I'd say this notebook was significantly easier to use when cutting hair then the opposition. The sleek design and pink colour make location and removal of unwanted hair, fluff and nits a cinch.

On the other hand, wart removal may not be what this notebook was intended for so any would-be backdoor surgeons would be best advised to seek proper medical equipment, or at least a visit a real doctor.

In conclusion - the Sony YB is good at hair and bad at genital surgery.




small, lightweight, well built
keyboard keys feel too small

I'm really happy with the VPCYB16KG as I bought it for a family member who wanted the MacBook Air but couldn't cause their work software had to run on windows. I own a MacBook Air 11" and while that is much lighter and slimmer, the Sony Y series 11" would have to be the best windows 11" available in Australia (the DM1z isn't available here!). The Y series is well designed, really portable and performance is great for it's size, much better than any netbook. My only gripes are the keys could have been made a tad bigger for fat fingers like mine and the battery isn't a snug fit like most laptops.

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.

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.

Simon Harriott


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.
