Double your battery life.
Leveraging the latest innovations in lithium polymer technology, the battery of the Z Series is integrated into the PC and conforms to the contours of the chassis offering a thinner battery profile while still supplying up to 8 hours of battery life. This concept even extends to the all-new large capacity sheet battery and leaves behind the traditional bulky and protruding long-life batteries of the past. Attaching directly to the standard capacity battery and by working in tandem with it, you?ll enjoy up to 16 hours of total combined battery life (with optional extended battery) ? helping to keep you unplugged longer1.
The perfect pair.
Born from a legacy of engineering innovation, Sony introduces the next evolution in ultra-portable laptop design and technology. Building on the idea that an ultra-portable laptop shouldn?t have to compromise performance for a small form factor, the Z Series incorporates a bold new concept ? the Power Media Dock. Leveraging the latest I/O architecture, the Power Media Dock is a performance factory delivering the horsepower your day demands through one unique and familiar port. Featuring a powerful AMD Radeon HD 6650M graphics card with 1GB VRAM, you?ll experience premium visual quality and intense HD performance without placing huge demands on the CPU. The Power Media Dock even includes optional slot loading Blu-ray Disc technology, a USB 3.0 port, HDMI -out and more. Paired together, the Z Series transforms into the ultimate workstation and can even support up to 4 Full HD displays. But when it?s time to hit the road, the 2.6 lbs. / 0.66? thick chassis is always ready to travel. Simply detach the dock and go. Backed by Intel Core processor technology, loads of memory, fast solid state drives, and integrated Intel HD Graphics; you?ll still enjoy the power you need to tackle your day head on.
Enhance the security of the Internet
Symantec VIP is a powerful, additional layer of security that links your PC to the online account, VPN or application that you select, decreasing the ability of thieves to access your accounts and information from another PC. Created jointly by industry leaders Intel and Symantec, and available through select member websites, VIP ensures that only you can access your online accounts and websites. When you log into any of the hundreds of VIP member websites, you?re asked to provide a one-time password that?s automatically generated by Intel Identity Protection Technology. Since the password is random, and you get a new one each time you visit, it?s virtually impossible for cybercriminals to hijack your online identity. The best part? The identity protection technology is built into your new PC?s processor, so there?s no extra hardware to buy and no tokens or other ?credentials? to lug around, forget, or lose. Protecting yourself online has never been easier.

A revolution in Sony VAIO Design
Simple yet bold, the all new Z Series features a new fully flat design concept that abandons traditional bulky batteries, unnecessary seams and protruding ports. A seamless piece of brushed aluminum milled to precise specifications creates the core of the Z Series chassis to offer firm structural integrity. The aluminum core is then encased in a high grade carbon fiber matrix ? the same material used to build formula 1 race cars ? to add flexibility and durability without adding extra weight. Colors include: ?Premium Carbon Fiber Black ?Carbon Fiber Black ?Carbon Fiber Indigo
On the cutting edge of SSD technology
For maximum performance and ample storage, the Z Series features dual channel SSD with RAID technology (select models). RAID technology coordinates between the two solid state drives to keep them operating simultaneously at optimal speed. The result is quicker boot-ups, faster application launches and overall enhanced performance. And of course, since SSD technology includes no moving parts, you get a more durable storage solution less prone to physical damage.
