Review Sony Vaio VGN-NW11 Notebook


The Secret's in the Mix. Sony sees its Vaio NW11 as a chic and el

Elegant design with a wave pattern; Adequate application and gaming performance; Perfect workmanship; Connectivity

Connection positioning; Keyboard, case and display lid partially yield; Reflective, pallid and contrast poor display; Mediocre sound

Halfway efficient multimedia or all-round notebooks under 1100 Euros, like the Acer Aspire 5739G, the Acer Aspire 5536G, the Asus N51V, the Asus M60VP, the Toshiba A500-15H or the Dell Studio 1555.

Sony VAIO VGN-NW11S/S - 15.5in Laptop


Sony's new mainstream laptop is hard wearing and adds a quick access web browser to its armoury.

Unlike other implementations, which feature a selection of applications, Sony has opted for just the web browser. It's not a bad idea either, since eliminating the other applications reduces the boot time even further (less than 30 seconds from cold to...

Sony Vaio VGN-NW11Z/S review


Is there an Apple in Sony's eye?

A handsome laptop ; Lovely screen

Too expensive ; Mediocre battery

Aesthetes will love the VAIO's design, but gamers are better off with lower-profile brands

Sony Vaio NW11S/S review


The NW11S/S's case has a wavy texture that almost looks like wood grain.

A funky design and great 3D performance make this a decent laptop, but it's let down by a slightly washed-out display and a fairly high price.

Sony Vaio VGN-NW11Z


The worst laptop I have ever used. It is now deceased and the fabulous online recovery tools do not work at all. Total waste of money and I would never buy this manufacturer's products again. I will stick to Dell in future

Sony Vaio VGN-NW11S


Nice design. Unusual finish and looks great in brown. Screen is clear and the keyboard has a positive feel.

Too much bloatware. After 15 months, the laptop seems to be overheating and, as it's now out of warranty, will need to be returned to the manufacturer because it keeps switching itself off and sometimes it just won't start. It's sold as a laptop, but...

Sony Vaio VGN-NW11S


Looks great, nice big screen, full keyboard.

Keeps crashing/ freezing/ having problems, had a completely new everything (except exterior) but it feels like it's going to go again soon (a few mini-freezes) which is how it started. Also one design point- you can't open it with one hand like you can...

Sony Vaio VGN-NW11S


Lovely keyboard design. Works as fast as any Vista machine can with the right specification.

Casing is very easily scratched. Mine is the silver model and just putting it in and out of the case has cause the top to scratch. Now I don't bother with the case as it can't really look any worse than it does now. Although this is a good and fast...
