It has been a while since we heard about VAIO’s activities in our market. Yes, the brand is indeed still active in Malaysia and is recently taking pre-orders for its new 2021 VAIO Z Signature Edition ultralight laptop.
Originally announced to the world last month, the 2021 VAIO Z made its way into the headlines thanks to its status as the world’s first full carbon-fibre laptop. It is also one of the first laptops to adopt the equally new Intel Core i7-11375H which is part of the 11th Gen Intel Core H35 Series of processors that were designed for a new class of gaming laptop that Intel refers to as the ultraportable.
Despite that though, the 2021 VAIO Z is not a gaming laptop especially given the fact that it does not carry discrete graphics. Other hardware that has been equipped into the 2021 VAIO Z in Malaysia includes a 14-inch 4K display, 32GB RAM, a 2TB solid state drive, a smudge-proof backlit keyboard with a 1.5mm travel distance, a built-in slider cover for its 2.0MP webcam, and 53Whr battery.
As for its pricing, the 1.06kg 2021 VAIO Z Signature Edition can be pre-ordered in Malaysia for RM 18,088. The brand didn’t mention the exact rollout date for the new laptop in our market but it has been noted in VAIO Malaysia’s online store that customers should receive their laptop within two to three days after they have pre-ordered it.
