Sony VAIO VGN-NR160E




"Sony" and "budget" are two words you typically don't find in the same sentence, but the company has taken the sub-$900 plunge with its new NR Series and surprised us with very good performance. At $829, the VGN-NR160E/S targets consumers who need Core 2 Duo power on a budget. Sony still has some notable issues with crapware, but there's a lot to like about this notebook. It has everything users need for everyday productivity and light multimedia use and offers plenty of style to boot.




10/17/07 – Sony's new VAIO NR160 is a very surprising entry from a company that makes primarily expensive systems. On a whole, they did a very good job with this new system. While the exterior has a bit too much of a plastic feel that isn't as nice as some other budget systems or even Sony's other models, it does offer a solid computing experience for the price.


Sony is known for its strong LCD panels and the one in the NR160 is definitely very good. Color and contrast are above average for the price segment. It doesn't have the high resolution of its more exp
ensive notebooks, but most people won't really notice or care.

It is nice to see that Sony is including features such as the new ExpressCard format into the NR160 notebook. It is just a shame that they decided to use the smaller 34mm rather than 54mm design. This will restrict the number of expansion card products that can be used with the system.
