The VAIO brand is well known to many users. At one time, it belonged to Sony and produced exciting devices. In 2014 VAIO became an independent company, focusing mainly on laptops’ production (although they even tried to make smartphones). One of the most successful laptops is the VAIO Z.The latest model belonging to this series was presented in 2017. And now, four years later, meet the new VAIO Z.
The company says it is the world’s first laptop with a 3D molded carbon fiber body. Previously, VAIO could only use flat carbon fiber elements and resort to using plastic or metal parts to connect them. Now we have got a more improved design.
This makes the VAIO Z more resistant to external influences and, at the same time, lightweight – weighing 1.04 kg. The device can survive falls from a height of 127 cm.
