VAIO is the first manufacturer in the world to mass produce a 3-D molded, carbon fiber laptop: the VAIO Z. The company shared the news in a press release this morning, which noted that the sleek notebook weighs less than 2.3 pounds and is exceptionally tough thanks to technology previously only available to the car racing industry. Its contoured carbon fiber is made through a process that stacks fiber sheets in three dimensions.

“VAIO has developed a unique process of working with carbon fiber to achieve beautifully contoured lines and the flexible molding of carbon fiber, that was previously difficult to mass produce,” said Kaoru Hayashi, Director, Vice President and Head of PC Business at VAIO Corporation. “[…] the new VAIO Z offers exceptional performance, lightness, endurance, now with true ruggedness, and without compromise, all converging into one elegant design. With VAIO Z as our flagship model, we hope it is the start of VAIO’s future array of laptop PC developments.”

“The VAIO Z offers incredible power through 11th Gen Intel Core processors and new Intel integrated graphics on its 14-inch, high-def 4k LCD panel,” the company explained in its press release. “Additional features include crystal clear sound with Dolby Audio speakers. No more struggling to hear teammates or teachers on video conferencing calls. There are also camera shutter and mic mute shortcuts for privacy, 180-degree open/close screen for easy collaboration and increased battery life to keep you connected for hours.”

The VAIO Z contoured carbon fiber laptop is available to preorder today from the company’s official web shop. There are four different SKUs available, the most expensive of which is priced at $4,179 and comes with an Intel 11th Gen Core i7 processor, 32 GB of memory, and a 2 TB PCIe SSD.
