Sony Vaio AW11Z/B review

 

The Sony Vaio AW11Z/B's design is simple - black with a silver trim in this case, with only the usual PC-laptop flair of logos spoiling it a little.

We were very impressed with the great design of the Sony Vaio AW11Z/B and its relatively light weight meant it was practical to transport. You get a lot of laptop for your money, but we weren't convinced by the quality of the screen and found the...

Is the desktop replacement dead? By the looks of this behemoth, Sony certainly doesn't think so.

With all the attention lavished on netbooks and swanky ultraportables these days, it would be easy to discount desktop replacements as a thing of the past. But, for some people, a desktop replacement is all the home PC they need. Indeed, if you want...

Sony's latest AW-series blends a huge, 16:9 display with desktop PC levels of performance.

Graphics are excellent and hard drive has plenty of storage

Rather heavy and big and more of a table top than lap top
