Centrino 2 Kino. The Sony Vario FW11M is one of the currently

Blu ray drive; 16:9 high resolution display; Design; Extensive software additions

moderate display brightness; mediocre workmanship

Gamers and users who want to use the notebook outside should pick one of the stronger models with Dual Lamp Technology (e.g. FW11ZU).

Sony VAIO VGN-BZ11MN notebook


We've seen plenty of top-quality ultraportables from Sony's VAIO range, and it's easy to forget about larger, more mainstream options such as the latest BZ range. However, if you're looking for something a little more affordable, the VAIO BZ-11MN could...

Affordable, all-day battery life, premium materials, comfortable interface

Limited 3D performance and average specification

With an average specification, it’s easy to dismiss the BZ11MN, and go hunting for more powerful rivals. Do so at your own peril, however, as it’s actually an excellent choice for the business user seeking a larger machine.

Sony - VAIO BZ-11MN


Sony is well known for producing a whole host of stylish VAIO notebooks for home users, but maybe not so well known is its range of business notebooks, the BZ-11MN being the latest. Whereas the consumer ...

A no-nonsense, well-built business notebook with a good blend of performance and features, although it would be good if the screen had a higher resolution and the 160GB hard drive wasn't so full of pre-installed software; that may be fine on a home...

Sony VGN-FW11M P8400


Excellent display quality which is reflected when connected to an HD ready television by HDMI. Quick and easy set up.

A little bulky, but that is to be expected because of the screen size. The battery life on the standard battery supplied is not bad, but could be better.
