    Comments about Sony VAIO SA4 VPCSA45GX/BI 13.3" Notebook (Jet Black):

    Primarily used for business, both in the office and traveling. Very compact and lightweight. Great battery life when in stamina mode, not that great in speed mode. Screen is a bit small for everyday use, but I have it hooked up to a 23" LCD via the HDMI port. Resolution is great.
