When you're on the go and deadlines approach, there's no room for compromise. Forged from high-grade aluminum and lightweight carbon fiber, the slim-yet-sturdy VAIO Z Series laptop makes mincemeat of your workload without weighing you down. It's even available with Blu-ray Disc™ technology. At a svelte three pounds1 and measuring just an inch thin1, the Z serves up a mouthwatering mix of go-anywhere mobility and sophisticated style.
YOUR OWN MOBILE HOTSPOT.
Select Z Series laptops feature Sony's exclusive Share My Connection™technology15. This technology lets you turn your computer into a mobile hotspot that can connect up to five other PCs or networked devices, such as smartphones, MP3 players, and cameras.
SEE THE LIGHT.
Working late tonight? The backlit keyboard of the Z features LED illumination for a remarkable view of the keys. Perfect for typing in the cabin of a plane or in bed with the lights turned down, the lights shine through the characters themselves as well as between the keys—framing them with a pleasant glow that helps minimize typos.
By employing an advanced, reliable solid state drive (SSD) instead of a typical spinning hard disk drive, the Z Series notebook provides faster boot-up, speedier access to your applications, faster read/write speeds and lower power consumption. Because an SSD has no moving parts, it's less prone to the common scratches that occur in conventional hard drives.
POWER WHEN YOU NEED IT.
Exclusive to the Z, the revolutionary Dynamic Hybrid Graphics System lets you easily set your graphics performance to deliver power when you need it and battery life savings when you don't. You can even select your performance level on the fly without rebooting using the unique 3-position switch. Changing from internal graphics to NVIDIA® GeForce®Graphics with 1GB VRAM is unbelievably easy—or just leave it in Auto mode and the Z will choose the best option for you.
Inspired by high fashion, the limited-edition Infinite Stripes and Bordeaux Red Z Series laptops evoke a premium feeling of speed and power. The Glossy Premium Carbon model offers a faster processor, more storage and RAM, a Full HD display, a Blu-ray drive and more.
INTERNET TO GO.
No slow connections here. When you fire up the Z Series, your email and favorite websites load quickly no matter where you are. And wireless technology is all built-in, so there are no unsightly PC cards or add-ons necessary. And you can even choose Verizon or Sprint as your carrier14.
BLU-RAY FOR MOVIES & STORAGE.
The ultimate high-definition experience. With pristine HD resolution and stunning clarity, Blu-ray Disc™ technology is the ultimate way to enjoy your entertainment2. Available on select models, Blu-ray Disc media burning capabilities3 let you store content in a format that provides up to five times the capacity of standard DVDs (25-50GB of HD content to a single disc).
