Sony Vaio VGN-NR32M


Very reliable. The only fault is nothing to do with the product itself - it is excessive spam and pop-ups from the internet. Therefore, I strongly recommend Norton or the such like. It is not heavy, runs quite fast, but could look thinner I suppose....

A bit bulky and ugly-to-look at.
