Picture_6The XN1 is neither a notebook nor extreme. Let’s discuss: Though striking similar to Sony’s LT series, the XN1 is nowhere near as polished. And its specs keep it mired in mediocrity; its 1.87-Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo and 2-GB RAM are entry-level fodder, and a skimpy 80-GB hard drive is simply unacceptable.
