Review Sony Vaio VGN-P11Z/R Mini-Notebook

 

Don't call it a netbook!" Sony launches a "PC system" of a speci

Optically very chic; Various colors to choose from; Good workmanship; Very compact and handy; Extensive communication features; Display with a very high resolution; Quiet use

Weak performance; Money for value ratio; Right shift key too small; Fluctuating display illumination

We wouldn't see the huge netbook category as direct competition for the Sony VGN-P11Z, especially because the ultra-compact PC plays price-wise in a completely different league. It competes more with high quality subnotebooks being short of 1000.00...

Sony Vaio VGN-P11Z/W notebook review

 

The boom in netbooks over the past year has seen nearly every laptop manufacturer release at least one model, with Sony and Apple the two noteable exceptions. Instead, Sony has produced the P-series - a netbook-sized, Intel Atom powered, highly...

Incredible size, impressive keyboard, high resolution screen

Hugely pricey, budget components

The P-series is a surprisingly usable proposition, and built-in 3G makes it a great out of office tool, but it costs a lot for what’s on offer

Sony Vaio VGN-P11Z

 

Of course the design, and being able to comfortably handle the thing. A very useable keyboard and screen, though the nipple/pointer/screen resolution can be a challenge now and again. Handy little features too, though these are available elsewhere, so...

Battery life when you want to run it tricked out media-wise ; Getting the right OS/software/driver setup for media playback. A seriously shocking experience
