Sony Vaio BZ

From £793

Sony
has built a reputation for producing slick designer laptops, but the BZ
range focuses squarely on the corporate market with its rather bland
black casing and subdued appearance. Looks apart, it’s well built and a
magnesium alloy chassis should help it to survive life on the road.
However, it’s no lightweight, at a smidgen under 2.6kg.

The
fingerprint scanner works well, the keyboard is sensibly spaced, and it
has a neat anti-spill coating, which Sony says should save it were you
to chuck a cup of coffee at it. The 15.4-inch screen is sharp and
clear, and is great for watching DVDs on. Overall, the BZ is a good,
dependable machine. Performance-wise, it’s average but boasts a solid
build quality and a keyboard that will win it many friends in the
corporate environment.

PROS Dependable with a decent keyboard

CONS Looks chunky
