If you’re after something that magically combines excellent performance with strong portability, and throws in a few great features for good measure, then the VAIO VPCSB1V9E is the laptop for you. Priced at just under a grand, if you can afford it, go for it.

Sony VAIO S Series Hands-On
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The 'low-end' model, which should cost a very reasonable £900 or so, comes in a silver finish and lacks 3G, while the far more attractive high-end offering - which will set you back around £1,000 - sports a black exterior and has 3G built-in (but we'd go for the latter based on looks alone). You can expect both these beauties from the end of March.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display 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.


1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
