VAIO today announced its next generation of flagship VAIO Z laptops with the world’s first “full carbon fiber” body. Due to the difficulty of carbon fiber processing, it was mostly used on flat parts of the laptop such as the top cover or keyboard surface, but this time the VAIO adopts a proprietary technology developed in collaboration with Toray, it is possible to bend the three mass-produced carbon fibers, so that even the body of the VAIO Z is carbon can be made of fiber. This allows the VAIO Z not only to weigh 958g under the 14-inch body, but it can withstand a 127cm drop impact.
In terms of internal features, the VAIO Z is also extremely powerful. Unlike most thin and light notebooks that use low voltage processors, the VAIO Z uses H series processors and is equipped with an Iris Xe internal display. The highest might be the Core i7-11370H. You can choose the 4K HDR or 1080p version with the 14-inch panel, up to 32GB of RAM and 2TB SSD, but the main surprising is that the FHD panel version of VAIO claims it can provide up to 34 hours of power, and the 4K HDR version also has 17 Hours, quite amazing.
However, compared to the image of VAIO’s previous commercial models with enough ports, this time there is only one USB-C, HDMI output and headphone jack to the left and right of the VAIO Z. The connection selection is a bit more enjoyable. However, the physical webcam is equipped with functions such as privacy screen and User Detection that automatically locks / unlocks the human body. The VAIO Z doesn’t seem to have a locally available price, but the lowest priced version in Japan seems to start at around 270,000 yen (around NT $ 73,000 / HK $ 20,000). As we are listed here, we should expect the close price to increase as well, be right.
