Another mixed talk about laptop and computer, this time with the goal of bringing light to the masses. As a backstory, I will tell about such a were. Once upon a time, I really loved the Sony Ericsson P990 smartphone. In general, I love it even now, but this is already something like nostalgia, I won’t rearrange the SIM card into it, I won’t use it, but sometimes it’s nice to hold it in my hand. It was a good device, with a large display, there was an A2DP profile for using wireless headsets, excellent voice quality, and so on and so forth. A large, handy thing for a variety of cases, which has saved and rescued more than once. Yes, I love junk, there's nothing to say. It's good to chase the latest news in order to write about them. But, when buying equipment for yourself, sometimes you think a hundred times before giving money for a novelty. From the outside, it may seem that the members of the editorial board are overwhelmed with gifts and offerings, but in reality this is far from the case. And let someone wince now, they say, again he is talking about his family affairs that are of no interest to anyone, but my wife has long been asking for a laptop to replace the deceased Dell XPS M1330. While there was no laptop, she used my toys in the evenings, of course, this did not please me in any way. So, the idea of ​​​​a female laptop gnawed at me just like the need to write material about the Cowon S9. In my diary, more than once or twice I published entries about all sorts of curious and relatively inexpensive solutions, small and sometimes remote. In addition, this year, and right now, total "drains" of several very curious models have begun, just from the series that should have been presented.

We are talking about the Lenovo U110, this miniature laptop looks good, has a nice keyboard, a good package, plus now it costs less than forty thousand rubles, and earlier the price was completely different - about seventy thousand. In general, I initially counted on it, but in the end another phenomenon was noticed - Sony Vaio TZ are now sold at the same price. As you know, this model is no longer available and seems to have been discontinued, but you should not think that this has made it worse. Over the weekend, the right decision was finally and irrevocably made, and I left the store (or rather, not me) as the owner of the Sony Vaio VGN-TZ2RXN.

Well, here it is. The purpose of this mixture is to tell all those who now have a little less than forty thousand and need a small laptop to make the right choice. I don't think it's worth considering every detail of this laptop in detail, the network is full of tests and reviews, discussions, I will outline only the main points based on which the choice was made. Firstly, this is a wonderful eleven-inch display with a resolution of 1366x768, although the resolution is unusual, but the screen has excellent viewing angles, it is very bright, colorful - a wonderful display. Secondly, it's weight and dimensions - a little more than a kilogram, the case is smaller than an A4 sheet. Thirdly, operating time - about six hours from a standard battery is easily achievable.If you spend money on an additional battery (that's fourteen thousand), then you can charge your laptop at night and safely take it with you for the whole day without a charger. Fourthly, there is a huge amount of everything you need on the case - these are neat multimedia control buttons, and a couple of USB ports, and Ethernet, FireWire, modem ports closed with a plug, plus a DVD drive, monitor output. Rich. Fifth, great keyboard. Sixth, a huge number of special settings, I will especially note programs for fine-tuning the battery and power supply.

Well, to sum it up, I've lost even more sense in a toy like TT. Yes, it's just as good as the TZ in just about everything. But the time of work, in my opinion, is still critical for such decisions. The old TZ is out of competition here, moreover, I can predict even greater popularity for him now due to a very pleasant price, which, I think, can become even less. I won’t even write here about who might need this thing, this thing is not only small, but also productive enough for the basic tasks of a person who does not work with professional programs. It can also be a gift for your girlfriend or mom, then you can look for TZ with a different cover color. In short, I can safely recommend it for purchase, even despite some noticed negative points associated with the case - the hinges go slightly, when you press the frame, stains appear on the monitor - all this, by and large, is nonsense. It is small, it works for a very long time in isolation from the power supply - this is perhaps the most important thing.

And now let's take a little digression before turning to the Sony Vaio TP3. So, Sony is a lot of fiction, I think everyone knows this. But what interests me most here is the approach of two of my favorite companies, Apple and Sony. There are some schools of gadget construction that are very different from each other, the scales, of course, are very different, but for the market as a whole, both brought an inexpressible amount of innovation, no matter what anyone says. And this is especially true of inventing new needs that need to be satisfied. This is the great dream of any marketer - to come up with a new desire for a person, a new aspiration, a new little miracle that will be embodied in a product or service that satisfies this very need. But these companies are going in very, very different ways. To do this, just look at least at laptops, within the Vaio there are dozens of different models for a variety of groups, ranging from girls to adult plump men. At Apple, everything is more monumental and concise, without frills. But it is these very excesses that, in my opinion, make Sony a sort of market driver, an eternal dreamer and inventor, Apple's approach is more technical, clear, it is he who brings in money, while Sony is not afraid to spend a lot of money on creating explicit toys, which delight, amaze, but what to apply them to - this still needs to be figured out.

I'm not just talking about Vaio P, here's a good example of a technological toy. There is also Rolly. There is also a series of Mylo communicators, which, I believe, will merge in ecstasy with PSP, and a set-top box with QWERTY, a built-in video camera, pre-installed services for communication both by voice and by banal correspondence will appear. Look, after all, a person who buys a PSP, as a rule, is aware that there are few normal games, it’s great to use such a screen for watching movies - the search for an excuse to buy can last for months, and a man will break his eyes behind the console, having more suitable for 1-3 Month Female Purebred German Shepherd same goals solution. For example, the well-known man Vilyanov suffers from this disease, despite the presence of Vaio TZ on the farm, he converts films for PSP with enviable persistence. Although you can watch movies in flight on the specified laptop, and everything can be very similar in terms of operating time.

In my opinion, Sony appeals to the child sitting in each of us, who has not played enough, who wants to tell dad "Buy it, dad!" In the article "Death to snobbery" I already wrote about the sets that can be collected, and again it turns out that "sonystyle" stubbornly seeps into life. And, in fact, attachment to this brand can be a certain indicator that the child inside is crying again and asking for a toy. And the child, meanwhile, will soon turn thirty.

I wrote all this to the fact that playing is, of course, good, but sometimes you need to think about whether or not to spend money on a new little thing. For example, I have a Sony Vaio VGX-TP3SR / B computer under my TV, it belongs to the Vaio Dugital Home series, and, by and large, is a computer for a TV. What is meant? It means that a person buys a TV in a company store, and at the same time takes such a beautiful round thing. Why is he taking it? He can connect it via HDMI to a TV and do everything the same as on a regular computer. With the expectation that you can connect an antenna to the TP3, set up television directly in the multimedia center of the Vista operating system and engage in viewing, recording, and so on. Moreover, he can do all this with the help of the remote control, which is included in the kit.

In fact, the technique is really very simple, as well as setting up the device - I took it out of the box, connected it to the network and to the TV, turned it on from the remote control, went to the menu, tuned the channels, went to watch. I know kind people who connected TP3 to the projector - also an option. Well, all this splendor works well, no one bothers you with the help of TP3 to engage in adventures on the network, you can even work - in general, you can do anything you like, like on a regular computer. Which, in fact, is TP3.

I really liked the included keyboard, it's wireless, it looks like it was torn out of a laptop - it has a touchpad and a couple of buttons under it, there is a monochrome screen showing the battery charge, I'm told that the TP2 had range problems. In TP3, within the room, the connection is quite normal - well, let's say, at a distance of five meters from the TV, everything works. The keyboard does not "slow down", with its help it is quite convenient to communicate in "ICQ" or write something in "Word", I will not talk about using the network at all.

The thing looks typical for the company: a round case, on the upper end there is a backlight invisible when turned off, there is a sliding door in front, behind it there are a couple of USB ports, a power button, FireWire, a key for connecting a keyboard, slots for memory cards. There is a riot of colors at the back, all the connectors are collected here, it makes little sense to list them, I think the purpose of the majority is clear. A special line is the connector for connecting the antenna, but I have already said about this. You can also check out the list here.

I'm rather casually describing this device also because, unlike TP2 (it's such a white "pill"), TP3 will not be sold separately, you will need to look for it in sets with a TV, the price of such an integrated solution will be refreshing. On the other hand, this is the right decision, especially given the ease of connecting and using a computer.

As for performance, it is, to put it mildly, average, an Intel Core Duo processor with a clock frequency of 2.4 GHz, three gigabytes of RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT video card - laptop components are installed. Accordingly, it is hardly worth opening the TP3 to replace the video card, in fact, this is a desktop-type laptop. How else to say - I do not know. You can play games that do not require powerful video cards, and everything will depend on the working resolution; In general, I would not recommend playing, there is no point in this. This thing is for playing music, movies, and is self-sufficient, since it can download any content itself. It’s clear that you don’t even have to talk about torrents, the only thing that doesn’t please is a five hundred gigabyte hard drive, they could have given more. Still, for real "torrenters" you need a hard drive of at least a terabyte. But the built-in drive can play Blu-ray, it can play, it cannot write.

Based on the results of almost a month of using this device, I can say one thing - the niche is extremely narrow. This is also due to the high cost of the device. The previous model, TP2, is now also on sale in most networks at a price of just over forty thousand rubles, but at the same time, I personally have a misunderstanding why and who would need it. Firstly, if we talk about torrents, then NAS will come to the rescue, you can buy it, you can build it yourself. Secondly, if we talk about watching TV shows, recording, and so on, then this can be organized without the help of TP3 in a lot of ways. Thirdly, if we talk about who could buy TP3, then this is a person who does not mind the money for the purchase of a set of a TV and such a laptop. No wonder I wrote above about toys for which the company does not spare money, they always come up with something, try it, and so on. In the end, if we talk about the popularization of HDMI and Blu-ray, then even the small Vaio TT can somehow become a replacement for the TP3, like dozens of other devices with an HDMI connector on board. Connected - watch movies, work, surf the net and so on. I also say that when a thing can be replaced by a mass of other, and sometimes cheaper and more universal solutions, then this is already a diagnosis.

In addition, if in a good way, then TP3 should be considered as a modern video recorder, music center and a way to access the Internet in one bottle, a kind of "video recorder" of the twenty-first century.

It would be interesting to know how interesting it is for you to connect such a computer to your large TV, and what would you do with it?

He can connect it via HDMI to a TV and do everything the same as on a regular computer. With the expectation that you can connect an antenna to the TP3, set up television directly in the multimedia center of the Vista operating system and engage in viewing, recording, and so on. Moreover, he can do all this with the help of the remote control, which is included in the kit.

In fact, the technique is really very simple, as well as setting up the device - I took it out of the box, connected it to the network and to the TV, turned it on from the remote control, went to the menu, tuned the channels, went to watch. I know kind people who connected TP3 to the projector - also an option. Well, all this splendor works well, no one bothers you with the help of TP3 to engage in adventures on the network, you can even work - in general, you can do anything you like, like on a regular computer. Which, in fact, is TP3.

I really liked the included keyboard, it's wireless, it looks like it was torn out of a laptop - it has a touchpad and a couple of buttons under it, there is a monochrome screen showing the battery charge, I'm told that the TP2 had range problems. In TP3, within the room, the connection is quite normal - well, let's say, at a distance of five meters from the TV, everything works. The keyboard does not "slow down", with its help it is quite convenient to communicate in "ICQ" or write something in "Word", I will not talk about using the network at all.

The thing looks typical for the company: a round case, on the upper end there is a backlight invisible when turned off, there is a sliding door in front, behind it there are a couple of USB ports, a power button, FireWire, a key for connecting a keyboard, slots for memory cards. There is a riot of colors at the back, all the connectors are collected here, it makes little sense to list them, I think the purpose of the majority is clear. A special line is the connector for connecting the antenna, but I have already said about this. You can also check out the list here.

I'm rather casually describing this device also because, unlike TP2 (it's such a white "pill"), TP3 will not be sold separately, you will need to look for it in sets with a TV, the price of such an integrated solution will be refreshing. On the other hand, this is the right decision, especially given the ease of connecting and using a computer.

As for performance, it is, to put it mildly, average, an Intel Core Duo processor with a clock frequency of 2.4 GHz, three gigabytes of RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT video card - laptop components are installed. Accordingly, it is hardly worth opening the TP3 to replace the video card, in fact, this is a desktop-type laptop. How else to say - I do not know. You can play games that do not require powerful video cards, and everything will depend on the working resolution; In general, I would not recommend playing, there is no point in this. This thing is for playing music, movies, and is self-sufficient, since it can download any content itself. It’s clear that you don’t even have to talk about torrents, the only thing that doesn’t please is a five hundred gigabyte hard drive, they could have given more. Still, for real "torrenters" you need a hard drive of at least a terabyte. But the built-in drive can play Blu-ray, it can play, it cannot write.

Based on the results of almost a month of using this device, I can say one thing - the niche is extremely narrow. This is also due to the high cost of the device. The previous model, TP2, is now also on sale in most networks at a price of just over forty thousand rubles, but at the same time, I personally have a misunderstanding why and who would need it. Firstly, if we talk about torrents, then NAS will come to the rescue, you can buy it, you can build it yourself. Secondly, if we talk about watching TV shows, recording, and so on, then this can be organized without the help of TP3 in a lot of ways. Thirdly, if we talk about who could buy TP3, then this is a person who does not mind the money for the purchase of a set of a TV and such a laptop. No wonder I wrote above about toys for which the company does not spare money, they always come up with something, try it, and so on. In the end, if we talk about the popularization of HDMI and Blu-ray, then even the small Vaio TT can somehow become a replacement for the TP3, like dozens of other devices with an HDMI connector on board. Connected - watch movies, work, surf the net and so on. I also say that when a thing can be replaced by a mass of other, and sometimes cheaper and more universal solutions, then this is already a diagnosis.

In addition, if in a good way, then TP3 should be considered as a modern video recorder, music center and a way to access the Internet in one bottle, a kind of "video recorder" of the twenty-first century.

It would be interesting to know how interesting it is for you to connect such a computer to your large TV, and what would you do with it?

T, P and Z mix

Another mixed talk about laptop and computer, this time with the goal of bringing light to the masses. As a backstory, I will tell about such a were. Once upon a time, I really loved the Sony Ericsson P990 smartphone. In general, I love it even now, but this is already something like nostalgia, I won’t rearrange the SIM card into it, I won’t use it, but sometimes it’s nice to hold it in my hand. It was a good device, with a large display, there was an A2DP profile for using wireless headsets, excellent voice quality, and so on and so forth. A large, handy thing for a variety of cases, which has saved and rescued more than once. Yes, I love junk, there's nothing to say. It's good to chase the latest news in order to write about them. But, when buying equipment for yourself, sometimes you think a hundred times before giving money for a novelty. From the outside it may seem that the members of the editorial board are overwhelmed with gifts and offerings, but in reality this is far from the case. And let someone wince now, they say, again he is talking about his family affairs that are of no interest to anyone, but my wife has long been asking for a laptop to replace the deceased Dell XPS M1330. While there was no laptop, she used my toys in the evenings, of course, this did not please me in any way. So, the idea of ​​​​a female laptop gnawed at me just like the need to write material about the Cowon S9. In my diary, more than once or twice I published entries about all sorts of curious and relatively inexpensive solutions, small and sometimes remote. In addition, this year, and right now, total "drains" of several very curious models have begun, just from the series that should have been presented.

We are talking about the Lenovo U110, this miniature laptop looks good, has a nice keyboard, a good package, plus now it costs less than forty thousand rubles, and earlier the price was completely different - about seventy thousand. In general, I initially counted on it, but in the end another phenomenon was noticed - Sony Vaio TZ are now sold at the same price. As you know, this model is no longer available and seems to have been discontinued, but you should not think that this has made it worse. Over the weekend, the right decision was finally and irrevocably made, and I left the store (or rather, not me) as the owner of the Sony Vaio VGN-TZ2RXN.

Well, here it is. The purpose of this mixture is to tell all those who now have a little less than forty thousand and need a small laptop to make the right choice. I don't think it's worth considering every detail of this laptop in detail, the network is full of tests and reviews, discussions, I will outline only the main points based on which the choice was made. Firstly, this is a wonderful eleven-inch display with a resolution of 1366x768, although the resolution is unusual, but the screen has excellent viewing angles, it is very bright, colorful - a wonderful display. Secondly, it's weight and dimensions - a little more than a kilogram, the case is smaller than an A4 sheet. Thirdly, operating time - about six hours from a standard battery is easily achievable. If you spend money on an additional battery (that's fourteen thousand), then you can charge your laptop at night and safely take it with you for the whole day without a charger. Fourthly, there is a huge amount of everything you need on the case - these are neat multimedia control buttons, and a couple of USB ports, and Ethernet, FireWire, modem ports closed with a plug, plus a DVD drive, monitor output. Rich. Fifth, great keyboard. Sixth, a huge number of special settings, I will especially note programs for fine-tuning the battery and power supply.

And now let's take a little digression before turning to the Sony Vaio TP3. So, Sony is a lot of fiction, I think everyone knows this. But what interests me most here is the approach of two of my favorite companies, Apple and Sony. There are some schools of gadget construction that are very different from each other, the scales, of course, are very different, but for the market as a whole, both brought an inexpressible amount of innovation, no matter what anyone says. And this is especially true of inventing new needs that need to be satisfied. This is the great dream of any marketer - to come up with a new desire for a person, a new aspiration, a new little miracle that will be embodied in a product or service that satisfies this very need. But these companies are going in very, very different ways. To do this, just look at least at laptops, within the Vaio there are dozens of different models for a variety of groups, ranging from girls to adult plump men. At Apple, everything is more monumental and concise, without frills. But it is these very excesses that, in my opinion, make Sony a sort of market driver, an eternal dreamer and inventor, Apple's approach is more technical, clear, it is he who brings in money, while Sony is not afraid to spend a lot of money on creating obvious toys, which delight, amaze, but what to apply them to - this still needs to be figured out.

I'm not just talking about Vaio P, here's a good example of a technological toy. There is also Rolly. There is also a series of Mylo communicators, which, I believe, will merge in ecstasy with PSP, and a set-top box with QWERTY, a built-in video camera, pre-installed services for communication both by voice and by banal correspondence will appear. Look, after all, a person who buys a PSP, as a rule, is aware that there are few normal games, it’s great to use such a screen for watching movies - the search for an excuse to buy can last for months, and a man will break his eyes behind the console, having a more suitable solution for 1-3 Month Female Purebred German Shepherd for the same purposes. For example, the well-known man Vilyanov suffers from this disease, despite the presence of Vaio TZ on the farm, he converts films for PSP with enviable persistence. Although you can watch movies in flight on the specified laptop, and everything can be very similar in terms of operating time.

In my opinion, Sony appeals to the child sitting in each of us, who has not played enough, who wants to tell dad "Buy it, dad!" In the article "Death to snobbery" I already wrote about the sets that can be collected, and again it turns out that "sonystyle" stubbornly seeps into life. And, in fact, attachment to this brand can be a certain indicator that the child inside is crying again and asking for a toy. And the child, meanwhile, will soon turn thirty.

I wrote all this to the fact that playing is, of course, good, but sometimes you need to think about whether or not to spend money on a new little thing. For example, I have a Sony Vaio VGX-TP3SR / B computer under my TV, it belongs to the Vaio Dugital Home series, and, by and large, is a computer for a TV. What is meant? It means that a person buys a TV in a company store, and at the same time takes such a beautiful round thing. Why is he taking it?
