The VAIO NS is full of style and features a slim profile for good looks and portability. With smooth rounded corners and edges, the VAIO NS sports a relaxed and natural form that looks good by your side. Gentle curves also keep exterior dimensions to a minimum and ensures the laptop is really easy to slip into a bag or carrying case. A defining characteristic of the VAIO NS is a warm and natural surface texture that's so different from the cold smoothness of most laptops. Designed to complement natural elements in the home, this texture is also very comfortable to hold as your fingers are in touch with individual points rather than a flat surface.

X-Black LCD Screen.
The super sharp clarity of X-black screen technology is a VAIO exclusive feature unrivalled by any other manufacturer. The secret ingredient is the anti-reflection coating - ensuring an absolute smooth surface where rays of light are not broken or diffused. Whether watching movies or gaming, X-black provides the best screen experience in all lighting conditions, with 100% colour fidelity, high brightness, enhanced contrast and a wide viewing angle.

Built-In MotionEye Camera.
Easy-to-use, with integrated auto focus and auto brightness, the built-in camera is perfect for video calls. Being able to see your friends and family when you are online is so much better than just reading their emails.

Windows Vista Home Premium.
Windows Vista Home Premium is the preferred edition of Windows Vista for home desktop and mobile PCs. It delivers more productivity and entertainment at home and on the go making it easy to enjoy digital photos, music, TV, games and movies, while providing a whole new level of security and reliability.

VAIO Movie Story.
VAIO Movie Story is a High Definition home movie editor for creating a home movie in seconds. The software will export in most formats to view on PC, TV, YouTube or PSP.

VAIO Music Box.

VAIO Media Plus.

Top 100  Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer

This Christmas we decided to buy our daughter a laptop, and so began the inevitable grind of going around all the shops looking at all the different models, comparing prices, specifications etc I don't know about you but after a while they all began to look alike and all this talk of GB and processing power leave my head spinning. Then we called into a Sony shop.

The Sony VAIO range of computers are considered very good quality (although I suspect you are paying for the name) but they seemed out of our price range until we discovered the new NS series. Designed as a "budget" or level entry range it seemed ideal and the specifications were as good as many we had looked at. We had to wait until mid January before they became available and when we heard they were doing a pink model, well that clinched it! Afer owning this for nearly a month then I can safely say if you want a powerful spec at a value for money price, choose this laptop.

It holds an Intel Pentium Processor T3400, which easily powers all your office and multimedia apps. Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium deals with multimedia applications, as well as a media centre, which helps you organise all your photos, movies and music. The impressive 3GB Memory means that even memory intensive tasks can run smoothly and without hitch.It has a built in webcam which delivers very good quality pictures (and there's nio hassle with screen mounted cameras & installation) A 15.4" screen delivers clear, bright picture quality.

Thanks to 4 USB connections, you can hook up your external devices like mp3 player, printer, digital camera and more for easy data transfer. It also holds a memory stick slot for downloading data from your memory stick.

It also has a DVD Rewriter Drive, which lets you burn information to a wide variety of DVD discs. This means that you can always keep long-lasting copies of all your most important data, meaning you never have to lose those precious digital photographs again.

Finally, it comes in a soft pink colour for a sleek but fun finish, and ideal for a teenage girl. We saw this model in silver but it looked basic and I could not belive how much better it looks in pink!

I ordered this laptop on 9th April thinking it would be a couple of weeks as it was easter, but it arrived today! I am very impressed with the very quick and efficient delivery especially as I live outside of the UK. This is a very good all-round laptop. I would recommend this laptop to everyone.
