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 VPC-W11S1E/T notebook review


First thing's first – if you're expecting the Sony VAIO W-series to be a super-budget Acer Aspire One rival, you'll be disappointed. It isn't, but accept it for what it is – a pricey but highly portable netbook – and there's a chance you may just get...

Great screen, excellent design and quality, comfortable

Battery life, pricey, average specification

A stylish netbook offering great quality and comfort, along with the best screen we’ve seen on a netbook to date. It’s expensive, however, and battery life is poor

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


For my requirements/preferences - downsizing from tower pc (slow, outdated, cumbersome) the portability / flexibility of this model suit very well. I have retained my 19" LCD monitor so can alternate modes of working (docked or 'solo') and retain the...

Working solo, I would prefer some element of tilt ; The battery-life is less than on some models, but design, colour (I chose brown) and the fact that I do not ever need extensive usage remote from a power-source made this acceptable for my usage needs
