Excerpt: NEC's Versa S9100 looks as if it should be much heavier than it is, so it's a nice surprise when you pick it up and discover that it's just 1.3kg. This heavy-looking construction makes the laptop very tough. The case feels strong with no flex in it, and the 12.1in 1,280x800 widescreen display feels well protected. The quality of the screen is very high, producing a clean, evenly lit image. Whites were bright, blacks dark and colours vibrant thanks to the glossy screen.
