74. Sony VAIO 505GX

Year: 1998

The VAIO 505GX was a super slim and light subnotebook that offered a 10-inch-wide keyboard for better typing accuracy, along with 32GB of RAM and 2.1 GB hard drive. Sony's creation was viewed as one of the fancier laptops that combined great aesthetics with horsepower—a rarity to say the least in 1998. The only thing that wasn't attractive about the 505GX was its $2,699 price tag. Ouch.
