Reviews and Articles:
Mobility Guru – December 2005 – The new TX models improve on the T models such as the T350P in several ways. The most impressive new features are a lighter weight carbon fiber/composite case and battery saving technologies including replacement of the T’s traditional fluorescent backlighting with LED-based backlighting.

TrustedReviews – October 2005 – 9 out of 10, “Recommended” – Very Detailed Review The VAIO TX1XP is a truly great little notebook….I can’t help asking the question – why aren’t all notebooks like this?

PC PRo ( – October 2005 – 5 out of 6 stars, PC Pro Recommended – For Sony to squeeze all these features into a notebook so light and compact is quite simply a feat of genius. When you add the amazing battery life, it’s easy to overlook the VAIO’s failings.
