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 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.

Sony Vaio Mini W series (VPCW11S1E) review


Attempting to create a premium version of a netbook, Sony has added a high-definition display to the Vaio Mini W series VPCW11S1E. It's an attractive package, but the internal components are the same as in cheaper models

High-quality construction and design ; High-resolution display

Poor battery life ; Pricey ; Smallish keyboard ; Loud fan

The VPCW11S1E ran for 2 hours and 19 minutes in our video-playback battery-drain test, using the included three-cell battery. That's disappointing for a netbook, especially as these are systems designed for on-the-road use. Our battery drain test is...

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 Mini W series (VPCW11S1E)


My parents bought me this one after my high school graduation. I insisted on this one cause I usually think minis are cool and easy to bring around, not minding the fuss carrying an enormous and heavy laptop, instead of them wanting to buy me an Acer...

Very Portable, Sleek, Adorable, has a high class manufacturer (of course, it's VAIO)

VERY SLOW. Graphics and Performance lags VERY much when you're a gamer. Probably would regret buying this one

Sony Vaio Mini W series (VPCW11S1E)


I bought it a month ago, mine is the new one with 8 hours battery life, Windows 7 starter. I am very disappointed. The resolution is ok, but the touch pad is jumping all over the time, I hate the battery because I can't put the machine in a normal...

Looks great

touch pad, form of the battery, works slow
