Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-NR460E/L
Source: Comp Reviews Archive.org version
Sony's VAIO NR460E/W is one of the few laptops that the company sells for under $750. For this price, you get a fairly substandard system in terms of performance but one that has a large amount of style. This will probably be the most dertmining factor of whether an individual will purchase it over another budget laptop computer.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
