The VAIO® TZ notebook features an eye-catching Premium Black carbon-fiber casing with a special gel surface coating to showcase the gorgeous crossing patterns of the individual fibers. The rich texture it creates suggests a rustic yet urbane sophistication, all while providing superior durability. Given the handcrafted nature of this premium carbon-fiber casing, it is only available in limited quantity.
The VAIO® TZ notebook features an 11.1"12 WXGA widescreen display with Sony’s original XBRITE-HiColor™ LCD technology with white LED backlight. Sony’s innovative backlight technology offers lower power consumption for improved battery life and provides incredibly high brightness levels, amplifying colors and creating clear, crisp pictures that truly “pop” off the LCD. The result: an amazing 72% color saturation for deeper blacks, brighter whites, true-to-life color and razor-sharp detail. And, with the anti-reflective coating to minimize reflection while providing a wide viewing angle, you’ll enjoy a beautifully clear image from almost any angle. It’s the ideal way to present your work or watch a DVD when you’re on the go.
Sony’s innovative power-saving technology combined with Intel® Centrino® Duo processor technology efficiently manages power resources to deliver an amazing 4 to 7.5 hours of standard battery life8. And for those times when you’ll be on the go all day, rely on the optional large capacity battery for 6 to 11.5 hours of power8 to get you through.
Perfect for long flights where extended battery life is a necessity, the VAIO® TZ notebook’s ingenious Instant Mode allows you to go straight to watching a movie, playing music or viewing photos at the touch of a button, without having to boot-up the operating system. And with the convenient A/V control buttons located in the front of the unit for easy operation from a reclined viewing position, you can stop, play, fast forward, reverse and eject with one-touch simplicity. To complement these features, an 11.1"12 WXGA widescreen display with Sony’s original XBRITE-HiColor™ LCD technology lets you watch movies and DVDs with stunning clarity in the intended aspect ratio for theatrical presentation.
The luxuriously sleek and ultra-portable VAIO® TZ notebook boasts an incredibly small and lightweight form-factor that features an especially robust carbon-fiber casing for enhanced durability. This best-in-class PC weighs only 2.7 lbs15, is less than 1” thin3 and features an incredible 4 to 7.5 hours of standard battery life8.
The VAIO® TZ notebook is more than just portable, it’s a truly mobile wireless companion. True mobility is about broad access just as much as it is about slim, lightweight design. And the VAIO TZ notebook takes that access farther than ever before with optional integrated wireless Wide Area Network (WAN)17 technology through Sprint® Mobile Broadband, the nation’s largest wireless broadband network. Take advantage of Sprint’s latest mobile network technology, EV-DO Revision A. With faster average download speeds and broadband upload speeds, Sprint’s EV-DO Revision A technology lets you utilize richer applications and services on the go, such as high-speed video telephony, video messaging and large file uploads. With Sprint, the VAIO TZ notebook gives you the freedom to go farther, do more and stay connected.
Weighing in at only 2.6lbs15 with standard battery, the stylish VAIO® TZ notebook features an improved lightweight and especially robust carbon-fiber casing. From the top of the LCD cover, which features an added thickness of 0.2mm, to the bottom of the unit, including the edges, the carbon-fiber casing provides superior protection against impact shocks and torqued movements. Carbon fiber, the same material used on jets and sports cars to keep them lightweight yet sturdy, is much stronger than the magnesium used on standard notebooks. Built with the rigors of the road in mind, the VAIO TZ notebook will keep you up and running trouble-free.
The VAIO® TZ notebook takes performance to a new level by utilizing flash memory in place of the typical spinning hard-disk drive memory found in most PCs. Faster and more reliable, flash memory provides a rapid boot-up and quicker access to applications while significantly reducing the risk of hard drive problems that result from its moving parts, an ideal feature for a travel notebook where knocks and sudden movements are par for the course.
The VAIO® TZ notebook features a thoughtfully redesigned keyboard that showcases an extreme attention to detail. Designed for ease of use and a smart, sophisticated look, the individual keys are slightly raised above an attractive piano-black bezel layer producing a user-friendly touch and feel to the keyboard that creates an improved typing experience. In addition, an extra support layer has been added below the bezel to increase the structural integrity of the keyboard and add stability to the keys, giving them an unwavering up-down motion and making for quieter typing. Details like these not only enhance the look and feel of the TZ notebook, but also reveal the design intelligence and innovation that only Sony can offer.
