Sony have been creating laptop computers now for as long as I can remember and their flagship range, the Z Series has been attracting the attention of aficionados for many years. Today we are looking at a fully specified Z Series system with Core i7, full 1080p 13.1 inch screen, 8 GB of DDR3 memory, Bluray drive, backlit keyboard, Raid SSD and power media dock with AMD HD6650 discrete graphics. This is only for the demanding enthusiast who desires a superportable machine, without making compromises.

When it comes to actually buying a laptop, I tend to opt for a superportable computer as I hate traveling with a heavy 17 inch machine. My current machine of choice is the IBM ThinkPad X1, as it delivers a bulletproof chassis, with class leading keyboard and nippy Core i5 processor. I also admire the 11 inch Macbook Air, it has a better screen than the ThinkPad X1, but feels a lot slower, with weaker battery life.

The review product today is more than twice the price of either of these systems, but has a seriously hardcore list of specifications. The VGPPRZ20A/B.CEK BluRay Power Dock adds £459.00 to the overall price, which brings the total to £2,336.99 inc vat.

Super slim and sexy. The customised Sony Series Z on the left is twice the price of our 11 inch Macbook Air
