Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-TX2XP/B

Sony - Vaio VGN-TX2XP review
Source: IT Reviews English
If you like your notebooks small and fully functional, then Sony's Vaio VGN-TX1XP must be one of your objects of desire, with its winning combination of small size, light weight, usable keyboard and long battery life. Not one to rest on its laurels, Sony has upgraded parts of the older TX1XP to bring us the Vaio VGN-TX2XP. To its credit, Sony hasn't tinkered with the TX chassis for this latest version, and with good reason; it's pretty near perfect as it is.

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.
