[Eng]Sony VAIO Z21 Series mentioned on various European sites.

Here in the states, Sony's 13-inch VAIO Z series has been missing from the company's online store for months, but in Europe, at least, it lives on -- a quartet of Z21 series laptops have surfaced on various e-tailers as the possible successor to last year's Z11. So far, we're seeing a pair of configurations with a Core i5-2410M processor and a 128GB solid-state drive and two more with a Core i7-2620M CPU and 256GB SSD. Judging by this sample, at least, 1600 x 900 resolution is standard, as is a backlit keyboard, 3G SIM card slot, fingerprint reader, 3D output, and an HD webcam with Sony's Exmor imaging technology. Alas, the available specs suggest Thunderbolt's a no-show, though rumor has it Sony's implementation of Intel's Light Peak technology will use USB connectors, of which this has three. Here's to wishful thinking, right?

The peculiar thing is, you can't actually buy it yet. F2F lists staggering prices ranging from €1,809 ($2,642) to €2,839 ($4,146), though it's not, in fact, available. Meanwhile, search results turn up mentions on staticICE UK and Belgium's Execute, but they've been scrubbed from the actual pages. So, it looks like it's up to Sony to announce this thing already -- and dish up some pictures while it's at it.

Someone needs to be kicked in the face if any of the prices are correct. A dual core and 900p for 2600 is ridiculous.

I don't see the point of this over a Vaio S. The new S series laptops weigh <4 pounds, have an AMD 6630M, i5 or i7, 13" 1600x900 screen, Bluray etc. for like $1300.

2.6k better be for a 2600k.

In reality, the US and EU prices will be around the same. Expect it to be a lot less than $2600.

This. You can't simply plug in the conversion rate due to the higher cost that Europeans have to pay. So expect the base model around $1,800, give or take a little.

I'm kind of interested in knowing if its the quad SSD we are hearing about or if they are just going with one SSD.
