Sony VAIO VPC-W111XX/T 10.1-Inch Netbook Review

Specifications: The Sony VAIO VPC-W111XX/T netbook comes with a Intel N280 processor (1.66GHZ), 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard disk. It has a 10.1-inch LED backlit LCD display and is powered by a 3-cell battery. In terms of connectivity, this model has 2 USB ports, an Ethernet (10/100) port, a VGA output, a SD card slot, Memory Stick Duo card slot, headphone jack, microphone jack, wi-fi (802.11b/g/n) and Bluetooth connectivity (2.1).

Design: The Sony VAIO VPC-W111XX/T netbook comes in brown, pink and white (yes, no black). It measures at 10.5 x 7.1 x 1.3 inches and weighs in at 2.6 pounds. The external casing has a stylish matte surface. All they keys on its keyboard is isolated (like those on Apple computers) and it feels pretty good to type on despite its size. The memory card slots are located on the front, while the other ports and jacks are located on the side.

Features & Performance: The Sony VAIO VPC-W111XX/T netbook works just like any netbooks in the market. It runs on Windows XP and can handle most simple computing tasks pretty well. A feature that makes this model stand out from the rest it’s the VAIO Multimedia Streaming software that enables data stream between DLNA-enabled appliances (like your PC or PS 3). Besides that, there is nothing much that differentiates this model from the rest. Its battery lifespan hovers around just 2.5 hours, which is not much compared to many other competing models (such as the Asus 1005HA and the Toshiba Mini)

Overall: One of the major characteristics of the Sony VAIO VPC-W111XX/T netbook is its price. It currently costs around $499 a piece, which is more that $100 more that other popular netbook models. As much as I would like to justify the price (being a Sony fan), there really isn’t much good reason for a consumer to fork out the extra dough on this model. Maybe the premium is paid for the ‘glitz and glamour’ that comes with the brand name. The Sony VAIO VPC-W111XX/T netbook is best left for Sony fans and those who just can’t get over its gorgeous design.
