~~Size Matters... Truly a Head Turner~~ Review with images

AdvantagesA very smart companion having you need in a laptop

DisadvantagesSome pre-installed softwares are under free trial agreement

"...I decided to buy a SONY VAIO VGN-TX2XP in DIXONS in Manchester Aiport Terminal 3 prior to my check-in outbound to Boston. Since it is tax free, the notebook's price is 1,497.86 (high street price is almost 1,700), inclusive of 1 year warranty. Well, it is not a surprise for me to see you frowning or seeing you with a surprise facial expression for knowing that I paid that much for only a laptop. Please dont argue about this, it is my personal choice ..." Read review

Great addition to the VAIO range. Well done, Sony!

AdvantagesCommunication, storage space, ports, size and weight

DisadvantagesScreen looks "grainy" on certain images

"...as a replacement to my Sony VAIO TR1MP which was stolen from me in March. It has all the same functionality as the standard TR and TX range with a few adjustments and upgrades.

Prepare yourself - attracts a lot of attention!

AdvantagesLightweight, long battery life, good performance

DisadvantagesKeyboard not so robust, screen needs lots of cleaning.

"...had to be returned to Sony for repair under warranty. It was returned within 3 working days, which I thought was excellent service. One small gripe - the keyboard keys are not very robust and the coating does come off with wear. Maybe it's a sign of how much I use the machine! However, four of the key tops have dislodged and I have had to carefully repair them myself (not a difficult job but fiddly). The screen also needs cleaning regularly - sometimes ..." Read review

Quality product - Sonv VAIO TX2XP

AdvantagesSmall, good battery life

DisadvantagesSlow, limited memory

"I was looking for a small and very portable laptop with a long battery life, exactly what I have got in this laptop!! The keyboard took a bit of getting used to but now I struggle to use 'normal' size keys. The screen is very clear, important when you consider the text is quite small due to the small screen size. I've been using the computer for almost 3 years now and haven't really had any problems with it. The only thing I've noticed is it is getting ..." Read review
