Ah... Sony doesn't make laptops anymore. Also, the company that bought that division pulled back to JDM. I'm surprised to see this for sale here.

I rather pay $200 more for this than the recent Lavie deals. That's for sure.

Not sure why it's so cheap. It's not current gen skylake but it is full quad core cpu with iris graphics. Definitely worth it for professionals that need more power.

It's not unusually cheap. Remember the last great Sony Z from 2010/2011. Microsoft store sold it for $1000 too when it was a $2000 machine.

This one, while still great, still doesn't match up to legend that is the Z11. Here's a review.

Wonderful deal! Thank you! Hope it will ship!

Check this review [mobiletechreview.com]to get better understanding how good is this machine.

Word of caution - go with 512/1TB models. Those are using 512GB PCIe SSDs (1TB has two of them in the RAID) as the opposite to regular SSD in 256GB model.

ugh, so much bezel - aesthetically unpleasing no matter how good the internals.

Dang it. I thought this was the Vaio Z Flip for a second. As much as I love the Canvas, it just doesn't fit my uses as well as the Flip. I don't need either as my Vaio Flip 15 and Surface Pro 3 are still going strong but I would have jumped unquestionably on a Vaio Z Flip.

Holy cow. This is an insane device, almost on par with a Surface Book? Just sucks that the tablet can't dock with the keyboard. I can't imagine how this can be used in places where you're moving, such as while being in a bus.

I've also often wondered if it's possible to change the batteries on these things after 2-3 years down the road.

Nonetheless, looking at Mobiletechreview's thoughts on this device, I have to say that if I was in the market for one of these devices, this would definitely be the one to get. Sure it's fugly, but damn if the engineering isn't awesome on this.

This is very different from Surface Book. You get pretty much desktop power in the small form factor. CPU here is almost two times more powerful than in Surface Book according to PassMark (8970 vs. 4749). You'll also get better display and connectivity.Trading in battery life, of course.

I am very heavy virtualization user and this device can finally replace my desktop and provide me enough portability to travel and convenience of having the one device.

It has a better cpu than any surface device and has a wide color gamut panel. This is about the ultimate portable graphic design machine. It's a niche device but it's the best available at it's niche.
