Sony VAIO BZ Detailed Leak

A series of leaks of Sony VAIO updates has wound to a conclusion on Friday with the appearance of the VAIO BZ. The 15.4-inch pro system shifts to a new 1440x900, LED-backlit display which both produces a better picture, reduces the power draw, and more eco-friendly; like other recent leaks, both systems are also based on Intel's imminent Centrino 2 platform and will come with faster GMA X4500HD integrated graphics than the outgoing BX models.

At least two models are expected: a simpler BZ11XN model provides a 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo, 3GB of memory, and a 200GB, 5,400RPM hard drive. A more advanced BZ11VN edition speeds up with a 2.4GHz processor, 4GB of RAM, and a quicker-loading 7,200RPM hard drive with the same space.

Sony hasn't supplied clues as to the BZ series' release date but may not release the thin-and-light notebook until the launch of all chipsets for Centrino 2, which isn't anticipated until early August.

    Intel Defective Graphics?

    Does anyone know if this includes the awful Intel graphics that are underpowered to play modern games, incompatible with many games, and do not offload HD video? Sound like I have a chip on my shoulder? I do. My Intel laptop with Intel graphics with Vista worked awful and there is nothing I can do about it. I can't add a graphics card. I am stuck.
