Reviews for the Sony Vaio Z 13-1X0211S

70% Vaio Z
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Vaio Z is a luxury laptop with an impressive screen, a body made of premium materials and a processor that delivers strong, snappy performance. I expect all of these things from a laptop over $1,000 (heck, I demand them), and this ultraportable delivers. But the notebook falters in actual usability. For one, the keyboard is flat and uncomfortable, which increases typing errors.
