First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Top 5 notebooks
- — 21 January, 2011 10:31
Our Top 5 laptops list is dominated by small and light models from Dell, HP, Sony and Toshiba, which range in size from 10.1in to 13.3in. However, we have also included the comparatively huge Medion Akoya E7216 (MD98550), which goes on sale at Aldi supermarkets on Thursday, 27 January. It's a 17.3in laptop with plenty of great features (including USB 3.0 and HDMI) and good performance, and it only costs $799.
There is definitely something for everyone here; whether you want a great netbook, a small and light notebook with decent speed or an affordable desktop replacement with plenty of features, we've got you covered.
4 / 5
The Sony VAIO Y Series ultraportable notebook represents good value in our opinion. It's very small and light, it's nicely designed and it feels comfortable to use for the most part. Under the hood it features a Core i3 CPU, which gives it ample power to tackle office tasks and Web browsing. We like it a lot.
