Sony VAIO E review


Once a popular choice for on-the-go laptop shoppers, the 11-inch laptop has fallen on hard times of late (aside from the $999 11-inch MacBook Air ). It's not quite as steep a drop-off as we saw with the 10-inch Netbook, but you could count the number...

The 11-inch Sony Vaio E has a sharp design at a budget price, plus decent graphics and good battery life.

This 11-inch laptop is thicker and heavier than many 13-inch models. The slow CPU isn't for everyone.

With only a handful of 11-inch laptops still available, serious travelers are flocking to ultrathin 13-inch models instead. But the low price and good battery life of the Sony Vaio E keep it from being counted out.

If you're looking to customize your business laptop, look no further than the Sony Vaio E Series. While the standard options are lacking in several key areas, there are enough options to merit consideration of this business laptop. We would like to see...

This business laptop has good connectivity options

The processing power and battery life on this device are lacking

The Sony Vaio E Series provides a lot of customizability, but needs to offer much more on its standard model.

Sony VAIO E review


The Sony VAIO E has a matte black finish, comes with useful proprietary software and offers very good multimedia experience.

It's not cheap, but the Sony VAIO E is a very good laptop, with a nice feature set and useful proprietary software. If you want a powerful VAIO for the home, look no further than the Sony VAIO E.

The new VAIO E is a 15-inch laptop from Sony that offers very good performance, feature set, and bundled software -- at a price!

Matte finish on screen lid ; Very good performance ; Useful proprietary software ; Good feature set

Poor battery life ; No graphics card

The Sony VAIO E sells for Rs. 52,490, and without a dedicated graphics card, we just feel its price is too steep compared to some of its competitors. But having said that, the Sony VAIO E is still a very good performing laptop, with a nice feature set...

Sony VAIO E review: Core i3 speed and performance


Stomps all over ultra portables for performance, but can't match their battery stamina

Multitasking abilities, lag-free performance, powerful 3D skills

Mediocre battery life

The new Sony VAIO E is a 15.5-inch mainstream lapto, based on the Intel Core i5-520M processor - a cheaper, Intel i3 version is available.

Bottom LineThe Sony VAIO E prices start from £529 (for the 15.5 inch display) and without a dedicated graphics card, we just feel its price is too steep compared to some of its competitors. But having said that, the Sony VAIO E is still a very good...
