, it looked so okay btw. google it to see how it looks, though IMOH gold on Z will be somehow ladish! I might be mistaken though, its different tastes.

    I have the prem carbon, and it really looks like a $3000 notebook
    Yes, the premium carbon with the gun metal grey makes it look really expensive, in a very understated sort of way. I like the fact that it doesnt attract a lot of attention.
    A golden laptop just screams rob me!

    Is the i5 540m processor sufficient for AutoCAD?

    Hey did Sony ever release a smaller power adapter? I feel like the one that comes with is pretty big and unwieldly.

    There is a smaller version of the Z adapter yes. Don't know the exact number, but it's on the sonystyle website.

    For USA See -> VGP-AC19V30 | AC Adapter | Sony | Sony Style USA

    I think it's on most other sonystyles aswell.

    the long-held view is this 'stick' isn't much of an improvement in portability or usability

    another strange sony decision...

    Is the adapter that comes with the Z12 not the stick adapter? I was going to buy an extra but I wanted to wait and see which one came with the laptop first. Fortunately, there is a SonyStyle store nearby and they usually have these in stock.

    I know I've seen it asked a few times before where the CTO models were made. I purchased a CTO with the Full HD (1920x1080) screen and it shipped yesterday from Narita, Japan with a scheduled arrival date of early next week. It was "being built" for about 5 days, but two of those were the weekend. I can't say just how happy I am that it is shipping via FedEx and not UPS.

    Both the i5 and i7 are FAST FAST.
    Just a few mhz difference in stock and turbo boost speed, MB of cache is a bit lower, but they are plenty fast.

    Hi,

    I've got a strange issue on my Z12 (VPCZ12C5E). When I'm in Stamina mode (with the Intel GPU), I have some randomly but frequently freeze of the machine during 10 to 30s. Nothing seems to respond, the system litteraly freezes. The issue doesn't seem to appear in Speed mode with the nVidia GPU.

    Has anybody already faced this issue? Is this a driver/software or hardware issue? Any idea of a possible fix?

    By the way, I was wondering if someone found a way to update the nVidia drivers? If so, does it break the magic button Speed/Stamina/Auto?

    Thanks for your help!

    David

    @BDM: No the Z comes with an power ''brick''. It's just like an few cm smaller than the F version i guess. (roughly estimated)

    @davrous
    You can do a minor update to 189.92 (which is on the forums here). And 189.99 is (99% working, still in beta). but no you can't install the ones from nvidia since the switching will break.
