Could the Vaio Z Flip laptop be worth all that money?
[SOUND] What would get you to pay $1800 for a laptop?
It'd have to be pretty special, no?
That's what the now Vaio Z is trying for.
Yes, it looks just like the old Sony Vaio flip from two years ago, but this new computer is about more than a neat folding touch screen.
How much power do you think a computer company can cram into a computer this thin and light?
I was impressed when I found out.
Underneath this sleek aluminum keyboard deck is one of the most powerful processors you can find inside a laptop.
Where most thin laptops have a 15 watt CPU that runs at about 2 GHz, The VAIO has a 3.3 gigahertz, 28 watt chip.
That's the same class of CPU you'll find inside Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pro, only that machine is notably thicker and a half pound heavier.
Then there's all the little touches that VAIO includes to make this feel like a premium PC.
I really like the new quiet keyboard which has a smudge free coating that resists my finger prints.
The Vio Z doesn't fuss around with tiny hard to use sockets.
You get full size HDMI, USB, and a nice deep SD card slot.
Every Vio Z also comes with a VGA adaptor.
Plus a stylus pen for taking handwritten notes and making annotations on the touch screen.
1800 bucks is a heck of a lot of money for a laptop.
I can't afford one myself, but the VAIO Z does have features you won't find anywhere else.
