VAIO that was originally a brand of Sony, has now launched a new notebook – VAIO Z. The company is primarily highlighting the materials used and design of its new notebook.
The Japanese laptop brand touts its new VAIO Z notebook is made a new generation of carbon fiber materials and combined with three-dimensional molding technology. VAIO touts that the housing of the notebook is made by stacking carbon fiber processed into sheets and three-dimensionally processing them. This makes the notebook lighter yet strong enough to withstand the impact of a 1.2m drop. Also, MIL-STD-810H military standard certification further speaks for its toughness.
VAIO Z is powered by the new 11th-generation Intel Core i7-11375H processor with a clock frequency of up to 5GHz. It gets up to 32GB RAM and 2TB SSD storage. The configuration is bundled with iRIS Xe graphics, which is better suited for gamers, designers, and creators.
It features a 14-inch HDR display with 1920x1080 pixels resolution. The notebook can bend to 180-degrees to offer a comfortable viewing angle. The VAIO Z does not include many ports. It only has 2 sets of USB Type-C (Thunderbolt 4), HDMI, and 3.5mm headphone/meter jacks. This is one major difference between the new VAIO Z and the older models from the VAIO brand.
The price of the VAIO Z notebook starts at 366,080 yen (~$3400). This is quite expensive than other top gaming laptops in the market today. It comes in Black and Signature Black options. The notebook is listed on the company’s official store and the expected delivery date is March 6, 2021.
