Vaio Z: Carbon Fiber Laptop
Vaio Z: Carbon Fiber Laptop

Vaio is known for making lightweight laptops. The Vaio Z starts at $ 3,580 and can cost up to $ 4,180. This is perhaps the company's most ambitious product to date.

VAIO laptop enthusiasts might remember the Z Series, known for its remarkable portability until its quiet demise in 2017.

The device contains a quad-core Intel Core i7-11357H processor with a starting weight of 957 grams and is considered the lightest laptop ever with Intel H series processors.

The main reason the Vaio Z appears to be so light is that it is the first laptop to have a 3D carbon fiber case.

Carbon fiber is found in some of the best lightweight laptops, including the durable and lightweight Dell XPS series.

However, these laptops use carbon fiber panels that anchor with metal or plastic parts, and Vaio adds textures to the edges of the Vaio Z case so that carbon fiber can be seen everywhere.

In the past, VAIO only used carbon fiber flat screens so it could rely only on metal or plastic parts to hold them together.

Using this new production technology, developed in collaboration with carbon fiber expert Toray, a sturdy enclosure can be formed that appears to withstand a drop from a height of 127 cm (which exceeds MIL-STD-810H requirements) with the same weight.

The company said: The device has passed 26 surface drop tests and provides a battery life of 13.5 hours.

As with the other specs, you get up to 2TB of PCIe SSD storage, up to 32GB of RAM, integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics, and a 14-inch 4K anti-glare screen.

Each side has a headphone jack, a security lock slot, a backlit keyboard, a 2MP webcam with physical lock, a full-size HDMI port, and a Thunderbolt 4 USB-C port. You can rotate the screen 180 degrees
