Sony VAIO VGN-A397XP - Pocket-lint


If you're in the market for a desktop replacement notebook, size isn't something you're too concerned about, what it needs is power. Step up Sony's

Big screen, high-specification

Big price, average 3D scores

With a battery life in the region of two hours when running Microsoft Office, you won't want to rely on this laptop to keep you working for long spells out in the garden. To be fair, it's not built with portability in mind, this VAIO is better suited...
