14.1-S DVD/CDRW ENET WL FIREWI
Built for notebook users whose situation and requirements dictate extreme portability, Sony's TR series of mobile computers are amazingly petite yet satisfactorily powered. Demanding folks who need top-end speed and all the capabilities of a desktop should look elsewhere, but those who consistently work in remote environments or simply appreciate the convenience of miniaturization would do well with this, the Sony VAIO PCG-TR1A Notebook PC.
The VAIO PCG-TR1A features advanced Intel Centrino mobile technology for improved performance and reduced power consumption over similar speed non-Centrino units. At the heart of the system sits a 900 MHz ultra-low voltage Pentium M processor with an amazing one MB Level 2 cache. Sony has matched this processor with 512 MB DDR SDRAM memory and an integrated Intel 855GM graphics chipset with 64 MB of shared (not dedicated) video memory. Though this setup won't effectively drive the latest 3-D-based applications or keep up with the current crop of desktops, it will easily handle most typical mobile tasks.
The system features an adequate 30 GB hard disk for your files and applications and a versatile CD-RW/DVD-RW combo drive through which you can archive data, burn and play audio CDs and enjoy the latest movies. You'll monitor your work through a crystal clear 10.6-inch wide (1280x768) TFT display with XBRITE technology, and enter data via an integrated 83-key keyboard and electro-static touchpad.
At a mere 10.6 by 7.4 by 1.4 inches and just 3.1 pounds, the VAIO PCG-TR1A is extraordinarily compact. Yet it's packed with useful amenities, including two high-speed USB 2.0 ports, one FireWire port, a low-speed RJ-11 modem, a high-speed RJ-45 Ethernet connection and wireless LAN. Shutterbugs will appreciate the system's built-in low-resolution 640x480 swivel camera. Battery life is estimated at an impressive 2.5 to 7 hours with the enclosed standard cell and 3.5 to 11 hours with a separately available large capacity battery.
I bought this and absolutely loved it. But 4 months later I found the left corner mysteriously cracked, and a whole piece of the case fell out! I did nothing to get there. Read morePublished on February 27, 2004
