Sony VAIO VGN-SR41M/W review


Sony's ultraportable laptop has had some upgrades

Sony Vaio VGN-SR41M


Very lightweight and separated keys are excellent for ease of typing. Very easy to use and the perfect size for transporting.

Feels slightly like it might break if you lean too hard on the handrests. CD drive always pops out at annoying times!
