Discipline: Product

The VAIO type TZ is a mobile notebook PC with a carbon-material casing and high-density architecture, creating a body just 22.5mm thick that delivers both slenderness and strength. Free from conventional conceptions of the PC, this product suggests “delight in the hand” as its theme. It pursues texture, design, and a detailed functional beauty to be admired in the hand, as well as functionality and performance. The round cylinder hinge connecting the liquid crystal display to the keyboard and the unified look of the attached battery contribute to a clean total design.
