Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-TT11WN/B
Source: PC Advisor
Sony's take on the ultraportable market is represented by the Sony VAIO VGN-TT11WN, an 11in screen notebook weighing at just over 1.3kg. The Sony VAIO VGN-TT11WN has got a very high price tag, but this is partially explained by the inclusion of an internal 3G modem for mobile internet access. For the money, we’d expect first-rate build quality and performance, yet the Sony VAIO VGN-TT11WN fails to deliver on the former, while startling us in some respects with the latter. Screen quality and battery life are both unparalleled by any other notebook we've tested.

Sony is well known for making highly desirable ultraportable notebooks, with the TZ11 range in particular being held in the number one spot by many people. Now Sony has brought out an updated model range, the TT, an ultraportable which is so compact that at first glance looks like a netbook. A stylish ultraportable with superb build quality and a good feature set, but for the hefty price we would expect to see an even better set of features, i.e. more USB ports, a better webcam and more powerful graphics.

If you need an ultra-portable notebook and find the 13.3in alternatives, like the ThinkPad X300, too much to handle the Sony VAIO TT is still the best option out there. Yet, despite its manifest qualities, it's an option that comes at too high a cost; delivering mediocre performance compared to its price point. Thus, unless Sony makes its pricing a little more realistic or money is simply no object for you, we couldn't recommend it without pause.

The VAIO TT really does offer road warriors that perfect mixture of performance, battery and portability. As well as the Bluetooth and WiFi draft-n, Sony offer a Sprint EV-DO Rev.A WWAN option (for a $59.99 monthly fee); work while you travel and then, when you’re at the hotel, plug the TT in to the TV and watch a movie rather than paying for the usual lousy selection. Vista is a chore but, courtesy of the SSDs, it’s at least manageable. What might be less so is the price. Most people would call the entry level TT expensive; the superlative-spec VGN-TT190UBX topples that over into astronomical.

While the high price of the Sony VAIO VGN-TT11WN/B puts it into an elite group of ownership, its style, resilience, battery life and features make it one of the best ultraportables we've seen. This may well prove to be the perfect laptop for the frequent business traveller.

Sony's TZ-range of ultraportable laptops has long been a favourite in PC Pro's offices, but its reign on our A-list was finally brought to an end by Lenovo's stunning ThinkPad X300. Now, however, we've laid our hands on Sony's latest update to the TZ range, the all-new TT. It's gorgeous, but it can't match Sony's own Z-series for sheer ultraportable excellence

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
SU9300: Power efficient low voltage processor based on the Penryn 3M core that features all Penryn functions like Virtualization and Trusted Execution.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
