We Like
This is a great little mini Netbook with an 8in screen... and it is superbly beautiful. Sony have worked out that sexy gadgets sell better.
There are some really neat ideas, such as built-in GPS, so you can use mapping.

We Don't Like
It’s not cheap – you’re looking at around £1,000 plus, so it’s definitely at the top end of the market.
The battery life is a bit of a letdown, lasting for only four hours.
My problem with Sonys is that they do tend to pack lots of software on to the computer that you don’t want, so I always find myself spending a lot of time uninstalling the ones I don’t use.

Rating
It’s a lovely netbook, but wait for Windows 7 to come out before buying.
