Sony leaks info on new Santa Rosa notebooks which will come packed with 2GB of memory

Sony is the latest to leak out its plans for Santa Rosa notebooks. The company has plans for five new model lineups ranging from the 11.1" VAIO TZ Series up to the 15.4" VAIO FZ Series. All notebooks with the exception of one TZ model come standard with Windows Vista and 2GB of DDR2 memory (a welcome addition for the memory-hungry operating system).

The 11.1" TZ Series notebooks will feature ULV processors (U7500 and U7600). The entry-level VGNTZ11MN/N features a U7500 processor, 80GB hard drive, dual-layer DVD burner, 1GB of memory, integrated webcam, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and 802.11a/b/g wireless. The VGNTZ11XN/B ups the ante with a 100GB hard drive, 2GB of memory and a fingerprint scanner. The VGNTZ11VN/X sits at the top of the food chain with a U7600 processor and a carbon fiber LCD lid. According to Engadget, the notebooks are rated at 9 hours of battery life -- we'll just have to see if that number holds up once models start hitting our shores.

The 15.4" FZ Series notebooks will use Intel Core 2 Duo T7100 and T7300 processors while storage options will range from 120GB to 200GB. The top-of-the-line VGNFZ11Z will feature the aforementioned 200GB hard drive, Blu-ray burner, integrated "Motion Eye" camera and will run Windows Vista Business.

Other new notebooks lines include the 13.3" VAIO SZ5 Series, 13.3" VAIO CZ Series and 14.1" VAIO CR Series.

There is no pricing available for any of the notebooks mentioned, but all of them are due to be released in July.
