A brief update: The first flip-flops, ehm multi-flips are listed in some German shops (however with unknown delivery date); pricing seems to match Sony's announcement. Sony site says that pre-orders (configurable) start on October 1. Seems that the CPUs are maxed at i5-4200u and i7-4500u (high-res) and the 735m is only an option for the 15" model (just checked the benchmarks for this one, yuck, glad I only play SC2 occasionally). One site says that the total weight is 2.5 kg (approx. 5 pounds) for the 15" version (however no weight data confirmed from Sony yet). 14" won't be available in Germany, but an 11" version is scheduled for the beginning of 2014. So far I have yet no info on the hard drive part (2.5" SATA only?; how is the pseudo-Fusion 1TB HDD plus 16 GB SSD implemented?). Also I fear that the modular external batteries/docking stations won't work (no holes/connectors on the bottom). Apart from that I only found useless new "previews" on the machine. Stay tuned. ----- Edit: I saw some other weight data, 1.2 kg (13"), 1.8 kg (14") and 2.0 kg (15").
