The VAIO lineup has been updated with 2 new models, the CZ and TZ, and Hardware Zone was there to get some pictures and specs. The CZ is full sized, with a 14.1" screen and an Intel Core 2 Duo 1.80GHz on a PM965 Express based motherboard. It comes with some nice features, including a built in 1.3 megapixal camera in a 2.5kg package. The smaller TZ is only 1.5kg, but it still manages a 11.1" screen as well as Centrino C2D support on a Source: Hardware Zone
