Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-TX2

Sony VAIO TX Ultraportable Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
I really enjoyed using the Sony TX 770. We are starting to see more and more options in the ultra portable category, and this model is right up there. The wireless capabilities make this a perfect travel companion for those that are constantly on the move and need to have frequent internet access. Sony adds a bit of fun by allowing for instant on music and DVD use. Unfortunately, the laptop is expensive. I hope future models will incorporate a fanless design because the fan noise is constant and can be annoying. A faster hard drive would be nice as well. Overall, the Sony TX770 is a solid business-class ultra portable notebook.

Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.

11.1": This is a quite small display format for subnotebooks. However, most netbooks have an even tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
