Review Sony Vaio VPC-EB1S1E/BJ Notebook

 

Multimedia Surprise? Sony presents chic multimedia notebooks that

Chic design; Good application and gaming performance; Light case; Compact size

Fast smudging wrist-rest; Reflective display; Display with a poor luminosity, mediocre black value and miserable contrast; Instable display bezel; Unfavorable interface distribution; Yielding keyboard; Disappointing sound; Inadequate battery life;...

Quite efficient, 15 inch multimedia notebooks for less than 1000 euro. For example, Acer's Aspire 5740G, Toshiba's Satellite A500, Samsung's R580 and Packard Bell's TJ75 would count to these.
