It's all very well having a bright pink laptop or a laptop sprinkled in crystals, but when you're travelling with your laptop in your bag, in all likelihood you're not going to be too chuffed on how light your laptop is and how much it's causing you back pain.

Weighing just 984 grams the Sony Vaio Type G laptop is looking to save your spine. You get a 12.1" screen, built in Wifi and Bluetooth, 80GB hard drive, 2 USB ports, and a whopping 12 hours of battery life in stamina mode as well!

10 most harmful health gadgets

Over at PCMag.com they have a round up on the 10 most harmful health gadgets around.

I quite like the wireless heartrate device actually, but the other nine are pretty dangerous; don't you agree?! Especially the snorestopper!

Take a look at the 10 most harmful health gadgets, see what you think...
