Sony Vaio TT Series 11.1" Laptop SSD and Blu-ray

Updated on April 27, 2014

The smaller a notebook (laptop) is the more stripped down it tends to be. That is a blanket statement and it is proved wrong by Sony with its TT Series. Measuring a mere 11.1” it is loaded with exceptional features. It is reasonably fast with a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and up to 4GB DDR3 SDRAM. It is very lightweight at 2.87 pounds. There is ample storage with a hard drive of up to 320GB and or an SSD up to 256GB – not to mention the integrated expansion slots for a Memory Stick Pro, an SD Card, a Compact Flash Card (wow, that is unheard of) or an ExpressCard.

You can imagine that battery life takes a real beating trying to keep up with everything in these laptops but the standard battery keeps going for 4.5 to 7.5 hours and the large capacity battery goes for 6.5 to 12.0 hours. 

 I can agree with these numbers because my three-year-old Sony Vaio TX Series laptop standard battery lasts for 6-7 hours of normal computing and for at least 3 to 4 hours while computing online.

The rather unique features keep going. Although the screen is small (11.1”) it has a 16:9 aspect ratio, which allows you to watch a movie in Widescreen mode without the black lines. Even a small laptop like the TT Series there is an option for an integrated CD-RW/DVD drive or a Blu-ray Disk that is both RW. An HD Audio system and noise cancelling headphones are also included.

When you see a Sony TT Series laptop for yourself, be impressed by the simplest features such as the 82 keys of the QWERTY keyboard, the built in MOTION EYE webcam and the electro-static touch pad. Security is not left out – there is a Biometric Fingerprint Sensor.

The Sony Vaio TT Series is pretty as well. There is Red, White, Champaign Gold (YUM), Black and Carbon Fiber Black. If I was buying this laptop today I would buy Carbon Fiber Black again – my TX Series is velvety smooth and does not show a single fingerprint smudge or scratch.

All of this does come at a price. Expect to pay at least a couple of thousand dollars and if you include a Blu-ray disk and huge SSD drive the price will be closer to three to four thousand dollars. A lot of money – yes – but if you keep it for three or four years the price becomes much more reasonable. My TX was three years old as of last October and I have no plan to put it out to pasture.
