Sony VAIO VGN-NS20J/S review


Sony have produced an attractive, comfortable and well made laptop at a decent price

Good chassis ; Fairly decent performance as long as you don't want to multi-task ; Excellent screen ; Decent storage space ; Good battery life

Poor graphics card ; CPU could be better

A great laptop for those looking for a machine with a premium finish and don't mind sacrificing overall performance to get it
