Sony Vaio VGN-TX850p
Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-TX850p
I would highly recommend the Sony VAIO TX850p for the travelling user (or one who, like me, just likes small devices), who isn't power-hungry, who is versed in computer cleanup and doesn't mind giving their machine a little TLC. I would not recommend this laptop to someone with a budget, gamer, a user who deals with the manipulation of multimedia (i.e. video encoding, audio compression, etc.), or an inexperienced or clumsy user.

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.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
