5.0 out of 5 stars What an excellent netbook!, 16 Oct. 2009
By 
This review is from: Sony VAIO W11S1E Mini Laptop - Atom N280 1.66GHz 1Gb 160Gb 10.1 inch WXGA Windows XP Home (White) (Electronics)
It took Sony a while to release there first netbook, but the result is not at all dissapointing. The machines design is very impressive and it looks exactly like a scaled-down version of Sony's larger products. The textured palmrest proves suitably durable and the solid matt-white lid also provides excellent protection for the screen.

It also has one of the better netbook keyboards as the keys are speced out,larger than most netbooks and more responsive. The touchpad is particularly large and boasts big, responsive buttons, making for an excellent working environment. The 160GB hard drive also provides plenty of room for all your files and folders.

As a netbook, portability is one of the biggest issues. Weighing in at only 1.1kg including the 3 cell battery which provides around 2.5 hours usage from a full charge. It would be advisable to keep the power adaptor with you when away for extensive periods.

Connectivity is also excellent. This netbook features 802.11N wifi, which is used to gain better speeds and coverage compared to the usual laptop and netbook standard of 802.11G. This netbook also includes bluetooth for wireless interactions with compatible devices such as smartphones or PDA's.

After praising this netbook, the only disadvantages of it would be the price tag. It is slightly more than your average netbook, but for a 720P HD screen, bluetooth and 802.11N wireless connectivity, it might just be worth it.
