I absolutely love my laptop, CS11Z, I have always stuck by Sony and feel that they are a reliable brand. The built in motion eye is fantastic and great visual quality that can easily be synced to applications like Skype which make being on holiday/away on business/away from family members so easy to feel as if you are really with them! I find the laptop rather quick and have had no problem with the speed. It looks so modern, great colouring and the silver trimmings just give it the icing on the cake! The keyboard keys are of a relative size that both my partner and I (who has large hands/fingers) use it with ease. It is so easy to use and very reliable with no problems to date! The volume could be better but we find it capable and frequently watch demand television online with no problems! The screen is a great size not too big not too small and it is very portable!
One of the best Viaos launched in the market and that's saying a lot as all the vaios are amazing pieces of hardware. Do not be put off by the near 900$ tag, this beauty is worth every dime spent on it. Its crazily light weight, almost like you are not carrying a paper notebook and not an electronic one. The display with the new XBRITE is purely amazing as it gives a widely pixelated view of anything you view on it besides having a self adjusting glare screen. So a movie or the latest game is a treat to watch on the big screen. AS perfect student laptop, adaptible to whatever is required, a professional heist or a World of Warcraft dungeon, the inbuilt NVIDIA Ge-Force graphics card simply rocks your world. Which other laptop gives you this eh? Add to this the usual Sony Viao edge over other laptops, a brilliant battery battery back up, choice of glossy colours and the amazing sound quality usually associated wit viaos.
A common criticism of the Sony Vaio range is that they are often considered overpriced for the specifications that they offer. However, the idea is that when you buy a Sony Vaio, you are really paying a premium for the brand, and the securities that come with it.
One area that the Sony does not skimp on (unlike other laptops) is the build quality. The build quality really is exceptional with a solid hinge that does not feel as if it is going to break within a year of purchase. The specifications are solid, if not earth shattering. The inclusion of a NVIDIA graphics card is more of a token gesture given that it is not really strong enough to allow flowing gaming, although if you don't mind the odd shuddery moment, than this should prove sufficient.
The 14.1" TFT widescreen is really crisp and clean and comes with a glossy coating, which makes colours really vivid, although impossible to read outdoors. For normal office work, than the Vaio will prove more than adequate with the inclusion of a Core 2 Duo CPU, and the island style keyboard (as is often seen on the Macbooks) is comfortable to type on for long periods. As per normal laptops, the speakers are functional if nothing else. Battery life on Vaio's are exceptional, and will outperform most laptops of a similar spec.
