Like the Surface Pro this tablet has a stepless kickstand and comes with both a detachable keyboard and active stylus. The stylus offers 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity and there is minimal parallax thanks to the optical resin bonded screen display.

The VAIO Z Canvas employs an Intel Core i7-4770HQ running at 2.2GHz (3.4GHz boost) with 4 cores/8 threads and including Iris Pro Graphics 5200. In terms of connectivity specs, it include Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 × 2, HDMI 1.4 output, Mini DisplayPort, audio output, IEEE 802.11ac /a/b/g/n wireless LAN , Bluetooth 4.0, SD card slot and TPM 1.2.

The device measures 301 × 213 × 13.6 mm and weighs 1.21Kg without the keyboard accessory which is 4.4mm thick and weighs 340g. The slate rung on Windows 8.1 operating system.

The top model of VAIO Z Canvas (cost $3,300) consists of 16GB (dual-channel) RAM and SSD 1TB (PCIe 512GB × 2).
