Sony Vaio VPCEC3S0E/WI review

 

A great-looking, high-powered desktop replacement that's very easy to like

Light for a 17-inch laptop ; Plenty of graphics power ; Dedicated numeric keypad ; Great looks

Screen not Full HD ; Battery life not great

Offering stunning big-screen usability and ample power, the VAIO PCEC3S0E/WI is a fantastic home laptop
