What is Contoured Carbon Fiber?

Contoured carbon fiber is made through a process that stacks the fiber sheets in three dimensions. The shape is created by drawing out its characteristics while maximizing its rigidity and functional beauty.

The ultimate experience and innovation.

Overwhelming Mobility.

A form created by necessity.

You don’t want a laptop that needs to recharge before you do. Stay in the game - and on the field - longer than ever before. VAIO Z gives you maximum time to think, talk or watch all the media you need to succeed. The next billion isn’t on the clock.

Amazing Graphics

The 4K UHD display covers 99.8% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and is compatible with Panel Self Refresh to achieve power savings. This reproduces the gamut used as the digital cinema standard.

Beautifully detailed 4K display

The 4K UHD display reproduces shadows equivalent to those seen with the human eye. The exceptional brightness of the high contrast LCD can show fine details. The screen is clear, beautiful and realistic.

*HDR enabled content only. When the HDR function is enabled, the LCD backlight panel automatically adjusts the brightness of the entire screen to reduce power consumption and increase contrast.
