Sony's slim new VAIO too big for its britches

[photopress:vaio.jpg,full,left]Being the largest ultraportable is something of a dubious honor, like being the healthiest model or the least-convicted child rapist, but Sony wears it with pride, touting its new VAIO VGN-SZ750N/C laptop as just such a beast.

And the description is true, at only four pounds, it definitely fits as an ultraportable in weight, but the 13.3-inch LED backlit display gives it a very big footprint, something most people don’t care for in ultraportables.

The rest of the specs are impressive, this thing’s got power, but, like the MacBook Air, I just don’t get it, espsecially at $1,899.
