Review Sony Vaio TZ11XN Notebook

 

Nice Looking with weaknesses. Subnotebooks by Sony are always int ...

Elegant design; Compact and light; Integrated DVD drive; Very bright display, excellent contrast; Acceptable noise and temperature emissions; Passable battery runtime

Some weaknesses regarding workmanship and case robustness; Number of interfaces poor

The sound output through the 3.5mm stereo socket (not a digital signal) was without any anomalies in our test with a headset

This is the year that flash memory, in its various guises, will invade notebook storage. First Intel's Turbo Memory followed by hybrid hard drives (HHDs) with small flash caches and, when prices drop, solid state drives (SSDs)

Attractive, Good HD pictures, Attractive and sleek, Good performance, Impressive battery life

Non-high def material disappoints, Mediocre sound, Dated components

Sony has chosen to stick with the tried and tested, and it's a sensible choice... for now

With the world seemingly obsessed with ever cheaper and cheaper notebooks, it's great to see that Sony has continued to strive for portable perfection with the release of the VAIO VGN-TZ11XN/B. This machine won't satisfy the everyman looking for a...

Super-light, great design, good battery life

Not that powerful, pricey

Sony adds another ultraportable to its range with stunning results – you wouldn’t want it as your sole PC but for carrying around it’s more than satisfactory

Sony Vaio TZ series (VGN-TZ11XN) review

 

Ridiculously pricey, but the VGNTZ11XN/B.CEK is a stunning example of what an ultra-portable laptop should be. It has good battery life, it's highly portable and it's packed with features

Size and weight ; Looks ; Fingerprint reader ; Integrated optical drive

Smallish keyboard ; High price

If you have the cash, however, and care more about DVD playback than 3G, the Vaio TZ series is one of the best ultra-portables we've ever seen

Sony knows a thing or two about making tiny computers, but does the entry-level model in its new TZ range have the pedigree of its predecessors?

If you're after a tiny laptop with considerable talent, the TZ11MN is a very fine buy

Sony has raised the bar again with an ultra-portable notebook to die for!

Sony has built on the good points of the TX Series but also taken some inspiration from the iconic X505VP and produced a truly stunning ultra-portable notebook. Sony has mastered the LED backlight technology and created the best notebook screen I’ve...

Sony has certainly pushed the limits with the TZ11 and the result is generally extreme in every department.

Product Specifications

Weighing just 1.19 kilos including battery and drive, the ultra light TZ-Series is a masterpiece of mobility. This is a notebook that's designed to travel with a razor-thin 11.1" widescreen display and postcard-sized motherboard. The luxurious looking TZ-Series is more than strong enough to take the rough and tumble of life on the road. Full top and bottom carbon fiber construction protects the notebook from knocks and shocks while the unique battery hinge design ensures excellent durability. Power-saving LED illumination gives long battery life of up to 7 hours. Just look at the slender TZ-Series and you will understand why this notebook redefines luxurious computing. Its full flat and cylinder design ensures a product that is extremely slim and strong for easily carrying around from place to place. The flat top of the notebook projects out from the hinge to create a streamlined profile that combines with minimalist styling for a striking visual appearance. TZ-Series include a variety of design innovations for breath-taking looks, resilience and ease of use. The smooth curves and buttons of the keyboard make for effortless typing while the high grade finish of the keyboard panel recalls the calmness of submerged stones in a water garden.
