Microsoft's entry to the premium laptop market started with the introduction of the 13 Inch Surface Book, and VAIO wants in on the game too.
At $1,800 USD their VAIO Z Flip will feature a 13 inch screen touch screen at a crystal clear 2560 by 1440 IPS panel for great color reproduction. Along with an INTEL i7 and 16 gigs of DDR4, this laptop is sure to bring Ultrabook like speeds with elegant design.
Coming in at $1,499 USD the cheaper version of the VAIO Z Flip will feature a 1920 by 1080 IPS panel, an INTEL i5 and a suspected 8 gigs of ram. The biggest difference being the lack of a touch screen.
Both have an expected 10-11 hour battery life, windows 10 included. And both versions are expected to have upgrade availability which can include an M.2 SSD and more storage options.
As a sub $2,000 USD laptop VAIO is entering their Ultrabook at an extremely competitive price point compared to Microsoft's Surface Book. With a great design and a more competitive price point everything looks quite promising. Both models are expected to be purchasable next month.
