Sony Vaio VPCY216FX/G Notebook Computer Review


Today I am looking at the Sony Vaio VPCY216FX/G notebook computer. The notebook is one of the business models that Sony has and offers decent performance for a reasonable price. The machine is well built for the money and if you are in the market for a...

Noisy laptop, mediocre battery


I love NewEgg and buy all my peripherals here, but one cannot know if a laptop is right for you until you hold it in your hands. Buy your laptops somewhere else. Lesson learned.

It looks good and does not contain too much bloatware. The keyboard is great, the screen is also very readable and images look good. I replaced a 2 year old HP ultralight with this computer. No performance improvement, as far as I could tell, which is...

Some likes, dislikes


I got an ASUS UL30A and this at about the same time. Overall I prefer the ASUS for myself, but I got the Sony for my daughter. The Sony is more rugged and the keyboard is the best I've ever seen a laptop. Good solid feel. The display is OK, but perhaps...
