Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-NR11Z
Source: PC Advisor
The Sony Vaio NR11 Z is a portable, functional notebook, available in silver or brown. The silver Sony Vaio NR11 Z looks striking and, for a budget notebook costing just £649, offers great performance in most areas. The brown version is similar, but it's, well, brown. If you want an affordable and attractive laptop that doesn’t cut back on performance, you won't go far wrong with the Sony Vaio NR11 Z. With the exception of a low gaming framerate score and a slightly washed out display, we like the usability, design and specifications of the Sony Vaio NR11 Z. It's well priced and has potential as both an everyday and multimedia machine.

CommentIntel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
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.
