Product Specifications

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. The VAIO TZ notebook features an 11.1" 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. 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. 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. 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. Sony's innovative power-saving technology efficiently manages power resources to deliver an amazing 4 to 7.5 hours of standard battery life. 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 power 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. 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.
