Reviews and Articles:

HardwareCentral.com – December 2005 – 4 out of 5 stars – As you can tell, we like the Vaio TX670P a lot; it’s a terrific productivity solution for swank, jet-setting execs. That said, it gets another four- instead of HardwareCentral’s rare five-star review score mainly because of the swank factor: The notebook plus your first year’s Cingular data subscription equals $3,480, which is painfully pricey in this age of affordable laptops. But that’s not the heroic Sony engineers’ fault.

PC Magazine – September, 2005 – 4/5 Stars – The Sony VAIO VGN-TX670P is an excellent laptop in terms of performance, design, and innovation.

CNET Reviews – September, 2005 – 8.1/10 – Editor’s Choice – Though we don’t recommend it for heavy-duty computing or gaming, the VAIO VGN-TX670P can easily handle the standard productivity tasks of the typical business traveler, including in-flight DVD viewings.
