Quick Review Sony Vaio SVE-1111M1E/P Subnotebook


Standstill. The new AMD platform Brazos 2.0 has hit the market wi

usable keys; average battery lifetime; low power consumption; USB 3.0

constant fan noise; low stability chassis; partly too small keys; low travel clickpad; glossy screen; narrow viewing angles; poor application performance; poor games performance; slow hard disk

The YB-Models had a solid chassis and kept very cool. Why is that no longer possible?

Sony SVE1111M1E


I love the Sony features such as Vaio Gate and Vaio Care. I find the keyboard comfortable and responsive. The appearance and feel are a solid, good quality buiild. I'm no technical expert so can't comment too much on performance - all I can say is it...

Rather heavier than other brands. Pricey too although hopefully will have a long lifespan. Occasionally I miss having a disc drive but sacrificed this for more portability. Battery life is not brilliant, about 3 hours seems average.

right out of the box the battery life even with all the eco features switched off won't charge to 100%. This is rubbish and the stated 7 hour life never exists other than on a bench test. The vaio care system is anoying and you have to accept their...
