    Wow, didn't expect this!

    Is it really much more powerfull than the 9300m gs? I guess we gonna see a redesign here..how they manage to put a powerfull gpu in a such a small chassis? Can't wait for pics!

    there may not be much in terms of a redesign.. the dimensions are exactly the same as the current z.. though it weighs a bit less..

    shame.. i was hoping for something thinner.. the current z is a bit chunky..

    Great find exetlaios! +1

    I was waiting for this. I hope there is going to be an option for lower resolution like the Z. Curious about the battery life with stamina, and to see Sony changed the design. I don't think so, because if it was a redesign they would change the name as well. Like from SZ to Z.

    I think its a redesign. weight is down from 1490kg to 1410kg and it has 3 USB ports. The name changed from VGN-Z to VPC-Z.

    Indeed, great find :)

    Although the pricing you mention is not that of this new Z.

    The 1699 euros price is for the 'alternative', the Sony Vaio VGN-FW51ZF/H.

    edit:
    I'm also guessing it will be a redesign. There are pictures up of the CW refresh.

    ... 3 USB ports and no docking station port? That's not a Z then -- if it won't fit a Z docking station, it's not a Z.
    I suspect the external specs are incorrect and simply copied pasted from something else (like from the new Y model) by the Dutch site. So I wouldn't trust the weight either.
