A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

Sony's monster Vaio F is a hefty beast, weighing in at a knee-crunching 3.1kg. It's a Sandy Bridge Core i7 multimedia powerhouse that'll handle pretty much anything you can throw at it. Nvidia graphics give it 3D video, and the large screen is ready f...

Sony has got its proverbial fingers in so many third dimensional pies, we can't believe the Japanese powerhouse took such a long time to roll out a 3D laptop off its production line. But the Sony VAIO F-Series (VPCF21Z1E/BI) is worth every second of...

We’ve seen laptops capable of rendering 3D before, but Sony’s luxurious – if perversely titled – Sony VAIO VPCF21Z1E/B is undoubtedly the best so far. It’s a heavy brute of a laptop, weighing over 3.1kg, with a striking high-gloss black plastic finish...
Bottom line This entertainment-focused Sony VAIO VPCF21Z1E/B laptop has just about everything you’d need for a domestic-bound desktop replacement. It’s heavy and a touch too noisy for our taste but if you want a luggable notebook with 3D playback – and you have th...

Imagine my joy when asked to try out a 3D entertainment centre built into a Sony Vaio notebook. Imagine my disappointment, then, when I discover that the notebook in question is actually too big to fit in my notebook bag. Sony's Vaio VPCF21Z1E: don’t t...
Bottom line Overall, I was happy with performance of the Sony Vaio VPCF21Z1E/BI, it’s pretty damn good but not great. Yet compared to others in this class that Reg Hardware has tested lately, it seems Sony makes you pay for that extra performance. Tech specs asid...

Alright, fancypants. You want a laptop of luxury, but you don't want an Apple MacBook? Not even a 17-inch MacBook Pro? You want 3D but a Zalman 3D monitor isn't for you? Fancy the sort of black plastic slab that your friends can only dream of owning? Y...

Ever since James Cameron's Avatar thrust cinema-goers into the third-dimension of film, the concept of 3D in the home has become a reality. Now Sony, the big force behind the Blu-ray 3D format, has gone one step further, cramming a 3D display into a lapto...

Continued from page 1 2Sony has a reputation for producing expensive computers in its Vaio range, and the Vaio VPCF21Z1E/BI is a more powerful computer than most we review, hence the £1800 price tag.Though it's heavy at 3kg and wide (40cm across the fr...
