At the risk of sounding shallow and superficial, I confess that I’m one of those that may purchase a laptop purely based on its good looks. In the past decade, manufacturers like Apple and Sony have placed great emphasis on producing beautiful laptops. My job requires me to carry my laptop with me wherever I go so I have decided to get my self a mini laptop or netbook. If I am to carry a laptop with me wherever I go, it might as well look good, so I have purchased the super sleek Sony VAIO VGN-P530H/Q Lifestyle PC (black).
The Sony VAIO VGN-P530H/Q Lifestyle PC is thinner than most netbooks in the market. In fact, it is as thin as a mobile phone. One of my favorite features of this model is its sleek design. It is more rectangular than other netbooks in the market, measuring at 9.7 inches long and 4.8 inches wide. It weighs at just 1.4 pounds making it a truly portable mini laptop.
The Sony VAIO GN-P530H/Q Lifestyle PC is not all good looks and no substance. Hidden behind its beautiful design is a feature packed mini laptop. This netbook is also a GPS navigator. You can use this notebook to navigate and find directions even without an internet connection (in the USA and Canada). By using the GPS function you can find directions and navigate to your desired location within the 50 miles radios from where you are.
Instead of your regular LCD display, this model comes with a 1600 x 768 resolution that runs on Xbrite-eco technology with LEC back lights. The keyboard’s design is pretty refreshing as it is usually a challenge to do any heavy word processing on a netbook’s keyboard. The shift keys are very strategically located and typing on this Sony netbook feels very much like typing on a regular keyboard. It is powered by a 1.3Ghz Intel processor and comes with 2GB of RAM. It also comes with a 60GB ATA hard drive.
