Sony VAIO VGN-AW31XY/Q review

 

Sony's high-end laptop is aimed at professional photographers

SSD drives ; Huge amount of RAM ; Quality build ; Excellent ports and connections

Massively expensive

Sony's laptop compromises nowhere, including price, sadly - but it makes for a serious pro-level machine
