Review Sony Vaio SV-E1712F1EW Notebook

 

Dull? A lot of multimedia notebook for a small price - that is wh

Good input devices; Acceptable case quality; Good balance between CPU and GPU performance; Fair price

High noise in idle state; Weak speakers; Display with tight viewing angles; Short battery life

We have focused mainly on the HP Pavilion g7, although there are a number of alternatives: Lenovo's G780, the Acer Aspire V3-771G and the Packard Bell EasyNote LS11-HR are in the same price range, depending on the configuration.
