IRL Review Bowers and Wilkins P5 Series 1 Premium Headphone Review

IRL Review Bowers and Wilkins P5 Series 1 Premium Headphone Review- the P5 series 1 was a headphone I wanted dreadfully for a really long time.

IRL Review Sony VAIO AW Desktop Replacement Laptop

IRL Review Sony VAIO AW Desktop Replacement Laptop- The VAIO AW is a model I lusted after for some time- certainly I had always had a fascination for ultraportables far more than mainstream and desktop replacement laptops.

Sony VAIO Pro 13 IRL Review

Sony VAIO Pro 13 IRL Review- The Sony VAIO Pro 13 is Sony’s answer to the Macbook Air 13 (with a Pro 11 targeting the Pro 11). Weighing 2.3 lbs, its much smaller in weight compared to the 2.96 lb Macbook Air 13, and incredible in that 3 years later, it still holds its own against…
