IRL Review- Sony VAIO F1 Desktop Replacement Laptop

IRL Review- Sony VAIO F1 Desktop Replacement Laptop- The F1 is probably one of the most exciting laptops I have ever reviewed. Just kidding- its kind of forgettable.

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.

IRL Review Sony VAIO X Ultraportable Laptop (ULTRAULTRAULTRAPORTABLE)

IRL Review VAIO X Ultraportable Laptop-  Years ago while perusing Notebookreview.com and reading Laptop Mag’s advertisements from Sony,  I ran across the VAIO X505.

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…

Logitech MX Anywhere Performance Mouse IRL review

Logitech MX Anywhere Performance Mouse IRL Review- The Logitech MX Anywhere is a portable mouse that was the first generation of its lineage (I believe it is now the MX Anywhere 2). I have had this for a good several years and that is about it. It is a portable laptop mouse that is pretty…

Review: HP TX1000 Tablet PC

Review: Hewlett PAckard TX1000 series Tablet PC: The TX1000 was one of the remnants of the tablet PC era where tablets were poorly designed and widely unused. Unable to gain traction in the mainstream consumer eye, they went for years being a niche product until the iPad blew everything out the water and everyone needed a…
