Sony Vaio T Series - Laptops: Reviews

When portability is paramount, Sony's Vaio T is the ultimate machine. I've road-tripped mine across the United States and Canada. It's survived a kayaking expedition to Madagascar, where it happily chugged a steady diet of digital photos. On my "recovery" days, it's a coffee-shop conversation starter: "Is that a real computer? It's so small!" Absolutely. Sony packed hardcore processing power, built-in wireless networking, multiple USB ports, a recordable media drive, and an Aviator-length battery life into a notebook PC that's actually—take a deep breath now—notebook-size.
