Sony Vaio BX51VN
Advantages: fast, looks
Disadvantages: storage space
This Sony VAIO BX51VN / BX51XP is yet another laptop from the Sony vaio range, and also another fantastic laptop from this range. It takes the newest of technology, and the brand new designs from Sony, and puts it all into one laptop which functions just as good as it looks.
One thing this laptop is great for, is defiantly media needs, its great for loading all your music onto and even has a built in speaker to play music out of.
Its also great for watching movies on and playing games on, this is due to its Intel GMA X3100 video card which helps it in running the newest of games, and even the future games.
There is also windows media player pre installed and a lot of video software like: roxio easy media creator 9, Sony click to DVD, win DVD and Sony sonic stage mastering studio 2.4. This laptop also comes with a couple of Photoshop programs too, these are great for editing all your photos on and usually cost over £100 to buy, so as you can see all of these programs added up defiantly come to more than the actual laptop price in itself.
This laptop keeps running very quickly due to its very impressive 2gb of installed ram, also because of its Mobile Intel GM965 Express features Enhanced Speed Step technology and runs at 2 GHz which is really very fast.
This laptop also has 120gb of hard drive storage space which is really enough for me.
Its TFT screen, measures 15.4 inches, this is great for watching movies on, watching video clips on and makes gaming so much better too. This screen is also active matrix, this is being used by so much more laptop manufacturers nowadays as it makes the screen lighter, therefore making the laptop lighter, is makes the image quality so much better than a normal TFT screen and it also makes the response time a lot better, which makes videos look sharper, photos look sharper and game playing look better than ever before.
Another feature built into this screen is the fantastic X-black technology, this gives you better contrast, better quality, but the best thing of all, this gives you wider viewing angles.
In the past, watching movies on laptops has been for only one person and two people positioned very closely to each other. Even then you would have to set your laptop up just right pointing at exactly where your sat to get a good picture and if you moved your body in the slightest your view would be spoilt and the screen would look black and faces look weird colours too.
However, with X-black technology, you can just watch your laptop from pretty much any angle, your whole family could be crowded round watching something on your laptop and they would all have the same view, the best view, so this X-black technology is great when looking for a laptop.
Altogether this is a great laptop if you want something durable, lightweight and portable. It only weighs 3kg and will last you around 3 hours so its really good.
Also you'll be able to get one of these beauties for just £700 or less, and it even looks fantastic so what's not to like about this laptop?
Summary: good laptop
