On looks and usability alone, not to mention the price, the Sony VAIO VPCEB3J0E/WI is a great choice for a family laptop to handle everyday typing and multimedia tasks. Even though the battery life is below average, we would still recommend the VAIO to any beginner looking to combine great performance with that extra touch of style.

If you're after a stylish laptop that won't break the bank, this ivory stunner -- the Sony Vaio VPCEB3J0E/WI -- might fit the bill.

Its relatively low price tag helps to make it an even more tempting proposition.
