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.

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

Chic design, wonderful keyboard, nice screen display

poor audio, basically you cannot amplify any music (so that you are not the only one who are sitting close enough to enjoy it) because it will ruin it. something must be wrong with its hardware, for its screen turns black and then the machine shuts...

Sony Vaio VPC-EA3S1E

 

The Laptop isn't too small, its light, and I am in love with its vibrant colour. It runs efficiently, its got a lot more power than I had expected. Its a good laptop.

The Battery life could be better. a Mere 2.5 hours. I expected a little more, but then again, I don't really have my laptop unplugged, so this isn't so much an issue for me, but might be for others.

Sony Vaio VPC-EA3S1E

 

- A very bold and beautiful design; I am always getting compliments about how good the laptop looks. It's actually a lot more aesthetically pleasing in real life that it is in the photos. - Runs Ubuntu Natty 11.04 with no issues at all. - Works really...

- Speakers can be a little quiet; to use it to watch movies or shows me and my husband need to connect it up to external speakers. - Webcam isn't brilliant.
