Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Portability and performance are a perfect match in the VAIO X11Z1E. With a 13.9mm full flat carbon chassis that tips the scales at a featherweight 780g, this netbook is slim and light enough to take anywhere with you. Features like its Rigid Arc Structure and Solid State Drive mean that it can withstand day-to-day knocks, while power-efficient technologies maximise battery life for up to eight hours of cable-free computing. An optional extended life LL battery gives you the opportunity of doubling that time. With built-in Everywair 3G, you can surf the internet and stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues no matter where you are. X-black technology ensures that web pages, pictures and videos on the 11.1-inch screen are vivid and clear. And Windows® 7 Professional makes performance faster and networking even easier. While a full range of connection options including USB sockets and a high-speed Memory Stick ™ slot put efficient computing and enjoyable entertainment in easy reach.

The world’s lightest* PC notebook
The VAIO X11Z1E takes PC portability to a new level. Crafted in carbon fibre and aluminium, the notebook weighs in at just 780g. With a 13.9mm full flat chassis, it’s thin to the limit. Pop it under your arm, carry it in one hand; they’re both possible with the VAIO X Series. Optional accessories like a leather carrying case and wire-free Bluetooth® mouse simply enhance its mobility.

* 1) As of 8th October 2009 2) Among notebook PCs with screen of 10" or above - if you choose the configuration of (a) S Battery (VGP-BPS19), (b) no WWAN function and (c) SSD 64GB

This built-in 3G technology uses the mobile phone network to get you online and delivers uninterrupted mobile broadband at speeds of up to 7.2Mbps. No need for a WiFi hotspot, just get online when you want, wherever you are.

Friends, colleagues and family are just a blink away, with the built-in Motion Eye camera. Integrated software makes connecting easy, and the camera includes auto focus and brightness, so you enjoy the best possible picture.

Appearing on the big screen
The latest X-black technology with LED delivers images rich in colour, detail and depth, while enhancing durability and reducing reflection. The ultra-thin, streamlined 11.1-inch screen means you’ll be able to watch movies just as the director intended in their original format, with 16:9 aspect ratio. Its dimensions also make it large enough for you to view two web pages side-by-side, for moments when you want to multi-task.

Built to last
By using carbon fibre in the chassis, Sony has not only enhanced the notebook’s weightlessness but also its strength. A Rigid Arc Structure ensures that it can withstand everyday knocks and shocks, while a groove around the edge of the LCD and palm rest help to reduce external damage.

The X11Z1E also offers Solid State Drive technology instead of normal hard disc storage. Because it uses memory chips rather than a spinning hard disc to store data, this technology is better able to take the odd knock. It also enables a faster system boot, so you can quickly check your inbox or listen to your music while you’re on the move.

Data safety is ensured with the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) which uses encryption to prevent unauthorised access. The X11Z1E also comes with the McAfee Internet Security Suite, to protect you and your data online.

Designed for life
Central to the VAIO’s appeal is its combination of sleek good looks with functional design. Take the 17mm isolation keyboard for example, which incorporates the optimum space between each indented key for the most accurate and pleasurable typing experience. Whether you’re in a café, on the train or balancing the notebook on your lap, the VAIO X Series is extremely comfortable to use. The touch pad delivers additional functionality, enabling you to quickly find what you’re looking for using a variety of fingertip movements.

Powered up
The X Series sets you free for hours of cable-free computing. Power-efficient technologies work to extend battery life for up to 8 hours, which can be doubled with the optional LL battery.

Whether you’re working or relaxing, you want a PC that has the power to support your activities. The VAIO X Series is installed with Windows® 7 Professional for rapid access to entertainment and easier networking. It also features the impressively speedy Intel® 2GHz Atom™ Processor Z550, which enhances performance and extends battery life. They’re complemented by the notebook’s 2GB memory and a hard drive storage capacity of 256GB.

Finishing off the package is a full range of interfaces, enabling you to connect the notebook to printers, projectors, and other equipment, as well as high-speed Memory Stick™ PRO and SD Card slots for fast storage.

Easy access to all your media
Take all the effort out of storing and finding videos and photos with Picture Motion Browser. It automatically indexes all your media enabling you to browse by date or name. You can also click on a face and it’ll find all the other photos or clips featuring that person. The X11Z1E also comes with Windows Media Player 11, which puts a world of entertainment at just a click away. Fill your library, then take your music and video anywhere with you. Play, view and sync your favourite tracks, movies and TV shows all from one place.

The X Series comes with Windows® 7 Professional pre-installed and Windows® XP in the box.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excelent product! 19 July 2010
By Mikhail
Verified Purchase
I was slightly concerned regarding a previous review saying that this laptop does not work with Vodafone (as I am a Vodafone customer), however, the issue was only a matter of changing settings, (it took 3 clicks) so I have no problems what so ever with any network and I tested O2, 3 and, of course, Vodafone.

I did not like the shiny top cover of the laptop AND it was NOT in the description but as long as I was thinking of buying extra protection in a form of a laptop skin I did not mind.

I did not find many accessories for this laptop and those I have found (SONY labelled) were overpriced.
Apart from all that, I love this model, if you use the correct settings and can `tune' the laptop it will work fasted and have a long battery life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Machine 20 Jan 2010
Beautiful machine, super lightweight and better than my not very old previous vaio laptop, but inbuilt wan software will not work with my Vodafone sim, so looks like I am stuck with a dongle. And a stupidly short AC power cord means I will have to buy one of a sensible length from an accessory shop. At this price I would expect Sony to provide a 6ft cord! I have a small lounge, but I can't reach a wall outlet with the OEM cord!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very flimsy. Mine has died within 3 days 30 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase
After considerabel research, and bearing in mind the first and only review (5 stars), I bought this on Amazon. It has a flimsy build quality. Battery life, after a full charge, has not met expectation. Before it died (see further) I was unable to activate the motion eye nor to obtain any relevant gudiance on the Sony /Viao websites. When alerted by the troubleshooter to missing drivers, it was unable to correct this. On its 4th day, having been used only thrice previously, it has utterly and truly died. I have disconnected the extrenal DVD drive, unplugged it from the power socket and tried plugging in again. I await in vain for the happy green battery charging light to go on. Alas, I wait in vain. Buyer beware. I will be returning mine. By contrast, my husband's new Apple MAC --the first MAc for us as we were hitherto a family of IBM/Sony users-- is working a treat.
