Like you, we live to exceed expectations
Most manufactures use a common set of durability standards. At VAIO, we always look to push the performance of our products to the limit. With that in mind, we designed the VAIO Z to be tested against the stricter MIL standard (MIL-STD-810H) established by the U.S. Department of Defense.
As a result, the VAIO Z is designed to survive unscathed after a fall from over 50 inches (127 centimeters), well above the 90 cm standard most manufactures use.
the secret to VAIO Z´s durability lies with the revolutionary carbon fiber chasis, which offers more than twice the specific elastic modulus of conventional materials, such s aluminium and magnesium.
We hope that your VAIO Z will never take abuse – but if life sends the unexpected your way, you can take comfort in knowing you’re protected boy the strongest light weighting laptop ever built.
