Sony VAIO VGN-A397XP - Pocket-lint


In many respects that could easily replace your desktop PC but we still feel a little cheated by the graphic options.

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...
