Sony VAIO VPC-W11S1E review

 

Will Sony's VAIO W series netbooks fill the hole that the VAIO P didn't?

Gorgeous screen ; Great design and build ; Lots of connectivity

Still not that cheap ; Battery life could be better

Sony have made a great netbook that keeps all the best elements of their larger notebooks, but it keeps the slightly premium price too

Sony Vaio W11S1E/T review

 

As you'd expect from Sony, the Vaio W11S1E/T has gorgeous styling.

Gorgeous styling and a detailed widescreen display, but battery life is poor and the keyboard is frustrating to type on.

Review: Sony Vaio Mini W Series – VPCW11S1E

 

The Vaio Mini W-Series is Sony's first official entry into the netbook market. Initially priced at around £350-400, the VPCW11S1E was certainly in the higher ranges of expense for a mini-notebook, however: the price has become much cheaper of late and...

There’s nothing really wrong with the Sony Vaio VPCW11S1E, but apart from the great quality of the screen, there’s nothing to separate it from some of its rivals. The initial price-point was way too high to justify and it is good that retailers (or...

Sony Vaio W11S1E/W

 

The VAIO W-series is Sony's first attempt at a netbook, and comes around two years after Asus released the first Eee PC. Has the wait been worth it, or has the market truly moved on in the meantime? In terms of style, the Vaio W has a strong family...

Lovely screen, good quality and a comfortable choice. The mini-laptop styling is attractive and functional, and if battery life isn't an issue then it's well worth a look

Poor battery life, steep-ish price, no 3G/HSDPA

Sony Vaio VPC-W11S1E

 

Small, lightweight go anywhere portability, looks good, nice keyboard.

Battery life could have been made a lot better. Not being able to use a standard charger and having to use a Sony one which costs the earth. Keep getting a blue screen which leads me having to switch off and on agian to get rid. Only two USB ports.
