I spent $2,200 to get the new Sony Vaio Z12GN/B from VAIO ATMCOM store (local Sony dealer) at Ratu Plaza, Jakarta, and I thing I am the first customer of Z series in Indonesia, sure they called me as soon as this sleek, lightweight and powerful laptop arrived. Since Sony Unleashed the Z series back in July in the U.S., a month later I mentioned that I really want this laptop but i wonder when the Z will arrive in Indonesia. And a week later I realized that Sony has launched the Z series along with the SR and FW series at Grand Hyatt Hotel, Jakarta on 21st August 2008.
The Sony Vaio Z12GN/B comes with Windows Vista Business by default but it also packed with Windows XP SP2 CD installation in case we want to downgrade the OS. But unlike what it’s said that the Z series comes with 13.1″ LED backlit display (1600×900 resolution), my Z12 comes with 13.1 Wide (1600×900) TFT Color display, I wonder if these are the same specification or not, Sony please explain to me!
Be sure to create recovery discs immediately after your computer is ready for use because there are no recovery discs provided with the computer.
It’s strange note, why Sony doesn’t create one.
