Sony VAIO TZ Specs Leak
Even clearer photos and technical details of the VAIO TZ ultraportable have leaked courtesy of French retailer GrosBill (PDF). Confirming the pick of a 1.06GHz ULV Core 2 Duo, a DVD rewriter, and an integrated VGA camera, the new info also points to an exceptionally thin, MacBook-inspired design. LED backlighting slims down the shell to under 0.9 inches at its thinnest point, and the hinted-at radical keyboard change borrows Apple's trayless design to guard against spills.
Although GrosBill's product sheet makes no mentions of prices or its release date, but is still anticipated for a July launch window in Europe and similar release timing in North America. [via Notebook Review]
