Pre-orders for the Vaio Z Canvas to start soon in North America
As reported earlier this year, Vaio is making a comeback to the notebook/convertible market with the Vaio Z Canvas VJZ12AX. The 12.3-inch convertible is expected to launch as early as October 5 in Brazil and North America with pre-orders beginning soon.
The Windows 10-based convertible will carry an uncommon resolution of 2560 x 1704 pixels paired with a powerful quad-core i7-4770HQ CPU and integrated Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200. Storage options include PCIe SSD or M.2 and a stylus will also be included. Vaio appears to be aiming straight for the Surface Pro crowd based on these core specifications.
In Japan, the Vaio Z Canvas will start at just under 250000 Yen or about 1850 Euros. As for its US price, the manufacturer had mentioned a starting price of $2200 USD in an earlier press release. As usual, expect our full review on the device in the coming weeks when units are finally available.
