Style and substance: 7 notebooks to make your co-workers jealous

These notebooks that look stylish but they aren't especially friendly on your wallet


Sony's VAIO VGNP15GG notebook is very small and extremely sexy. The company claims the VAIO VGNP15GG is the world's lightest notebook, weighing just 594g — that's less than a 1kg bag of, um, anything. Its display is small but impressive (though it has a slightly unusual resolution of 1600x768). If you're eager to void your warranty you can crack this ultraportable open and check out the 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU, 2GB of DDR2 RAM and 64GB SSD. The size of the Sony VAIO VGNP15GG means you can slip it (at least part way) into a pocket — at least, according to the promotional images released by Sony. Sadly its small size probably makes it a little impractical for everyday work computing. Sony's discontinued this particular P series model, but you still might be able to pick one up — and hopefully, for less than the $2099 it originally cost.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
