Sony Vaio NS20E/S
Advantages: Good screen, nice keyboard, easy to use.
Disadvantages: Less power than rivals.
Sony Vaios have built a reputation for themselves as an excellent series of laptops, and this is no exception. It is by no means the highest spec Vaio (as you would expect, as it sits on the lower end of the price spectrum) but it is well suited for home computer use.
The screen is outstanding - sharp and clear, perfect for watching films. Similarly, the keyboard is top notch and of a very high quality. The keys are a good size and are slightly tapered, allowing for easy typing.
There are issues with this laptop and iTunes, which can only be resolved by removing some of the pre-installed Vaio media control programs. Also, the standard graphics card isn't stunning - whilst older games such as Sim City 3000 will run, others like Team Fortress 2 will struggle. This is definitely not a gaming laptop! The laptop uses a Intel Pentium Dual-Core T3400 processor, which is fine for what the laptop is designed to do - run standard office programmes. However, it lacks the power of it's rivals which can let it down.
In conclusion, this is a great laptop for home use but one that gamers and those who require high processing power avoid.
Summary: An excellent laptop for home use, but outclassed by some rivals.
