"Sony Z1 RSP Laptop"

I bought my Sony Laptop in September after doing some thorough research. It was the best product I could find at the time, and is almost flawless. It has a hard disk of 60Gb, a 1.7Ghz processer, 512Mb Ram, CD-RW, Bluetooth and Wireless LAN. It comes fully loaded. The Bluetooth is great, because it means I can pair my mobile with my laptop and back up all my numbers, syncronise my schedule onto my mobile, even send text messages from my computer via my mobile! The screen has a powerful resolution with stunning clarity. The physique of the laptop is lean, small and light. The processer can handle serious work including video editing, graphics, and multi-tasks very well. The keyboard is a little cramped, however the touch pad mouse is very responsive and doesn't stick or lack response. I would however warn you that this model has been discontinued, and replaced with a better z1 with a dvd rw and 80Gb hard disk.
