Sony VAIO VGN-FW11ZU review

 

Technology-followers will remember the format war that kept the pundits guessing even less than one year ago, when two rival formats were vying for our high-def attention. Sony was the inventor of the Blu-ray format, while Toshiba was behind the HD DVD...

With a 2.53GHz processor, the Sony VAIO VGN-FW11ZU should be a nippy machine, and the ATI graphics card allows the use of some modern games. Blu-ray playback was short of expectation though, especially given Sony's weight behind the format.

Sony have refreshed their popular VAIO laptop range with four new models. Three are aimed a business users, a new departure for the company we all know for its consumer electronics. This one, though, is designed more for the living room than the boardroom

The Audi TT of laptops. Great spec and build quality, though not the lightest or cheapest.

The Sony VGN-FW11ZU is one of Sony's latest Notebooks to hit the market. It has 4GB of installed memory and is equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.35 GHz processor. This laptop has a comfortable 41cm display and installed with a Microsoft Windows Vista...

Sony brings us the full high-def experience in this reasonably lightweight laptop that pitches up with a 16.4-inch screen with a true 16:9 aspect ratio screen, meaning no annoying borders when watching movies. And you will watch them! See, there is a...

Weighing just 3kg, this is a portable machine but couldn't quite squeeze three hours from the battery, which limits its usability away from mains power. The biggest bugbear is the performance. Sure, it’s got a high-end dual-core processor and 4GB of...

This laptop is a bit hit and miss - we love the widescreen display and the Blu-ray drive makes it a seductive on-the-go entertainer, but you’ll find the performance isn’t as OTT as the cutting-edge components list would have you believe.

Plenty of laptops arrive at PC Pro with entertainment in mind, but few are as capable or well-featured as the new Sony VAIO VGN-FW11ZU. It's one of the first machines of any kind - desktops included - that we've seen with a Blu-ray writer, for...

Quick, packed full of features and boasting a 16:9 high definition display, but it's too expensive for its own good.

Sony's latest rings the changes: Centrino 2, a 16:9 display and Blu-ray for just over £1,000. Mike Jennings takes a closer look.
