Anyone got one of these yet? Seem to be quite decently priced on amazon:
[ame=http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Walkman-NWZX1060B-X-32GB/dp/B001RTS5UK/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top]Sony Walkman NWZX1060B X Series with 32GB: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo[/ame]
Really tempted to get one, but interested to know if they play .avi or .mkv video files? Cant find any info anywhere.

bit the bullet and ordered one of these. The sony shop in town didnt have any in stock, and although could order in for me the RRP over here is $800, which is twice the price of the UK one! So ordered it from amazon. They wouldnt ship it here, I guess as my card is still registered in the UK, so cant wait for it to get sent on. Hopefully itll be decent. Just need to see if I can get slingplayer working on it.

yeh, slingplayers the proprietary player for the slingbox. There wont be a player for it, there isnt even one for linux yet, I need to run it in a VM.

OK, well it finally arrived today - I had to get it shipped via the UK, and it was hijacked en-route by a family member who took a fancy to it and took it on holiday with them
Shall post up some photos any my findings after Ive had a play...

Yikes, that much sony gear in one place, I feel a homicidal rage comming on even from this distance It does look good though and with OLED too.

Just as well I didnt have my Sony branded USB memory stick plugged in, or my Sony Bravia TV In view with my Sony Playstation hooked up ;p

Will maybe get round to writing another one...

I do agree that the middle of the range Vaios seem to be overpriced for the spec - can get a similar HP for example for less money but this TZ is awesome. for its size its not much bigger than an asus EEE, but a full spec laptop. (expensive yeh, but less than my previous Alienware 17" briefcase sized beast that I had no end of problems with, and died on me in under 18 months.
Touch wood Ive not had to make a warranty claim on this yet. I picked it up in Tokyo, but when I bought an extended warranty in the UK, they wouldnt apply it to the laptop, said I had to go back to Australasia to get the extended warranty.
Bravia TV I got was a 46". and although could have picked up a cheaper one, I do feel the sonys looked better...
Just grab the drivers off the sony page, Ive found them really simple to reinstall/upgrade/downgrade etc
PS. Sony, if you're reading, Im open to endorsement offers
