Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-TX2XP/B
Source: IT Reviews
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.
