The Sony Vaio VGN-FW351 is a refined, attractive laptop, keeping in line with Sony's trademark high-end aesthetics. Decked out in a gray and silver palette called Titanium Gray, the system is reminiscent of an Apple MacBook Pro, but the respectably loud speakers are above the keyboard instead of off to the sides and the keys themselves are white, not black. (This is a fixed retail-only configuration; a version with a black keyboard is available directly from Sony.)

Product summary

The good: Blu-ray combo drive; separate multimedia controls; attractive design.

The bad: Slow performance for a system in this price range; resolution isn't suited for 1080p Blu-ray content.

The bottom line: While its overall specs are somewhat lower end for the price, the Sony Vaio VGN-FW351J/H makes up for it with sharp design and Blu-ray playback.
