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...

The Sony Vaio AW11Z/B is Sony's largest Vaio, and a very good-looking laptop indeed.

Sony VGN-AW11Z review

 

When it comes to design, Sony doesn't have the same rep as a company like Apple. Which is a shame, as the Sony VAIO VGN-AW11Z manages to do the same multimedia tasks as a MacBook, look just as pretentious when pulled out in Starbucks and let you frag...

For a middling price, you get a middling gaming laptop (4 gigs of DDR2 RAM), but a couple of nice perks thrown in. Perhaps surprisingly for a Sony product, the VGN-AW11 is hands down the most stylish model we tested. The black casing is unobtrusive and...

Like the other 18 incher on test, the AW11Z doesn't pack a top end graphics card. It comes with a decent enough NVIDIA 9600M GT but if you trade down to the AW11M/H model, you'll save money but you won't get far trying to play Far Cry 2 on a 9300M card

Sony VGN-AW11Z/B

 

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.

Sony Vaio VGN-AW11Z/B

 

Graphics are excellent and hard drive has plenty of storage

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