Sony Vaio VPCS11V9E/B review

Light weight for size of screen. Keyboard lights up in dull light. Easy to carry around in a rucksack. Very fast processor

Bit heavier than previous model which detracts from its overall value as a super lightweight laptop

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 ; Battery...

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
