Review Sony Vaio VPC-Z21Q9E/B Subnotebook

 

Perfect shortcomings. It almost sounds like a fairy tale when it comes to what Sony has created with the new Z models: An extremely thin 13.1 inch subnotebook weighing a mere 1.2 kilograms, that provides as much performance as a large notebook, and...

All the above

2 keys have stuck and I need to get it mended. Less than a year old and very annoying. Not covered under warranty.

Works well and performs as you would hope. Had it for about 18 months and it has, and continues, to serve me well.

Upgrade to Windows 8 and it continues to work well - even quicker and smother but the Radeon graphics on the DVD drive no longer function, not a problem really but still annoying. Needs a hybrid driver and Sony don't seem to be producing one

It is stylish and light. I suppose that its performance is good.

It never worked.

excellent design, lightweight, SSD provides super fast boot time.

Would have been better if the high performance grafix card was inbuilt into the laptop rather than having to connect the dock
