Review Sony Vaio VPC-CA1S1E Notebook


Beacon buoy. "Envious" looks will be a sure thing with the CA ran

Solid build; Autonomously luminescent surfaces; Striking material combination; Quiet & cool; High application performance; Good input devices; Viable battery life; USB 3.0 & 1.3 MP webcam

Few interfaces; Intensely reflective display; Low contrasts & viewing angles; Only for undemanding 3D games

Sony has the fan management under control. The temperature stays low and the easygoing fan doesn't overdo it with noise.

The CA1S1E is a great showcase for the new mobile Sandy Bridge processors. It's a stylish laptop with great performance.

Sony - Vaio C Series VPC-CA1S1E


As you'd expect from Sony, the new Vaio C Series is something of a looker. Our review model was the white version of this mid-range lifestyle laptop which comes in a choice of four other colours: ...

The Vaio C Series has a lot going for it on a number of fronts, not the least of which is the excellent build quality and stylish appearance. It's a quiet running and pretty well specified machine with enough pep to run games, albeit without any bells...
