The VAIO Z and VAIO Z Canvas at the company’s new touch screen laptop hybrids. The former is intended for use in enterprise while the latter is more of a creativity tool.
Engadget was on-hand to get plenty of pictures, as well as the basic specs of both devices.
The VAIO Z features “multiflip” mode, allowing the user to transform the 13.3-inch laptop into a tablet. The keyboard can also be positioned behind the screen for movie viewing or video conferencing activities.
It houses a second-generation SSD and Core i7 processor. The device weighs 2.95 pounds and measures about 0.66 inches in thickness.
There is a special power-saving display with a narrow lighting angle and a unique battery design with improved power capacity. It is for these features that VAIO claims the battery lasts up 15.5 hours.
The VAIO Z is available for preorder in Japan today for approximately $1,600.
The VAIO Z Canvas features a removable 12.1-inch display with 2560 x 1740 screen resolution. It also comes with a digitizer stylus. VAIO claims that it will come with up to 1TB of storage.
There is no official information as to price or release date of the Canvas model.
