Vaio Z debuts as the first contoured carbon fiber laptop
February 21, 2021

The notebook was the first mass-produced 3-D molded laptop.

Despite what you may have heard, the Vaio brand is still alive and kicking, albeit under new management. Japan-based Vaio jas just announced the Vaio Z, a notebook made from carbon fiber using technology only previously available in the car racing industry. The molded carbon fiber also allows the Vaio Z to weigh just under 1 kilogram.

Even with the lightweight build, the design has been made to be more durable that makes it practical for everyday use. It also features the latest hardware so you don’t have to worry about performance that is initially only possible with the big and bulky notebooks.

Powering the Vaio Z is an 11th Gen Intel Core H series processor with Intel integrated graphics. There is also a large 14-inch 4K LCD panel that gives you lots of real screen estate. That screen is complimented by great-sounding speakers powered by Dolby Audio. Additionally, privacy is also the focus of the Vaio Z with the addition of a camera shutter and a microphone mute shortcut. 

The Vaio Z also combines human sensing technology with biometrics to keep it secure. Aside from using your face to log in, the notebook knows if you are seated before the screen and will keep you logged in as necessary.

“It is with great pleasure that we introduce Vaio Z to the world. With over a decade of relentless carbon fiber research, Vaio has succeeded in creating and mass-producing the world’s first 3D molded full carbon chassis for laptop PCs,” said Kaoru Hayashi, Director, Vice President, and Head of PC Business at Vaio Corporation.

It is unknown at the moment if the Vaio Z will be available in the UAE and the rest of the Middle East.
