Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-TX850p

Sony VAIO TX850p Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
I would highly recommend the Sony VAIO TX850p for the travelling user (or one who, like me, just likes small devices), who isn't power-hungry, who is versed in computer cleanup and doesn't mind giving their machine a little TLC. I would not recommend this laptop to someone with a budget, gamer, a user who deals with the manipulation of multimedia (i.e. video encoding, audio compression, etc.), or an inexperienced or clumsy user.

Comment

Intel Core Solo: Single core version of the Core Duo and successor of the Intel Pentium M; Because of the 65nm reduced structure width also smaller current consumption than Pentium M (maximally 27 Watts); the performance is comparable with the equivalent clocked Pentium M (somewhat faster because of a few improvements).


U1400: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.
