Sony Vaio S series (VPCS11V9E/B) review


The Sony Vaio S-series VPCS11V9E/B laptop is a great all-rounder. It may only have a 13.3-inch display, but its fast CPU and graphics card, as well as its comfortable keyboard, make it a respectable replacement for a desktop PC

Good performance ; Handy integrated 3G modem ; Backlit keyboard for lights-out computing

Uninspiring design ; Mediocre screen resolution

Sony Vaio VPCS11V9E/B review


The release of Intel's Core i3 and i5 processors is likely to provoke a significant scrabble among laptop manufacturers to release a swathe of top-end, fast laptops. We review the Sony Vaio VPCS11V9E/B to find out what it's made of.

Sony Vaio S series (VPCS11V9E/B)


I would estimate battery life as being a little better than than the formal review - lets say 2-3 hrs - probably more if setup to do so. Firstly, the battery only charges to 80% to lengthen its life, this can be set to 100%. The CPU can also be set to...

Raw power, display, keyboard

It doesn't last 10hrs on battery

Sony Vaio VPC-S11V9E


I have been using this laptop for the last three months. I am so happy with it. the performance is more than enough for the type of work I do. The design, weight and size are fantastic and make it perfect choice for business and entertainment ;...

Edges are sharp and stiff. could do with smoother edges ; Biometeric fingerprint scanner freezes sometimes ; A lot of unneeded software preinstalled slows the start up
