The hinge lets it open up to 180 degrees. As per VAIO, the display of the VAIO Z can be opened and closed with one hand — without touching its palm rest. It runs Windows 10 Pro. Under the hood lies an Intel Core i7 processor, along with Intel Iris Xe graphics and up to 32GB of LPDDR4 RAM. You get up to 2TB of PCIe SSD storage.
