Review Sony Vaio VGN-TX5XN Notebook

 

Mobile Cinema. If you are willing to spend a little more on a sub ...

Nice design, Low weight, compact dimensions, Integrated DVD drive, Bright LED display with good illumination and contrast, Display ready for outdoor usage, Low noise and temperature emissions, Very good battery runtime

Small weaknesses regarding stability of the case, Tersely equipped with ports, Moderate performance

Still, it is note-worthy that their sound is rather dull, and that the basses are as usual poor. Also the maximum volume could be better

Sony Vaio VGN-TX5XN review

 

It may not pack the processing power of a super computer, but the TX5XN makes up for it in many other ways. It's small and light enough to carry with you everywhere, with enough battery life to keep you going most of the day

Decent keyboard ; Internal DVD writer ; Vivid display ; Long battery life

Relatively underpowered ; Limited expansion ports ; Screen a little small for everyday use

It's better than the Asus U1 in many ways, but then it does cost more, so which you choose will depend on your budget. If portability is more important to you than performance, then this is one of the smallest, most usable laptops on the market
