Sony's rather immense range of VAIO laptops can be more than a little daunting for first-time buyers. Although most high street retailers only stock a handful at any one time, there are actually a huge number of VAIO models, split into various skews...

Arrivés au terme de notre test de ce VAIO Y21 de Sony, la première chose que nous tenons à souligner est son autonomie plutôt exceptionnelle. Sans le moindre doute, nous sommes en présence d'une machine pensée pour la...
