Sony Vaio VGN-TZ250N
Sony Vaio VGN-TZ250N
Price: $2,200
Weight: 2.7 pounds
Size: 11"x8"x1"
Battery life: 3 hours
Speed: 1.2GHz
Ram: 2GB
Grade: B+

Ergonomics: The Vaio is thin, light and generally comfortable to use, though Chiclet-size keys might turn off some.

Performance: It's strong on wireless networking options rather than processing power. And it's expensive for what you get.

Bottom line: This well-designed computer is great for personal computing. (You can get it in black, pink or champagne.) But for business? Not so much.
