An external graphics solution comes in the form of a Radeon HD 6650M Therefore, the memory holds up to eight gigabytes of data.
The Z-Series has always been uncompromising variant under the notebook at Sony - and this model offers no exception, the two SSDs in RAID arrays provide a fabulous performance in reading and writing of data, which adds a
