Vaio Z Flip review

 

Beauty and a beast

Easy-to-use conversion mechanism ; Color-rich, clear display ; Port-y

Shallow keyboard ; Loud fan ; Pricey proposition

Vaio’s 2-in-1 laptop has a unique look and a cornucopia of features, but it’s price keeps this jack-of-all-trades from truly standing out.

Vaio Z Flip review

 

Vaio's Z Flip blows past every other 2-in-1.

VAIO Z Flip

 

The VAIO Z Flip is a pricey premium convertible-hybrid laptop that will primarily appeal to graphic artists and hobbyists who need computing power and a versatile screen.

Excellent performance. More than 12 hours of battery life. Innovative hinge hides keyboard. Pressure-sensitive stylus included. Terrific screen image quality.

Expensive. Lacks stylus storage. Finicky latch for convertible screen. Power plug too easy to detach.

If you're a graphics professional, the VAIO Z Flip delivers class-leading performance, a long-lasting battery pack, and a convertible screen mechanism that helps you interact with your art up close and personal, in a tactile manner. But at almost...

Vaio Z Flip review: You've never seen this much power in a thin laptop

 

Sure, it's not made by Sony anymore, but if you've got the cash, this Vaio might be your dream hybrid tablet-laptop.

The Vaio Z Flip has exceptional performance for a thin and light laptop, a crisp high-resolution screen and an attractive, functional design.

Battery life in this expensive system is just adequate, not great. Loud fans and an overly glossy screen detract from the experience too.

For those willing to pay top dollar for a stylish, functional, highly portable PC, the Vaio Z Flip is impressive -- but you might do better with a Lenovo Yoga 900, MacBook Pro or Microsoft Surface Book.

VAIO Z Flip Review and Ratings

 

With a clever folding action and top-notch components, the VAIO Z Flip is a unique design among Windows 2-in-1s. Only the price keeps it from being a star.

Chart-topping performance ; Very good battery life for its size and weight ; Impeccable build quality ; Good keyboard and touch pad ; No exposed keyboard in tablet mode

Pricey in base or high-end configurations ; Heavy, when used as a tablet ; Lacks a USB Type-C port ; No slot for stylus storage

The VAIO Z Flip is a strong offering in the premium convertible-notebook market. It has impeccable quality throughout. We liked its unique display-flipping mechanism, which covers the keyboard in tablet mode. This eliminates the complaint we have about...
