Sony VAIO Z (2011)


With its carbon fibre build, premium hardware options and optional dock offering dedicated graphics and Blu-ray playback, Sony's 13.1in VAIO Z is the lightest, most powerful and most versatile ultraportable available.

Super light yet sturdy, Oodles of connectivity, Backlit keyboard, High-resolution screen, Dock makes this the most versatile ultraportable

Expensive and noisy, Shallow keyboard feedback, Carbon fibre chassis scratches easily, Proprietary Thunderbolt implementation

Sony VAIO Z Series


A high performing, very attractive, ultra-portable laptop with its own dock to ensure that extra boost when stationary. Unfortunately, the Sony Z Series comes with a corresponding price. Though if money isn't an object and portability is, get it.

Despite of all the good things mentioned above, the Vaio Z-Series also has a few shortcomings, the most important being related to its gaming capabilities. Of course, demanding extensive gaming features from a device of this type is not exactly fair,...

Incredible power in a 2.5 lb. notebook, great 1080p display

Expensive, dedicated graphics requires external Portable Media Dock

This brings our love story to an end. If you crave an ultraportable that's as capable as much larger laptops, it's hard to beat the Sony Vaio Z 2012 model. It's stunning, weighs only 2.5 lbs. and has a small footprint. There's really nothing like it,...
