Sony Vaio EA3S1E review


The bright blue EA3S1E1 certainly stands out from the crowd, with Sony's signature Vaio design looking just as good here as in any other colour. It's not all style over substance however, as there's a solid system underneath.

The EA3S1E combines solid performance and excellent connectivity in a stylish package, but has disappointing battery life.

Sony Vaio VPC-EA3S1E


Poor build quality. I bought two of these - the power connector broke on one after approx 6 months and the hard drive died on the other after just under 2 years. Don't waste your time - get a Mac

Really pleased with purchase,however as this is my first laptop I can`t compare it to any others but so much faster than my desktop! Size may be smaller than others but I found this absolutely fine and would be comfortable watching movies on this...

Mouse could be in another colour as quite difficult to see on the black laptop but not a major issue
