VAIO recently debuted the innovative new VAIO Z flagship model laptop, featuring a three-dimensional molded carbon fiber body weighing under 2.3 lbs.

The VAIO Z laptop utilized Uni-Direction carbon-fiber, a non-woven type of carbon fiber material with all the fibers running in a single direction. The process allows for the shape to maximize rigidity while drawing out the carbon fiber’s main characteristics. Due to the lightweight and unique nature of carbon fiber, the laptop was wrapped in an extremely light material while remaining durable as opposed to an aluminum casing.
