Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-NR240E

80% Sony VAIO VGN-NR240E/W Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
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.
