The right panel of the SONY VAIO VGN-T2XRP/S looks like that:
It carries a DVD-burner (an Eject button, an emergency disc extraction hole and an activity indicators are located on the tray), a modem (RJ-11) and a network (RJ-45) connector. The modem and network connectors are neatly gagged with plastic caps that are attached to the case with plastic braces. So, if you don’t need the connectors, you can just keep them shut.
On the rear panel you can only find a power connector and a battery that matches the overall design of the VAIO VGN-T2XRP/S sub-notebook. The battery consists of two cylinders with a smooth transition from one to another which makes the notebook look even smaller visually. The casing of the cylinder the hinges of the lid are located in was a bit loose under my touch, but I hope this is only a minor defect of the particular sample of the notebook.
When I turned the notebook upside down, I could not find covers of memory and hard drive slots. There was nothing there except for a sticker with the notebook’s specification and a vent opening (by the way, this means that you should put the notebook on a solid surface to prevent overheat). To access the notebook’s innards I would have had to take the bottom panel off altogether, and I didn’t want to lose the warranty by doing so. Well, the owner of a Sony VAIO VGN-T2XRP/S this notebook model won’t need to bother about upgrade for a long time because the notebook is equipped well enough. And when the need to upgrade will really arise, buying a completely new notebook will probably be a better decision. :)
