At the office I have the dock, USB hub, and 3 monitors (2 connected to the dock and for the 3rd one I need to connect a HDMI cable). All I need to do is to connect 2 cables and I am set.
Fast: The machine is fast to boot and to resume (my previous Dell Lattitude was a nightmare), handles all my programs as fast as my quadcore desktop (including video and photoshop). Disclaimer: I do not play games. The noise cancelling headphones are great (light and it works).
Light: My arthrits thank me daily.
Battery: I got the slice battery, but I have not needed yet. I am getting at least 5-6 hours from the main battery.
Backlight: is much less intrusive than Dell.
Display: reflections are very well controlled.
Attention: it calls much less attention than other thin & lights (it does not "look" as thin or light)
Noise: I was afraid of the reviews stating that the fan makes the sound of an airplane taking off. It is true, but in my use it never happened with my usual work, including watching/streaming movies. It did happen once while I was making/burning a movie using an USB 3.0 BluRay burner (not the dock). The dock fan/drive is somewhat noticeable.
Speakers: Useless. My Ipad have better speakers. I carry a mini usb soundbar.
Graphics: I have not been able to convince the laptop to recognize my touchscreens as separate units yet (if I touch the 2nd or the 3rd monitor, it thinks I touched the first monitor).Read more ›
However, when I first saw the Vaio Z2 in ads in Hong Kong, the design immediately caught my attention. I quickly researched the specs when I got back to my hotel room and found it to be the exact laptop I was looking for - Light and slim, powerful, adaptable, strong battery (14hours with the sheet battery), tough design, USB3. I quickly purchased one in Singapore and have not looked back since. I simply loved the laptop.
There are however cons as well. The Keyboard keys are very responsive but feels low (this is unavoidable from a design perspective). The trackpad and mouse was at first originally horrible, however with the latest vaio update, it is now responsive and easier to use. The exorbitant price is painful. I believe for the price we should have received the sheet battery, bluray burner, more SSD space, and windows ultimate instead of premium.
The powerdock is a good and bad thing for me. On one hand having to carry another brick is annoying when I travel. On the other hand, if you think of it as an ultra portable laptop with a high end mobile GPU, it sits far better than any other laptop out there. Also the powerdock allows for great future possibilities. Being able to upgrade the powerdock in the future is very viable.Read more ›
VERY light chassis that almost feels "hollow"
Incredibly powerful - enough to drive GTA4 at 1080p and high res
PMD highly useful, and looks great on desk
Screen with beautiful colors and great resolution
Battery life enough to support more than 5 hours of normal usage under a balanced scheme and 7 under power saver mode
Overall build quality is fine but sort of fragile, doesn't seem like it could withstand a fall
Keyboard far too shallow to provide enough travel for intense typing or gaming
Trackpad too small and the response is sort of awkward.
Speaker quality is plain bad.
PMD makes configurations and driver installation far more difficult than it needs to be.
Great for business, rips through most any software you'll ever need portable, decodes tak files at an impossibly fast speed, but if you want this for gaming I would advise a separate mouse and keyboard.
Now, the flip side, the portability comes at a price. The speakers are almost non tolerable, easy fix, I recommend a $30 single capsule speaker, Amazon carries the x-mini which works just fine. The next sacrifice you'll make by choosing this machine is the shortage of USB ports, for some this is not a deal breaker.Read more ›
