Sony VGNNR31JS Laptop Review

vgnnr31jsThe Sony Vaio VGNNR31JS is a great laptop that packs in a fair few cool features at a very good price. It features a 15.4″ X-Black screen that provides a fantastic image at a resolution of 1280×800 pixels.

The processor is an Intel Pentium Dual-Core running at 1.86GHz which provides a nice bit of speed for running all your applications. To help out there is 2GB of DDR2 SDRAM that allows Windows Vista to run all the fancy options. On the storage side of things you will find a 250GB hard drive and a DVD+-RW/+-R DL/RAM drive (full read/write speed specs below). What impresses me about this laptop is the graphics card. There is no on-board card that eats in to your RAM and instead you get an NVIDIA® GeForce® 8400M GT GPU card that allows for playing graphic intensive games on the laptop. On the connectivity side the Sony Vaio VGNNR31JS is not lacking either. It has 4 USB ports (2.0), a modem (should you ever need to use it) and Wireless LAN running at 802.11a/b/g.

Although this Sony Vaio is not fully feature packed it still has an impressive amount of RAM, processing power, graphics power and storage space along with a crystal clear X-Black screen to make it a seriously good buy.
