The VAIO Z series is one of Sony's finest ultra portable series and is cost accordingly. Like most VAIOs it arrives with a little extra, for example a high-resolution 'X-BRITE' LED-lit screen, a Blu-Ray player and devoted graphics.
It's neither the thinnest or lightest laptop, like for example the MacBook Air or the Lenovo X301, but structures for it by using more influential hardware. For instance, the VAIO Z is prepared with the regular, higher clocked Core 2 Duo's, while its thinner opposition use low-voltage CPUs. It yet has a devoted graphics card to assist with the HD media playback and offer some light gaming capability, which is strange in this weight category.
