Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-A250

66% Sony VAIO VGN-A250 Review
Source: Laptop Logic English
There isnt enough to dislike about the Sony VAIO VGN-A250 that would convince me to not consider owning one. It has one of the most unique and attractive designs found in a laptop. Although its a bit bulky to carry around, the A250 is actually lighter then other desktop replacements from Toshiba and HP. The 15.4-inch WXGA screen with XBRITE is an absolute stunner. Movies, pictures, and Windows in general appear to be richer, brighter, and sharper than non-XBRITE screens. It should also be mentioned that there are competing XBRITE technologies, such as HPs BrightView and TruBrite in Toshibas. The integrated Dual-Layer DVD burner, Wi-Fi LAN, ports, and multimedia software adds to its list of great features. The machine is above average in performance but it makes it up by running incredibly quiet and cool.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon 9200: It is a DirectX 8.1 capable laptop graphic card, which is only comparable with the performance of integrated graphic cards. However, for old games it is still sufficient. It is a higher clocked ATI Mobility Radeon 9000.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
