Vaio Z Flip vs Microsoft Surface Book:(Comparison)

Vaio Z Flip                                                                                                                                             The new Vaio Z Flip, an ultrathin 13-inch laptop. It's a 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel that's easy to read at most any angle, and doubles as a responsive touchscreen. Pictures, websites and games look great since the screen can display 100 percent of the SRGB color spectrum, delivering pure and vibrant color.The Vaio Z Flip has exceptional performance for a thin and light laptop, a crisp high-resolution screen and an attractive, functional design. This 2.95 lb. 2-in-1 laptop is a real powerhouse with 6th generation Intel dual core 28 watt CPUs and Intel Iris 550 graphics that are significantly more powerful than standard 15 watt/ Intel HD 520 graphics Ultrabook fare. it comes with an N-Trig digitizer and pen for notes and art. It has a strong aluminum and carbon fiber casing and a brilliant hinge design. The WQHD 2560 x 1440 is color accurate and easy on the eyes. The only catch? It's expensive.  The VAIO Z comes with Intel's 6th-generation 28W Skylake processor and a miniaturized motherboard. The extra room allows for fans and a larger battery: VAIO promises up to 11.5 hours of use on the flip model, Vaio said the model without a touchscreen, because it still features a Z-engine configuration and doesn’t need expend additional processing power for touchscreen, should last for up to a record-shattering 15.5 hours. While convertible viewing options and a touchscreen theoretically make the Z a more versatile, one-man-army of a device, an equally powerful laptop with super-charged battery life might make the less expensive model the better choice for power users.
but,Display is high-powered, but did not instantly impress.
Battery life in this expensive system is just adequate, not great. Loud fans and an overly glossy screen detract from the experience too.
THE BOTTOM LINE The Vaio Z seems poised to excel as a luxury object, regardless of whether or not it’s the best laptop on the market, but its price tag will certainly demand a high standard.For those willing to pay top dollar for a stylish, functional, highly portable PC, the Vaio Z Flip is impressive -- but you might do better with a Lenovo Yoga 900, MacBook Pro or Microsoft Surface Book.                                        Price:$1799
VS                                                                                                                                                         Microsoft Surface Book                                                                                                                             The Microsoft Surface Book packs high-end components, including new Intel processors and optional Nvidia graphics, into a smart, slim body. Some components and most of the battery are hidden in the base, so the tablet half is lighter. The high-res screen looks great, and the included stylus pen is excellent.               The Surface Book has 13.5-inch display offers 3,000 x 2,000 resolution for 267ppi. Microsoft also uses its new PixelSense technology which essentially means a very thin, closely bonded, glass screen for super responsive touch and stylus controls. The Surface Book, also all metal, offers a detachable screen that doubles as a tablet. But this has meant a slight increase in thickness to nearly 23mm when closed. The Surface Book display offers sixth-gen Intel Core i5 and i7 chip 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage. While the tablet part of the Surface Book is limited to the Intel HD Graphic 520, there is a separate GPU in the keyboard section. This is an Nvidia GeForce processor with 1GB of GDDR5 memory. The Surface Book offers plenty of connectivity options that vary and may appeal to different people's needs. The Surface Book offers two USB 3.0 ports and full microSD. The MacBook features an HDMI port where the Surface Book is limited to a Mini Display Port and using a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.                         The Surface Book is no ordinary Surface, sporting a sleek, all-silver, magnesium design with a unique, flexible hinge designed to keep the laptop's removable display from getting too wobbly. But while Microsoft mostly knocks it out of the park with its first laptop, the device is still a bit top-heavy, and opening the lid is more difficult than we'd like.  Microsoft’s Surface Book offers SSD storage options of 128 GB/256 GB/512 GB/1 TB. It also comes with a microSD slot. The new Microsoft tablet cum laptop hybrid bears an 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP primary camera and will run on latest Windows 10.                                                 Microsoft is downplaying the Surface Book as a tablet by calling it "clipboard mode," but you can remove the Surface Book's screen to use as a humongous slate. This should be a big upgrade over the Surface Pro 3, as both the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 have big glass trackpads – a lot like Apple's MacBooks.      Battery life
Battery life on the Surface Book is both pretty good and surprisingly disappointing. While Microsoft has promised 12 hours of continual usage and other outlets report getting even more juice out of the machine, our best time for the device was 7 hours and 39 minutes. As for the Clipboard on its own, the tablet can last for 4 hours.
While these are more than respectable numbers considering all the hardware inside the Surface Book, I honestly expected a much longer run time. The good news is this notebook recharges quickly, going from zero to 100% charge in under two hours.
But,Configurations with the optional Nvidia GPU and more storage get very expensive. There are some first-generation quirks, including an awkward gap between the screen and base when closed.
THE BOTTOM LINE While it's not nearly as refined as the new fourth-gen Surface Pro, Microsoft's Surface Book is a powerful, feature-filled premium hybrid that doesn't forget it's a laptop first.                       Price:$1499.00
