Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-CA190X
With a weight of 2.3kg, the VAIO CA can definitely be carried around if needed. Be warned that the 39mm chassis is fairly bulky, however, so you'll need to clear some space in your bag first.

We didn't get any indications of battery life or price, but availability is expected from the 21st of March. To be honest we're cautiously impressed, though it will all depend on how affordable Sony makes its colourful laptops. But considering the eminently reasonable pricing on its new S Series, we're hopeful these may come in at below £600, which – based on what we've seen so far - would make them great mainstream options.

Sony's C Series laptop isn't one for the faint-hearted. The 14.4-inch screen toting notebook comes in an array of colours, from nuclear-green to sunshine orange and sports a HD video camera and HDMI out. We doned our sunglasses for this first look video.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
