Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-G11VN/T

80% Sony goes small, but does it still impress?

We’ve always been big fans of the Sony S Series, so we were always going to be the hardest people to please with the Sony VAIO VGN-G11VN/T. It’s a great laptop but there is a deal of compromise to be had to get it to the weight and size it is. It’s a good laptop but we’re sure by the time it gets to version three it’ll be a great laptop.

Sony takes its ultraportables seriously. Every potential weight saving is pursued with tigerish fervour, and the result is this: a 1.13kg notebook that not only includes a DVD writer, but also lasted for an astonishing 8hrs 30mins in our battery tests. With some incredible design and amazing battery life, the G11 is a tempting mobile option.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.1 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
