    Sony online shops are country based. If you order it from the German site it can only be sent to a German address.

    Yeah I know, I've tried ordering from sony.co.uk over the years when the exchange rates were good and it wasn't possible. But I have family in Germany so it can be shipped to them. Lucky!

    2 or more.
    The old Z had 2, 3 or 4, depending on configuration.
    I think the new Z will only have 2, but there's no certainty.

    hhm according to notebookcheck.com the Sony Vaio SB has an average temperature of 31,5°C (hottest part 40°C) on the bottom side... the old Z is about 29,4°C (hottest part 39°C) so to me 45°C seems quite hot even for Sony. A toshiba portege R830 will only have 34°C on the hottest spot so other companies manage to get lower temps on their 13inch laptops.

    Are those temperatures under load?

    The model VPCZ21C5E was added to the European Sony Vaio support page. No downloads or manuals yet.

    I think you guys maybe talking about different things: Storm, I think you are speaking about the heat in degrees on the case (feel) while Crystal1988 is speaking about the actual CPU temp.

    I think.

    Lucky you. Have to order through the Dutch site which is 100 euro's :mad: more expensive then the German site. Still find it weird that with the same VAT in most european countries the prices for the base systems differ so much.

    I'm likely to get the preconfig VPCZ21L9E (i5/4GB/128GB SSD) model. Should have more than enough performance for me.

    The more and more I read about it through this forum, the more I want one.

    I'm not worried about the cooling - it can't be any worse than my current Macbook Pro, which gets incredibly hot when it runs a video call in Skype (for example). The battery time seems to be a non-issue aswell.

    The lack of a powerful graphics card inside is no big deal to make. If it moved the weight down, then I'm all for it.

    Having a 1.2kg, powerful laptop as a student sounds like a mouth-watering prospect. Can't wait! ;)
