Sony VAIO VGN-TZ19N/XC Review

The Sony VAIO VGN-TZ19N/XC is one of Sony's portable notebooks that incorporates a solid state drive. It is small, portable, beautiful and packed with features that you won't expect on a 11.1 inch device.

The Sony VAIO VGN-TZ19N/XC has a gorgeous black carbon-fiber casing. Carbon fiber is the material used in jets and sports car (maybe that's why it is such an expensive notebook) that makes them sturdy but lightweight. Well, the carbon fiber casing did indeed make the Sony VAIO VGN-TZ19N/XC lightweight as it only weighs 2.6 pounds, about the durability, well, only time can tell, I'm not about to drop my cousin's $3000 dollar laptop just to test "durability".

The 11.1 inch WXGA wide screen display on the Sony VAIO VGN-TZ19N/XC is small but the XBRITE-HiColor Technology enables you to view vibrant, clear and crisp pictures with minimal reflection when using your notebook outdoors during sunny conditions. The only downside of having a small LCD is that small text is very difficult to view which probably isn't a good thing for those who are visually impaired.

The Sony VAIO VGN-TZ19N/XC also boasts of a built-in web camera, speakers and fingerprint reader on its small body. How Sony was able to put all of that on th device without compromising design or performance is truly an engineering marvel. Typing on the Sony VAIO VGN-TZ19N/XC is also enjoyable.
