  • 1Description

The VIAO 13.3" Z Notebook is a slim, lightweight notebook that's designed to last you throughout the day. It has a 13.3" display with a WQHD 2560 x 1440 resolution driven by integrated Intel Iris Graphics 550 to deliver crisp and clear visual content. You can also output video and HD audio via its HDMI port. The Z Notebook is powered by a 6th generation Skylake 3.3 GHz Intel Core i7-6567U dual-core processor and 8 GB of 1866 MHz LPDDR3 RAM, which ensures smooth multitasking and quick access to frequently used files and programs. When you need additional computing power, the processor can be adjusted to 3.6 GHz using Intel's Turbo Boost technology.

For long term storage of your files, the Z notebook has a 256GB PCIe solid state drive. Solid state drives have no moving parts, making them more resistant to bumps and shock, and they deliver faster performance than traditional hard drives. If you want to add external storage, peripherals, and more, it is equipped with two USB 3.0 Type-A ports. Built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi provides wireless Internet connectivity while Bluetooth 4.1 technology enables you to connect additional compatible peripherals such as headsets, keyboards, and mice. Other integrated features include an SD card reader, a 1-megapixel webcam, speakers, and a microphone. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Pro (64-bit).

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.

    VAIO VJZ131X0111S reviews

    13.3" Z Notebook is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Wifi keeps dropping & the battery doesn't last long :( On paper, this laptop tickets all the boxes, but in reality it doesn't. The wifi keeps dropping out which causes a lot of frustration and wasted time (including with a wireless printer). And you can't use the LAN adaptor provided because it doesn't fit the machine (i.e. it sits loosely and therefore doesn't connect) and it also doesn't allow your laptop to sit flat on a surface because the LAN adaptor sits partly above the laptop and partly below the laptop so you can't sit the laptop on a flat surface. The battery life is supposed to be sufficient for a working day and even longer, but I only manage to get about 4, maybe 5 hours from the batter before it dies. It's still OK but it doesn't do what it says on the tin. The screen only opens to a 90 degree angle so if you use a cooler/laptop stand where you usually open your laptop to 180 degrees for better positioning, then this isn't going to work anymore, sadly. It does have a quick start up and runs well. It's light and easy to move around with. Working within the laptop is easy and it does move around screens quickly. But at the end of the day, it's a little disappointing as it doesn't do what it says on the tin and a lot of time is wasted on the wifi issues and for the kind of money spent, you don't expect to have these problems.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super light and fast, needed updates or wifi wouldn't work The computer boots up very quickly and was reasonably easy to get everything installed on it but the internet signal kept dropping. it needs an update from the VAIO support site to function properly! I spent a lot of time with them on the phone but now this is fixed
