The VAIO Z Series VPCZ122GX is one of Sony's mid-priced laptops offerings, made for everyday use. The Intel Core i5-520M processor is 2.40GHz to start, but it is equipped with Turbo Boost (a feature that speeds up the processor when extra performance is needed), which brings it up to 2.93GHz. As is common with Sony's mid-priced laptops, the VPCZ122GX comes with Genuine Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium and Microsoft Office Starter 2010 pre-installed. Sony promotes the NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M GPU graphics card (w/ Intel HD Graphics and 1GB of dedicated video RAM) as being able to handle virtually any graphics requirement. At 3.04 lbs., the VPCZ122GX is lightweight, though not as lightweight as other Sony VAIO laptops, which can weigh under two pounds. The Sony VAIO Z Series VPCZ122GX comes with a one year limited warranty.
