Sony VGN-TZ11XN/B laptop

Gimme, gimme. Wait... is that the price or my phone number?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Review Sony has certainly pushed the limits with the TZ11 and the result is generally extreme in every department. Extremely thin, extremely light, extremely long battery life...and an extremely high price tag.

Nice lines: the Sony VGN-TZ11XN/B

The photos of the Vaio VGN-TZ11XN/B show a classic, smart Sony laptop, but they don’t give any sense of just how tiny it is. The TZ11 is 27.7cm wide (that’s under 11 inches) 19.8cm deep (less than eight inches) and it’s 3cm thick at the back of the chassis where the battery clips on. Move to the front and the chassis measures an anorexic 2.55cm thick.

The most startling figure from the specification is the 1.19kg weight, which is thanks in part to the small chassis and also to the judicious use of carbon fibre in the base and lid. Add in a mere 400g for the power brick and mains cord and you should have no trouble finding room in your hand luggage for the TX11.

By definition a small chassis has a small screen so the TX11 gets an 11.1in X-black screen with 1366 x 768 resolution and LED illumination. The image is sharp, bright, and clear. The screen coating does a good job of enhancing image quality, but when the picture is very dark you can practically use the thing as a mirror.
