Also like the last generation, the Z is constructed out of aluminum and carbon fiber, which makes the whole thing feel solid, particularly when you hold it one hand. In conversations with Sony, we asked why it didn't opt for a scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass display, as Lenovo did with the X1. While the company didn't exactly give us a straight answer, it did say that it deliberately made Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD display flexible so that it would better respond to travel and all-purpose manhandling.


Make of that what you will -- we can see the advantage to building in some leeway, though there's no question that the screen feels less sturdy than the rest of the machine. And that's not unique to the Z either -- we have a Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD VAIO SB in house, and its screen, too, tends to wobble, Given that we've seen the lower and higher end of what Sony has to offer, we're inclined to say we'd expect a bit more from the machine that costs north of two grand. Keyboard and trackpad As common as Chiclet keyboards are today, Sony was one of the first to jump on the island-style bandwagon. That means it's had a lot of time to think about what Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD a great typing experience: How far apart should they sit, and to what extent, if any, can people tolerate shrunken Shift buttons? All told, we'd say Sony has landed a winning formula.

The keys are well spaced, fairly quiet, and have a pleasant, soft finish. Like the last-generation, this year's Z has a backlit keyboard-- a touch we'd be shocked not to find in a premium system like this. And yet, while we made few spelling errors, the shallow keys didn't quite feel as Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD as other keyboards we've tested. The best analogy we can think of is what it's like to wear flip-flops.

When you're wearing these shoes, which lack any kind of heel or arch support, you might notice your toes rolling into a claw. They Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD into the flip-flop, gripping the rubber to the extent that there's anything to grab. With the Z's keyboard, too, the keys are so short that there isn't much to latch onto.


Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD As we typed, we could feel ourselves bearing down on the keys with a bit more pressure than we'd normally apply. Even the MacBook Pro has slightly cushier keys -- and let's not even get started on the pillowy keyboard found on any ThinkPad. With bigger, more tactile keys like those, our hands fly over the keyboard -- they don't tense up because the buttons are simply easier to press. That said, in the grand scheme of things, the VAIO Z's keyboard is one of the sturdier and better arranged we've seen. In yet another design switcheroo, Sony opted for a buttonless trackpad this go 'round.

We'll be honest, we've Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD mixed experiences with seamless touchpads -- though most use the same underlying Synaptics technology, laptop manufacturers implement it differently. In Sony's case, the touch experience is mostly pleasant, at least when it comes to just moving the cursor to and fro. The touchpad, which measures nearly three inches by one and a half The touch buttons are ever-so slightly stiff, but the real problem is that there's a hyper sensitive fingerprint reader wedged in the center. It's all too easy to accidentally tap it with your fingers, which causes unwanted dialog boxes to appear onscreen. We suggest disabling that, unless biometric sensors are your cup of tea. Other than that, our main complaint about the touchpad is that it chokes on two-fingered scrolling.

At first it'll Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD to work seamlessly.

You'll feel in control as you page up and down through a document. It all works perfectly until Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD, we had vexing moments when we had to press hard with our fingers to make scrolling work, or where we moved our digits up and down and nothing happened. Display and sound The One of the first things we noticed about the Z -- even before its impossibly light weight, perhaps -- is that if you look at the screen from the side it has an odd reddish tint.

Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD a shame, because the viewing angles from the sides are actually quite good. Head-on, fortunately, the display looks gorgeous, with white whites, black blacks, and no sign of that puzzling red overcast that troubled us from oblique angles.

We're also happy to report that the viewing angles are equally excellent if you push the lid forward -- a real possibility if you intend to use this thing on a plane or commuter rail. While Sony's Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD up one premium display, it dropped the ball as far as sound quality goes. The twin speakers deliver pretty weak volume and, what's more, the audio is pretty tinny.

Not necessarily a more metallic sound than you'd get with any old notebook but remember, this isn't any old notebook. For two grand, we'd expect some deeper bass notes and volume loud enough to entertain a guest or twenty. Power Media Dock Here's the part you've been waiting for -- the thing that makes the Z look so peculiar in photos. Toshiba Satellite 1100-Z1 ODD Power Media Dock -- and, with it, a completely different set of assumptions about how you're going touse your computer. This year's Z forgoes both the optical drive and discrete graphics card, and stuffs 'em both in a external drive, dubbed the Power Media Dock.
