Sony has launched two additions to its popular Vaio range of notebooks.

The SZ5 takes an HSDPA card, giving users wireless connectivity of up to 3.6Mbps. Sony has an agreement with T-Mobile for cellular connectivity. The SZ5 is based on Intel's Core 2 Duo chipset and comes fitted with a fingerprint reader for authentication. The model, which contains a hard disk of up to 200GB, is aimed at high-end business users, with a retail price of £1,899.

A second family of Vaio notebooks, the TZ series, comprises minimalist, lightweight PCs. Based on the previous Vaio TX series, the TZ family allows users to play DVDs and audio CDs without booting into Windows. The models contain 32GB SSD flash drives.

The casing and keyboard design of the TZ family were inspired by submerged stones in a Japanese water garden, Sony claims.

Prices range from £1,749 to £2,099.
