Vaio is understood for making laptop computers that load a surprising quantity of power into amazingly thin kind aspects. The Vaio Z may be the business’s most ambitious item. It consists of approximately Intel’s four-core Core i7-11357 H– and at a starting weight of 2.11 pounds, it’ll be the lightest laptop computer ever to house an Intel H-series processor. (Though designs you can purchase in the US are 2.32 pounds.)
Part of the factor the Vaio Z is so light is that it’s the first laptop computer ever to be made from “contoured carbon fiber.” You’ll discover carbon fiber in some of the best lightweight laptop computers on the market, consisting of the Dell XPS line– it’s a durable and light-weight product. Those laptop computers use sheets of carbon fiber that are held together with metal or plastic parts. Vaio has really contoured the product around the edges of the Z’s chassis, so it’s carbon fiber all around.
Vaio states the device has passed 26 “surface area drop” tests, and will deliver up to 13 and a half hours of battery life. In regards to other specs, you can get up to 2TB of storage, 32 GB of memory, Iris Xe integrated graphics, and either an FHD or a 4K 14- inch display screen. There’s a backlit keyboard, a web cam with a physical shutter, a full-size HDMI port, and two USB-C ports also. The chassis is a clamshell, though you can fold the screen down to 180 degrees.
Of course, this all doesn’t come low-cost. The Vaio Z starts at– I’m not joking– $3,579 It won’t be a practical purchase for the majority of people, however it’s still an outstanding achievement and a fascinating proof-of-concept.
