Quality Machine Overall


Perfect combination of portability and performance.

The screen should have an option to get slightly brighter, but it is quite bright regardless.

VAIO C291N T5500 1.66G 2GB 160GB DVDRW 13.3-WX XBE BT WL WVB


this is my 2nd laptop. I choose it because its excellent featres, huge (for laptops) hard drive, also good linux support (Debian).I think the notebook is a good trade-off between power and portability.

pretty fast, lightweight, long lasing battery. card reader slot: this laptop has everything you need

only 2 usb connectors, located too close each other: so if you need to plug in 2 device... it cold be complicated
