UAE – Media
OutReach – 18 February 2021 – VAIO® is the first company
in the world to successfully mass produce a 3-D molded, carbon fiber laptop
with the Uni-direction carbon fiber. Using technology only previously available
to the car racing industry, molded carbon fiber makes the new VAIO®Z lighter at
just under 1kg^. Moreover, with all
around carbon fiber protection, the VAIO®Z offers exceptional toughness, and its
turbo charged with unprecedented speed.
In fact, the new VAIO®Z features the same powerful processing speed
previously only found in the PCs of the most demanding fields.
Although previously gaining popularity, mobile computing has never
been more essential. With more
professionals and students having to work and collaborate remotely these days,
their mobile computing needs have increased.
Of course, there are inherent risks with mobility as seen with
mobile phone usage, for example.
Everyone is well acquainted with the challenge of keeping mobile devices
from getting damaged and now, more so with laptops. Both have become indispensable investments
that make work, learning and connecting socially possible. So, when they are
damaged, it can disrupt users’ needs.
The new VAIO®Z was designed for today’s mobile computing needs. The VAIO®Z’s
lighter yet more durable design makes mobility less cumbersome, more practical
and safer for work and learning needs.
No more having to carry a heavy laptop from place to place or even
room to room. No more worrying that this valued work partner and learning tool
will get damaged, and no more worrying about securing your privacy.
The VAIO®Z offers incredible power through 11th Gen Intel® Core™ H series processors
and new Intel® integrated graphics on its 14-inch, high-def 4k LCD panel.
features include crystal clear sound with Dolby Audio speakers. No more
struggling to hear teammates or teachers on video conferencing calls.
Camera shutter and mic mute shortcuts for privacy, 180-degree
open/close screen for easy collaboration and increased battery life to keep you
connected for hours.
Plus, the VAIO®Z will get to know you. It
is VAIO® User Sensing engineering combines human sensing technology and biometrics
to make the VAIO®Z a truly personal experience. The VAIO®Z uses face
authentication to log you in when you are seated before it, and it keeps you
logged as long as you are seated in front of it. No more having to remember
your password or worrying someone will use it. When you are away, it locks
automatically to secure your privacy.
Kaoru Hayashi, Director, Vice President and Head of PC Business at
VAIO® Corporation proudly states, “It is with great pleasure that we introduce VAIO®Z
to the world. With over a decade
of relentless carbon fiber research, VAIO has succeeded in creating and mass producing the world’s first
3D molded full carbon chassis for laptop PCs.
VAIO has developed a unique process of working
with carbon fiber to achieve beautifully contoured lines and the flexible
molding of carbon fiber, that was previously difficult to mass produce.
The achievement of harnessing carbon fiber’s full potential of lightness and
durability is both revolutionary and evolutionary as we continue looking ahead.
With this evolution, the new VAIO®Z offers exceptional performance, lightness,
endurance, now with true ruggedness, and without compromise, all converging
into one elegant design. With VAIO®Z as our flagship model, we hope it is
the start of VAIO®’s future array of laptop PC developments.
We also want to use this proud moment to share VAIO®’s redefined
mission. Like VAIO®Z, we have reshaped our mission statement to show our commitment
to our technical ingenuity that is deeply engrained in our DNA.
Therefore, our renewed mission statement is “Illuminate your spirit with VAIO.
Accelerating innovation through design and technology.”
Our vision is to make VAIO® PCs a valued partner to customers who,
like VAIO®, are the world’s innovators, creators, and relentless leaders in
their fields. It is our hope that our VAIO® PCs become an enduring
presence that inspires our customers as they forge ahead to meet and exceed
their goals no matter the challenge.
