Sony VAIO E Series VPC-EE23FX/T - 15.5" - Athlon II X2 P320 - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - 4 GB RAM - 320 GB HDD

With only a handful of 11-inch laptops still available, serious travelers are flocking to ultrathin 13-inch models instead. But the low price and good battery life of the Sony Vaio E keep it from being counted out.

Sony VAIO W Series VPC-W111XX/W - 10.1" - Atom N280 - Win XP Home - 1 GB RAM - 160 GB HDD

Attempting to create a premium-priced version of a Netbook, Sony has added an HD display to the Vaio W. It's an attractive step-up package, but the internal components are the same as are in cheaper models.

Sony VAIO TP1 Living Room PC (Core 2 Duo T5600 1.83GHz, 2GB RAM, 300GB HDD, Vista Home Premium)

Sony's distinctive, midrange VAIO TP1 Living Room PC trades performance and features for its cutesy appearance. Unless you really like the looks of this Roomba-like PC you can find a much better deal from a variety of standard desktop PCs.
