Fantastic Notebook!

Nov 5, 2000
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Portability; Battery Life; Display

Cons:Having to purchase CD ROM separately

The Sony SR7K in my opinion is a fantastic notebook computer. It scores high on portability, weighing in at 2.98 lbs, has a very good display, great bundle of software and very good battery life.

If portability is an issue to you, then I would highly recommend the SR7K. Its great to be able to close the lid, pick it up with one hand, and walk around the house with it like a thin book. The battery life is very good Ė lasting 3-4 hours (depending on what you are doing). The hibernation mode is great. I donít know if this is a mode found on other laptop/notebook computers (it is not offered on my Dell Latitude laptop nor is it on my HP Omnibook 4100). Just close the lid, and the computer very quickly goes into ďhibernationĒ. Later, all you have to do is open the lid, press the space bar, and about 15 seconds later, power comes back on again all without hardly draining any of the battery! I love this feature!!

For a 10.4 inch screen, I am very impressed. I was a little concerned about the size of the screen at first, but those concerns have subsided as Iíve used the notebook more. The size of the keyboard does take a little time to get use to. For some, this may be its greatest downfall. Iím use to smaller sized keyboards, as Iíve used a lot of small handhelds before, so its not a big issue to me.

In short, I would highly recommend the SR7K to anyone wanting a high performance yet very portable notebook computer. For those who arenít as concerned with the portability, I would recommend that you look at other notebook/laptop computers. There is no question that because of the size, you must compromise with a smaller keyboard and screen. For me, and a lot of others, this is worth it. One important note Ė if portability is HUGE to you, then you ought to check out the Sony PictureBook C1. Its even smaller and more portable, but again, so are the screen and keyboard. The question that you must ask yourself is how portable do you need? Whereas the PictureBook C1 may be just too small for most people, the SR7K is probably a better fit.

(one note - this is the same review that I wrote for the Sony SR5k. The two notebooks are identical other than the SR7K is a little faster, larger hard drive and more memory. But the features that mean the most to me and what I've written about in my review are the same. Therefore I thought it would be pertinent to include this review for the SR7K as well)
