    The VAIO FE Series has an impressive, ultra-sleek design, and is built with state-of-the-art technology including 11th Gen Intel Core Processors, Microsoft Windows 11, and THX Spatial Audio to provide...

    Came here for this. I thought VAIO was a dead brand many years ago.

    I had a VAIO Z-series back in the day. They were pretty decent ultra-portable business laptops, even though I don't recall them being marketed as such. It was surprisingly well built and lasted me several years before I went the Macbook Air + iPad route.

    Is not Sony, Vaio was sold to Japan Industrial Partners in 2014. Sony still have a minority share on it. Always loved their laptops, but were expensive back then unfortunately and out of reach of my pocket.

    Problem is, there will be limited numbers for sale at a time and might be restricted solely to NVidia.com.
    Demand is sure to be high!

    Viao has Intel XE Graphics. What does that have to do with Nvidia?

    I still have my Vaio FW. 10 years old now and still kicking, though I have done a lot of work to it. Upgraded the motherboard (and integrated GPU) maxed out the RAM, put the 2nd most powerful chip the socket could take into it (I figured the cooling couldn't handle a Q series quad core chip), installed a SSD and Win 10. Battery is essentially dead, the hinges/power button/ power socket on the chassis was fixed, and the fan has been replaced twice.

    I definitely wouldn't call it the easiest laptop to work on by a long shot. Still chugs along fine for a workshop PC, so not bad for a 12~year old laptop. Funnily, its still faster than the cheap Dell that my mother got 2 years ago
