The online configuration tool on Sony's website in addition also provides three further designs: Blue, gold, and premium carbon.

Carbon is the material used by Sony to achieve the best possible performance to weight ratio. The Sony Vaio VPCZ21BGXB Intel Wireless Bluetooth manufacturer declares an official thickness of 1. We measured to make sure: Optically the case can definitely make a good impression: Elegant, simple, understatement par excellence would be fitting. When it comes to handling the device it quickly becomes obvious though that we are dealing with a plastic case in the sub euros class. The satin surfaces are good at concealing finger prints and dust particles, and definitely feel qualitative. Paint problems, uneven gaps, or even a wobbly battery? Sony has been known for not always taking the precision of the battery size too seriously in the past. This shortcoming was however obviously avoided intentionally with these high-end models.

Compared to its counterparts in the 13 inch segment, such as the MacBook Air or the Samsungs X3Awith which the battery can either not be removed or only after taking apart the case warranty?

Changing this is therefore possible, but only with a lot of effort. The remaining components cannot be accessed however, with the exception of taking apart the whole case.

What for though, Sony Vaio VPCZ21BGXB Intel Wireless Bluetooth RAM is soldered in place - which prevents any further future upgrades. And also the Solid State Drive has a special format which prevents an easy exchange. Those that want to take a look at the inside of the Vaio VPC-Z21 anyway can do that by watching this video. Before we continue, just another quick note regarding the case: The attractive optical appearance and high quality feel aren't quite matched by the stability of the case. The base unit can easily be dented somewhat by a little pressure in the area around the palm resting area, as well as the keyboard wireless switch. This becomes more apparent when it comes to the display.


The lid of the only 5 millimeter thin component may not let any pressure through to the sensitive display panel, but it can be warped easily. Merely two fingers are enough to create a lot of bending.

The left side is primarily occupied by the generously sized cooling vent. The VGA port in the rear region attests how close the case is to its limits when it comes to thickness.

At first glance the interface for the Power Dock is not discernible from that of a conventional USB port, this wouldn't allow the concept to work though. When taking a closer look, two small optical elements as well as the appropriate counterparts can be seen in the USB 3. Thus we are dealing with one of the first series production notebooks with an incorporated optical interface technology, which is based on Intel's Thunderbolt previously Light Peak technology, even if adapted by Sony for a proprietary solution. The current Apple notebooks may also use this technology, but this still uses a copper circuit data transfer route which can be implemented much more cheaply. At present Intel prefers the Mini DisplayPort as standard, and thus future accessories will likely not be compatible for users of the Sony Z21 with the Thunderbolt interface.

An important point in the press release for the VPC-Z21 is the possible multi-monitor operation, with up to 4 displays including the notebook display itself. The first thing we did was to test the VGA port directly on the notebook with a Dell Wfp monitor using the maximum resolution x The result doesn't really make a convincing impression. The displayed images may still be sufficient for working, but when looking closely Sony Vaio VPCZ21BGXB Intel Wireless Bluetooth writing in particular is slightly unfocused. Further to this we also noticed a slight flickering on the monitor. We compared the HDMI port with the same external display: The picture is sharp as expected, and the flickering is also gone.


We repeated the test with the two ports on the Power Dock with the same result: Altogether the HDMI Sony Vaio VPCZ21BGXB Intel Wireless Bluetooth are therefore definitely preferable. With a total of three monitors in the maximum-configuration, at least one VGA port has to be used though. This situation is however more likely to be an exception rather than the usual scenario.
