Sony VAIO review: VGN-AW21XY/Q

Only an elite few machines soar above the £2,000 mark, and those that do need something special to justify the outlay. This Sony VAIO just about does it.

The RGB LED screen, Blu-ray writer and awesome specification result in the best all-round desktop replacement on the market.
