Sony Vaio VGN AW21Z/B

Last year, we were seduced by the AW11 with huge 18.4-inch Vaio. And now, Sony dust a little. And when we say a little, take it literally: the mid-range, AW21Z/B (improved version of the AW11Z/B), differs from the previous by the processor, a bit more powerful, and hard drives, the only novelty of the machine. Indeed, instead of two units of 320 GB, you are entitled to a disk of 64 GB SSD for the system and a 500 GB drive for storage.

Sony Vaio VGN AW21Z/B Laptop

Apart from that, the recipe is the same: a 4 kg machine equipped with a Nvidia 9600 GT card (that can play very comfortably), 4 GB of RAM and all entrances and exits used by our days, except, and this damage, the e-Sata port, absent in the range. It would have been good that Sony fixes this issue. Some of the shortcomings that remain, there are also 32-bit Windows, which does not draw the quintessence of 4 GB installed. Again, we appreciate that Sony should make an effort, as did HP, switch to the general public in models 64 bits.

This small thing was applied to the whole range to earn a few megahertz processors, hard drives continue even thicken a little, but Sony keeps its fundamentals, ie a slab Full HD (except for entry-level, the AW21M/H 1680 x 945 pixels) 16/9, the reader (and sometimes writer) Blu-ray and then point.

Nothing is shocking only because of what manufacturers call for a refresh, a development almost transparent supply. Take these new machines retain their standing (we were given a choice of writing the VGN-AW11XU/Q, for photographers, who boarded software pro) but that Sony has forgotten to switch to correct the lack port e-SATA and 32-bit OS. And that's a shame.
