Sony Vaio VGN NR485 scored only 78 point on PCWorld review test. This notebook has positive feature like it’s nice design and good battery life but it also has some weakness on Unsatisfyingly short keystrokes and Hard drive not user upgradable. A Windows Vista Home Premium laptop powered by a 2-GHz Core 2 Duo T5750 and 2GB of RAM, the VGN-NR485 bagged a respectable WorldBench 6 score of 75. That’s pretty solid performance for a laptop that stands among the cheapest notebook of it’s class. It sells for $849 and It has the speed to handle almost any kind of application except 3D gaming tests, which the VGN-NR485 couldn’t run because of its lousy integrated Intel graphics chip.
The keyboard is a matter of taste. If you can ignore the somewhat short stroke, it’s comfortable, featuring keys with spacious flat tops. A solid performer with all the most important connections, loads of storage, and an eye-catching dark-blue finish, the Sony VGN-NR485 is a sweet little deal for the under-$1000 notebook.
