    Given that sony have some amazing screens in laptops that are 3/5 years old, I'm incredibly disapointed.

    Curious to find out if the RJ45 connection is Gigabit or not? Although i believe that Sony have taken care to make this product 'robust' as they have mentioned, i cant help but wonder if as per that SONY is an over rated/priced product.

    Would take a Z series over one of these... 1080p screen in 13" form-factor is awesome, 720p is dull. Any mention of price?

    [e!] - Just looked and you can pick up an i5/8Gb/128Gb SSD/1080p Z-series for £1009 direct from Sony. Surely that would outclass this Ultrabook, and probably not be much (£100?) more expensive.

    In my experience, rebuilding Sony laptops (after a format) is a royal pain in the butt.

    The last 3 I've done have needed some Sony specific software to get screen brightness changes working. Even if they've stopped making them like this, I'll never advise anyone to buy a Sony laptop. Such a backwards way of implementing it.

    +1 on the poor screen comments. That resolution would be acceptable on a 11" screen but not on a (premium) 13" screen. 900 vertical pixels would be reasonable, 1080 preferred.
