This Sony VAIO BZ12VN is another new laptop from sony. Its one of their full sized laptops rather than the smaller notebooks that they have been bringing out and seemingly concentrating no recently.
The installed ram on this laptop is a massive 4gb, meaning its not just fast, its extremely fast. Loading up and running even the most demanding programs seem a breeze.
Also above average is the amount of hard drive that this laptop has. It has a fantastic 320gb of storage space for all those media needs and data needs too.
This amount of space is well more than enough for me and should be enough for nearly everyone too as it is quite a spacious hard drive.
The laptop also has a quite nice 15.4 inch TFT screen, this is the average size for laptop screens, it might make the laptop a little bigger, and therefore less portable but it makes whatever your doing on your laptop a lot easier to do.
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.
The battery life an the weight of this laptop are great for the portability of the laptop. Its only weighs 2.5 kg and will last around 3.5 hours. Another thing this laptop has, that I must mention, is a built in card reader, this can read any of SD Memory Card, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick Duo. This makes transferring pictures and videos off your camera or off your phones a lot easier than having to connect everything by wires and having one built into this laptop means you don't have to go out and spend another £20 on buying a card reader.
This laptop not only has a great spec, but it also has great design and some really good features. It may seem dear at around £800 but I think its worth every single penny.
