    I like how they bring back the old style VAIO (etched in with no insert) logo and making only the rim shine (not sure that's edited or if there is anything special there). It looks really nice with the brushed metal.

    I see, what is an ETA? april, may?

    I will have to check the FCC again, they have one more model, AK8PCG11312L but it could just be a variant of the 11.6 inch model.

    btw do you have any info on the one I posted? is it the Y series replacement?

    This one has nothing to do with Z series, more like C series successor. i know, it's lame. Sony better hurry up with the ultrabook, or they can kiss goodbye to their market share.

    i don't have any info on the 11" you posted. i remeber Y series used to have Intel version, so this could be the Y series ultrabook.

    I see, the one I posted has no optical drive, so either it is an ultrabook or something else.

    Interesting, any idea if this will be shipping with ivybridge or still sandy bridge?

    I am guessing the S series will not be receiving a design make over any time soon huh?

    i'm not sure about that. there are 4 USB ports, only 2 of them are USB3.0. Ivy bridge fully supports USB3.0, shouldn't they all be 3.0 if that's the case?

    Well, if we talk about some new series, not VPC-CA4 (refresh of current CA), this must be a principal upgrade, that is, Ivy Bridge on. C series is a budget-minded one, no surprise if we'll have the same ugly display and a couple of cheaper USB2.0. Yet there might have been another explanation: we all heard that Ivy shipments put on hold until June, and Sandy could be a temporary substitution in this case.
