Sony VGN-TZ11XN/B laptop
You won't have any trouble fitting this into your hand luggage

By now the alarm bells should be ringing as a feather-light laptop inevitably packs a tiny battery - so you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that the VGP-BPL11 Li-Ion battery has a claimed life of seven hours and a charge time of three and a half hours. We raised a quizzical eyebrow at these figures and ran loops of PCMark05 to get a battery life of four hours and five minutes. That’s constant heavy-duty use, and our rule of thumb says you can double the test figure to get a real-world battery figure - so Sony’s seven hours is, if anything, conservative.

Sony has achieved this remarkable figure by sticking religiously to Centrino Duo components that are based on a Core 2 Duo U series processor and an Intel 945GMS chipset with Intel GMA950 graphics.

There are three models in the TZ11 range that offer different specs of processor, memory, hard drive and, of course, in price. The VGN-TZ11 MN/N Platinum Sand has a U7500 processor running at 1.06GHz, 1GB of PC2-4300 RAM and an 80GB hard drive for a Sony Style price of £1,499 inc VAT. You can find it on sale elsewhere at £1349.
