Every Vaio Z Canvas comes standard with a detachable keyboard cover and a battery-powered active stylus.
The keyboard is wireless, so you can use it and the stylus simultaneously at any angle of your choice.
The full 47W Core i7 processor includes Intel's most powerful Iris Pro graphics, which Vaio claims is enough to speed through Adobe Creative Suite, Maya and other pro multimedia editing software.
The 2,560x1,704-pixel IPS display is bright and vibrant, with wide viewing angles, a 3:2 aspect ratio, and 95 percent Adobe RGB color gamut.
There's plenty of ports, including two USB 3.0 sockets, a full-size, full-depth SD card reader, a full-size HDMI port and Mini DisplayPort that can power two external 4K displays, and a wired Ethernet jack.
The stylus clips right onto the side of the tablet with an optional (but included) clip.
The kickstand allows you to prop up the Z Canvas display at any angle between upright and completely flat.
The spring-loaded hinge, unofficially dubbed the "Magic Hinge" by Vaio, resists your press, and yet lets you lift up the tablet with a fingertip.
The 12.3-inch tablet weighs 2.7 pounds without the keyboard and 3.4 pounds with it.
The detachable keyboard is pretty thin and flat.
