The “VAIO” Z, a notebook PC with a 13.1” LCD display, is the flagship model in the notebook lineup “VAIO” Z Series. A carbon fiber LCD cover and milled aluminum palm rest achieve both high rigidity and light weight. The side view, looking like two overlaying plates, evokes a sharp, thin, light feel that gives physical form to the product’s high-performance specs. This product delivers the three elements of high performance, mobility and stylish design. The Dynamic Hybrid Graphics system uses a unique triangular slide key design that enables switching to the desired mode in a single action from any position.
