Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPCZ11X9R/B

Sony - Vaio Z review
Source: IT Reviews English
The Sony Vaio Z is a great looking little laptop with lots of alluring features. In the end the battery life lets it down, and the price feels astronomical. But that doesn't stop us wanting one.

13.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display 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.


1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
