This is something that Sony or other brands are still struggling before and have not been able to do.
In the past, laptops bearing the name “carbon fiber” were mostly frames made of flat carbon fiber sheets assembled together with metal materials such as aluminum or magnesium (for example, Dell XPS for example).
So the weight, as well as the reinforcement ability are not equal to the 3D printing technology on this Vaio Z (Vaio Z is 1.04 kg light).
#2. Hardware of laptop Vaio Z
The machine is sold with 4 models:
VJZ141X0211X, These models differ mainly in terms of SSD hard drive capacity (512GB / 1TB / 2TB) and ram capacity (16 / 32GB).
The starting price for the Vaio Z Laptop is ~ $ 3,500, the difference is about ~ $ 200, this price is enough to startle you.
However, “professionals” will certainly understand the value that it brings (because Sony launched Vaio Z is to compete with the super product MacBook Pro M1 of Apple that):
- CPU: Tiger Lake 11th Intel i7 (likely i7-11375H), note CPU
Hhas very high performance (it is not the same as the line
Usave electricity, guys).
- GPU: Intel Iris Xe Graphics
- RAM: 16 / 32GB standard LPDDR4
- Hard Drive: From 512GB “4th Generation” PCIe SSD
- Screen: 14-inch Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160)
- Battery: over 10 hours
- Ports: 1 HDMI, 2 USB Type-C (Thunderbolt 4), DisplayPort 1.4, 1 Headphone + Microphone port
- WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1
- Weight: World’s lightest – 1.04 kg (as of the time of this writing).
- Frame: Super durable carbon fiber, made by 3D printing technology ..
# 3. Epilogue
Yes, with such a price range of thousands of dollars, you already understand where the Laptop market is going, how advanced the technology is.
Take a look at the computer you are using and wonder why the price is also quite high, but very drowsy when fighting new AAA games or when doing 4K / 8K video rendering?
I do not encourage you to follow the terrible configuration, but the core issue here is from the carbon fiber material that Vaio Z has used, with the advantages of durability with light weight, good heat dissipation without inferior to aluminum frame or Magnesium.
I would like to affirm that, for Laptop, just thin and light amounts alone are enough to enhance the experience and improve the ability to work a lot, ladies and gentlemen.
You try to put a MacBook Air or Lenovo Yoga on your lap and sit on the sofa to work and try (sometimes “change the wind” instead of sitting at the desk all day), do not worry about legs, do not worry about running out of battery suddenly. Suddenly, very high to you ^^!
Okay, I wish you all to make a lot of money and soon have a chance to own me 🙂
