I won't go into too much detail about the chassis as I've already
covered it in my Sony Vaio VGN-SZ2XP review, but I will go over the most
salient points. The first is the very thin display. This is due to Sony
using an LED backlight. This enables the screen to be noticeably thinner
than conventional laptop displays that use Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp
technology. It also means that the laptop tapers from the back to the
front making it easier to hold, while the wedge shape is easier on the eye.
