VAIO Z flip model Review


Lisa Gade reviews the Vaio Z (flip), the second Vaio model to come to the US from the newly owned company. This is a 13.3” Ultrabook and 2-in-1 Windows convertible laptop with a unique hinge that we first saw on the Sony Vaio Flip models in late 2013.

** Read our full written review here:

This is a little powerhouse that runs on 28 watt dual core Intel Skylake 6th generation 2.9 GHz Core i5 and 3.3 GHz Core i7 CPUs with Intel Iris 550 graphics. It has a 2560 x 1440 QHD IPS display that supports touch and the included N-Trig pen. The laptop is available with 8 or 16 gigs of RAM and 256 or 512 gig PCIe NVMe SSD drives. It weighs 2.95 lbs. and has an aluminum casing with a carbon fiber bottom. It’s truly a powerful and classy Ultrabook that converts into a tablet, with a high price to match. Pre-orders start in the US on Feb. 8, 2016. It’s made in Japan.

  1. Still have one, use it daily. 6th generation i7, but quick enough to never have me waiting. Vaio is so good and durable you start looking for excuses to buy a new toy, as you actually don't NEED one…
    Only 'negative' is you hear it when the fan turns on.
    Chassis and battery are indistructable. I'd gladly pay for an update to gen 10 cpu and 16 GB RAM.

  2. very dissapointing the letter "e" stopped working and they ask me for 450 euros !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! to change the keyboard

  3. Most beautiful laptop ever ? I dare say yes. Maybe I might get a Vaio laptop in the future… But that price…

    At this price range, the Vaio Z Flip, a premium specialised laptop, competes directly with the Microsoft Surface lineup (and more specifically the Surface Book).

    I'd love to see a Vaio 2-in-1 with a dedicated graphics card for gaming, Thunderbolt ports, and an option to turn on Pro Colour Accurate Display Mode (as some users might not appreciate the correct 6500K white point).

    A "heavy" 14-inch touchscreen 2-in-1 laptop that is too unweildy for a tablet ? Not necessarily a bad thing ; the flip design still gives you more flexibility. You can flip the laptop keyboard away and plug in a mechanical keyboard, for example, and then put the laptop itself on a box to make an ergonomic desktop-like configuration — like what I'm doing now with my HP Spectre x360.

  4. Speak faster – your videos r too long for some reason u talk for 30 min but there is only about 8mins of info in there

  5. i love vaio. black and sleek design i have an svf15n17cxb and i love it its also a flip never found any other laptop like it . my problem is the cpu is quite old now i7 4th gen . im willing to pay above and beyond for a new one with new specs

  6. I have the first VAIO,and I love it . I chose to keep it,and I have no regrets. I have an acc.with HP Smart friend,and get them to fix it remotely when ever I have any problems,but I will get the Z very soon also,I love the look.

  7. Awersome review; Very Detailed! Struggling right now to decide between this or the HP Elitebook X360. Open to comments from others if you have any suggestions!

  8. So this Caio is the same as the one from 2013 in terms of performances? Also, how does this terminal go against Microsoft surface book?

  9. The access point component accessory as you call it is actually a wireless router that connects to the AC adapter via its USB 3.0 connector and not met to be connected to the laptop's USB 3.0 connectors. I own one and use it for this feature.

  10. With the only problem of the glossy screen it seems like one of the best 2-in-1 laptops… Too bad VAIO's GNU/Linux support hasn't been good enough, I guess there are still the alternatives from Thinkpad, Dell & Asus…
