Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-TZ

80% Sony Vaio TZ10MN/N ultraportable laptop
Source: Tech Advisor English Archive.org version
The Sony Vaio TZ10MN/N is a stylish, dinky laptop, with a display just 11in from corner to corner.
It isn't a quick performer and the price tag is intimidating, but if you need a very light laptop with the battery life to see you through hours of work, the Sony Vaio TZ10MN/N may just be your best choice.
The Sony Vaio TZ10MN/N fires up within just a few seconds, revealing an extremely bright and vibrant screen. The Balanced screen mode prolongs the already excellent battery – we got an excellent three hours' use, with nearly twice that in power-saving mode. Sony supplies only a 1.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, backed by 2GB of DDR RAM and a 100GB drive. This combination powered the Sony Vaio TZ10MN/N to a rather lowly WorldBench 6 speed score of 40 points.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.


U7500: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.10":

This is a standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.

Sony: Sony Corporation is one of the largest Japanese electronics companies. The company was founded in 1946 under a different name and initially produced rice stoves. The company launched the first transistor radio. In 1958, the company was renamed Sony. Sony is a combination of the Latin word sonus (sound) and the English word sonny (little boy). Today, its core business is consumer electronics. The company is engaged in the development, design, manufacture and sale of electronic equipment, instruments, devices, game consoles and software. Sony operates in the following segments: Gaming and Network Services, Music, Images, Home Entertainment and Sound, Imaging Products and Solutions, Mobile Communications, Semiconductors, Financial Services and Others.


80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
