Weighing little over a kilogram, the new VAIO Z Series notebook PC from Sony is created for mobile professionals who demand absolute performance and portability.

VAIO Z blends ultra-desirable styling and premium carbon fibre with no-compromise specifications and innovative productivity features. In the office or on the road, this class-leading business notebook helps demanding users work more efficiently with the ultimate in on-the-move computing power.

All-new VAIO Z takes cutting-edge styling by Sony to new extremes, with a ‘full flat’ body and display lid that are crafted in tough, ultra-light carbon fibre. At just below 1.2kg and 16.65mm slim, the new VAIO Z is the perfect partner for business travellers who demand ultimate power with less to carry.

Sheet battery

VAIO Z features the innovative ‘sheet battery’ already showcased on this year’s VAIO S Series. The notebook’s internal lithium polymer battery provides power for up to 7 hours1 on-the-go computing. It’s partnered by a second thin, flat optional lithium polymer sheet battery that can be charged separately from the PC and added without removing the internal battery. The sheet battery attaches without having to switch off the PC, boosting stamina to up to 14 hours for day-and-night working, even if you’re far from mains power.


Those are some pretty big claims from Sony about the battery life! If they can live up to their claims, then they might have a winner on their hands. That is assuming you can get over the massive £2,699 price tag. Yes, that’s right, £2,699. You can get nearly 2 MacBook Air’s for that (or more if you want the lower spec one’s). To be fair, the price does start at £1,434 but that won’t get you the spec you would really drool over!

It will be interesting to see what Apple come up with as the rumours of new MacBook Air’s are already circulating.
