Review: Sony Vaio Z-Series VPCZ125GX/B


Sony Vaio Z-Series VPCZ125GX/B 7/10 Learn How We Rate Wired A powerhouse computer in an ultra-thin and light package. Looks good. Filled with features above...

A powerhouse computer in an ultra-thin and light package. Looks good. Filled with features above and beyond the call of duty

Ungodly expensive. Ultra-dim display is baffling and wrong. Wireless toggle switch is easy to bump off. Keys are a little small, touch-typing can be rocky. LCD is disconcertingly floppy
