For those who think the Vaio Z looks quite familiar, it could be due to Sony’s known ultraportable laptop that was already released over a decade ago. This was back when the electronics giant was very heavily involved in the entire PC market.
However, as 2014 approached, it was at this point that Sony suddenly decided to stop producing computers and also sold a number of parts of its business to a consortium that eventually became the Vaio Corporation.
The Vaio Z laptop is molded from carbon fiber
According to a ZDNet article, Sony still retains the entire Vaio brand and also still has a stake in this brand new company. Vaio Corp. has also slowly resumed production of those laptops that carry the familiar brand that includes the Vaio SX14 in 2019. Like other versions from Sony, the all-new Vaio laptop features what is considered to be an attractive design and some pretty solid features that come at a premium price tag.
With the relaunch of the new Vaio Z, the company is now taking all of these special things to a whole new level. According to Vaio, the all-new Z will be the first mass-produced laptop to be made from 3D-molded carbon fiber, a particular process that the company says was previously relegated to racing car design.
This would combine strength and lightness, leaving the Vaio Z’s chassis at just under 2.3 pounds despite its decent 14-inch display. It is also a computer that allows the top cover to do a 180 degrees.
Where are Vaio laptops made?
Despite its particularly small footprint, said Vaio Z still features the 11th generation Intel Core i7-11375H mobile processor from the H series to deliver decent performance. Three of the four different configurations would come with 16GB of RAM while said high-end models would come with 32GB of RAM.
The SSD will range from 512GB to 2TB. The small 14-inch display is capable of 4K resolution and would rely on Intel’s integrated Iris Xe GPU.
Vaio would also include some cool security features, such as the built-in shutter that helps users cover their webcam, as well as something called User Sensing that allows users to log in hands-free. Connectivity includes 802.11a / b / g / n / ac / ax WiFi 6 as well as a pair of USB Type C Thunderbolt 4 ports.

What Makes the Vaio Laptop Powerful and Compact?
While the original Vaio Z was quite expensive even by Sony standards, Vaio keeps that tradition with this particular version as the base configuration would be priced at $ 3,579 for 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD and there would be three other versions up.
Adding an additional $ 200 would allow users to double the storage and finally, users can pay $ 4,179 to get 32GB RAM with 2TB SSD. Prices can be viewed on the Vaio official site.
