Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-NS235J/S
Source: Comp Reviews
Sony's VAIO NS series of laptops may be their value line but they are still fairly expensive to similarly equipped laptops from other companies. So, why the extra cost? It really comes down to the style of the laptop. Sony definitely builds their laptops to look and feel better than the other companies, but performance wise it really isn't anything different from a laptop that can be found for over a hunder dollars less.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
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.
T3400: Merom based entry-level Pentium Dual-Core processor with some reduced power saving functions compared to Core 2 Duo CPUs.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
