Sony CR21S/P laptop PC

 

The pink version of the Sony CR21S/P laptop may not be to everyone's taste.

Although the gaming score was a little low and the keyboard is not the easiest to use, we think Sony has got it right for a laptop of this price, combining power and style in a well featured and portable notebook that doesn’t break the bank. Available...

Sony Vaio VGN CR21S

 

Bright screen. Fast as basic editing tasks and single-thread programming. Light, smallish.

No fingerprint scanner. Not possible to expand memory. No firewire. Runs Vista, which is crashes and flakes. Shiny screen. Poor speakers. Poor battery life.

It looks gorgeous! Oh and it performs very well under Vista for a laptop!

Battery life as always is a little low but is mainly expected on laptops of today.

Sony Vaio VGN CR21S

 

Easy to use keyboard layout, neat and uncluttered. Stylish design. Lots of storage for photos and documents.

Battery pack seems loose, but hasn't fallen off when carrying.
