    Default Sony VAIO Z VPCZ1 - Unboxing Photos and Movie

    I'm really impatient.

    I picked up a VPCZ112GX/S from the Sony Style store this evening. I've taken a metric-sh*t ton of pictures that I'll be posting over multiple posts.

    I also have a video of the first-boot sequence that I'll try to upload this evening.

    System specifications are HERE. First one who asks what is in it, gets smacked

    I purchased this model primarily to evaluate the 128GB SSD. This configuration has two 64GB Samsung MMCRE28G drives configured in RAID0 (Stripe). I'll post a new thread on my findings this weekend, if somebody else doesn't beat me to the punch. I also have a VPCZ11FHX/XQ on order with the 512GB SSD.

    I DON'T HAVE MANY COMMENTS ON THE MACHINE AS I JUST FINISHED TAKING THE PICTURES BELOW. I will say that the previous generation Z charger works with the new Z. I haven't taken the new one out of the box.

    I also have a video of the first-boot sequence that I'll try to upload this evening. In addition, I did a video showing the duration from power-on to loading Windows with the RAID prompt enabled and disabled. This will go in the SSD thread.

    On to dumping tons of pics, enjoy.

    Wow. Thanks for taking the time & effort to post these photos for us.

    I love these new Sony VAIO packaging retail (pre-config) boxes. The VAIO CTO boxes used to come in a different "ugly" version for the U.S. market. I hope they change those U.S. CTO boxes to these lovely new boxes for all U.S. VAIO CTO orders.

    By the way, am I the only one to think that these silver VAIO Z notebook looks classier than the black ones?

    Meh, I've been through the "silver" fad of the late 90's early 2000's and am glad to see that black is back. Of course things seems to be starting to swing back to silver again. At least it's not gold.

    There's always a flaw in the system. Finding it is the fun part. Exposing it is the dangerous part. Utilizing it is the human part.
