Reviews for the VAIO Z VJZ141C11L

83.8% VAIO Z Core i7-11375H Review: The Laptop for CEOs and Executives | Notebookcheck
This $3800 USD Vaio system is one of the first to ship with a Tiger Lake-H Core i7-11375H CPU. However, the luxury laptop falls flat in most other aspects when compared to the Dell XPS, HP EliteBook, Asus ZenBook, Apple MacBook, or Huawei MateBook models that all retail for significantly less.
Vaio Z hands-on: An all-carbon-fibre notebook with the most crazy price tag
Source: Hardware Zone English
As with finer things in life, the cream of the crop does cost exponentially more, and the Vaio Z is representative of this. If you do decide to pony up for the Vaio Z, do know that it will come with an extended warranty period that's more than the industry norm, on-site servicing and setup assistance, and more personalised service. A gold-class service if you will for the most exotic ultraportable notebook you can land your hands on today.

70% Vaio Z (2021) Review: Carbon Tax
Source: The Verge English
But the performance bump the Core i7-11375H delivers in this form factor isn’t enough of an improvement to justify a multithousand-dollar premium over all kinds of more affordable models on the market today, whether they contain M1 chips, AMD chips, or chips from Intel itself. Neither is the contoured carbon fiber — which, while cool, won’t bring a concrete benefit to most customers. At half its price, the Vaio Z would be in the conversation; at $3,579, I’m happy to commend it from afar.

There’s a lot to like about the Vaio Z. It has solid performance, long battery life, a gorgeous display, and a ridiculously fast SSD all wrapped in a super lightweight chassis. It’s really appealing until you see that it costs $3,779. Then you’ll notice that it doesn’t have many ports, the touchpad isn't satisfying, and the top display bezel is thick.

70% Vaio Z (2021) Review: Carbon Tax
Source: The Verge English
There are two things about it that are groundbreaking — at least on paper. The first is that it’s made entirely of carbon fiber. While plenty of high-end laptops, including the Dell XPS 13, have sheets of carbon fiber across their palm rests and other materials on the sides, the Vaio Z includes contoured carbon fiber, meaning the material is molded around the edges, and the whole thing is carbon fiber. (Vaio says the Z is the first laptop to use contoured carbon fiber, though the 2012 Gigabyte X11 also claims an all-carbon fiber build.)

2021 Vaio Z Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the Vaio Z, an unusually powerful 14” Ultrabook with a 3D carbon fiber casing. The Vaio Z isn’t exactly an Ultrabook because it has a significantly more powerful Intel 11th gen Core i7 35 watt CPU rather than the usual 15 watt Ultrabook CPU. The 1 kg laptop has a wide gamut matte 4K display (overseas will likely see a full HD option available too). Thanks to PCIe 4, it has extremely fast SSD speeds. Thunderbolt 4, Intel Wi-Fi 6, a fingerprint scanner and Windows Hello IR camera with presence detection are standard.

The hyperlight VAIO Z is back, and 2021's all-carbon-fiber edition, packing a powerhouse CPU, is one of the most alluring ultralight laptops. It's also one of the least affordable.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
