The ultra premium Sony VAIO Z128GX features an Nvidia GeForce 300 GPU, and a 1,600×900-pixel resolution for the 13-inch display. The make is of brushed metal and gives a feeling of sturdiness. The 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 M520 processor coupled with the Nvidia GPU is a powerful combination for all but the most demanding programs. A possible flaw would be the manual graphics switching instead of the Optimus enabled software switch. The VAIO Z series has the standard set of ports and connections for a laptop of this size only lacking a Blue-Ray drive. Overall is an enviable status symbol with a powerful performance but high price.
