VAIO Z Clam 13.3-inch Core i5-6267U Laptop Reviews

Written by

The VAIO Z Clam (clamshell model) laptop is the most powerful 13” laptop that we ever tested over the years. Our test model is VAIO Z Laptop with Intel Core i5-6267U, 8GB Memory, 256GB SSD, Intel Iris Graphics 550 graphics 13.3″ Full HD Display, Windows 10 Home. The VAIO Z came in with an impressive battery life up to 15 hours and 30 min. This is truly the ultimate laptop for the business traveler.

Along with the extraordinary battery life, the VAIO Z also provides excellent performance from the Core i5 processor which all only in a 2.6lb package. This model uses Intel’s Iris graphics which means it’s fast enough to play mainstream games and the 256GB PCIe fast SSD drive uses less power and accesses data more quickly for better performance.

The VAIO Z’s performance was excellent at overall task. You can finish daily tasks like email, web browsing, and word processing with speedy, and even accomplish tougher tasks like video editing at top speed. It was among the fastest on productivity tasks like writing, creating spreadsheets, word processing, web browsing, casual gaming and video chat. You’ll be able to play demanding video games on this system, with smooth graphics and quick response. The sound from the built-in speakers was fair enough and acceptable. You can add speakers or use headphones if you’re looking for the best sound quality.

Built with high-quality materials like aluminum and UD carbon not only give the VAIO Z a luxurious feel but also makes it incredibly thin and light. The VAIO Z gives you portability in the most convenient way possible. The Z is impossibly thin (0.66-inch) and extremely lightweight (2.6-pounds) so, it is a good choice for traveling. At a superb battery life, it can get you through a workday with battery life to spare.

The keyboard, touchpad, labeling and LED indicators were all well-designed, making it comfortable and convenient to use. The full-sized keyboard was pleasant to type on, the touchpad is well positioned on the keyboard, so it’s easy to reach and not prone to interference from arms or wrists.

Very good display quality, Intel’s iris graphics deliver superlative colors, accurately reproduced, rich detail and cleaner lines, realistic, and natural looking. The available WQHD display (2560 x 1440) covers 100% of sRGB. The laptop’s display was brighter than most and it’s anti-reflective, also has a wide viewing angle.

The only downside is there’s no optical drive like a CD or DVD reader, so you’ll have to buy an external drive if you need one and the battery is not easily removable. It comes at a heavy price tag; however, if battery life means everything to you, this thing might be worth the price.
