Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-TX2HP
Source: Pocket Lint Archive.org version
Sony has quite a reputation to uphold with its ultraportable range, especially with companies like Fujitsu Siemens and Lenovo closing in on their style and size formats. Fortunately, Sony is ahead of the game and judging by the VAIO VGN-TX2HP it has little to worry about. This notebook by all rights should be a hot product but the screen technology is no new that there are kinks we just can’t get over. Once Sony solves the bulb-flair problem in reduced light this will be the very best ultraportable on the market - in the meantime it’s just plain great.

If you can't stomach Apple's Mac operating system (see our Mac Mini review and Macbook Pro review), but require a notebook to impress the style-conscious, Sony's TX range should fit the bill. The TX2-HP is the latest member of the gang and, as expected, its small, sleek physique quickly turned heads in the office. Inside this compact case lies an Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) Intel Pentium M 733 processor, which runs at 1.1GHz and employs 2MB of L2 cache and a 400MHz front side bus.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Mobile Intel 915GM chipset. It is the predecessor of Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The performance can be compared with the Mobile Radeon 9000 (with a 64 bit memory bus).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that 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.
In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.
