Dell vs. Sony: Budget laptop design

Everyone is getting into the sub-$1,000 laptop game, even Sony. Traditionally, its VAIO laptops have been high in style and high in price. Now, the company sells not one but three different VAIO series that start at less than $1,000.

In this photo gallery, I'll take a closer look at the design of the Sony VAIO NR160 and the Dell Inspiron 1420.
