Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-NR240E
Source: Comp Reviews
Sony has come a long ways in producing lower cost notebook systems. The VAIO VGN-NR240E/W is still one of the more expensive budget notebooks available on the market but it does provide more storage space than the competition and in a very stylish case design. It is too bad that Sony cut a few corners in order to reduce the price otherwise this would definitely be one of the best on the market.

It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.
