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.

Sony Vaio VPCCA1S1E hands-on test


We admire Sony's guts for giving the Vaio VPCCA1S1E such an unusually luminous design. Not everyone will like it, but we do, and the laptop's performance should be good too. This 14-inch laptop is one to watch.

Bright, bold and quirky design ; Meaty Intel Core i5 processor ; Dedicated graphics card

Colourful design definitely isn't for everyone

The Sony Vaio VPCCA1S1E looks like a reasonably priced machine that will offer solid performance. If you like its design, it could be well worth a look. Stay tuned for a full review soon

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...
