Sony VAIO VGN-TT190NIB
Sleek, carbon-fiber chassis; includes Blu-ray drive and HDMI port; twin 128GB solid-state hard drives, 16:9 display; excellent battery life.
Painfully expensive; faster than Atom-powered Netbooks, but still not a speed demon.
Small laptops have become synonymous with low-cost Netbooks, but Sony's Vaio TT reminds us why some ultraportables can cost almost 10 times as much (hint: the 256GB SSD helps).
