Sony Vaio E series (VPCEA3S1E) review


The Sony Vaio EA3S1E is a great looking laptop that's comfortable to use and has a speedy processor. It's only let down by its weak battery life and sub-par gaming performance.

Good screen ; Speedy processor ; Great keyboard ; Fun and funky design

Gaming performance could be better ; Short battery life

The EA3 is a well built laptop from Sony that looks stylish and is comfortable to use. It also has a decent amount of grunt under the bonnet. If you're looking for a 14-inch laptop to use primarily on the move, however, Acer's 4820T is a better option...

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 E series (VPCEA3S1E)


Sony VAIOS are great PCs. Only Windows Vista OS was crappy enough to dent their rep.

It's not Apple

Sony Vaio E series (VPCEA3S1E)


Can't help thinking this review is a little late - I've owned this laptop for almost a year now! My model has a 1600x900 screen and it's genuinely fantastic, makes working on two things side-by-side so easy. Can't go back to a lower resolution screen...

Fantastic screen, good construction, the fact it comes in bright green, awesome keyboard and touchpad, plenty of connectivity, fast and responsive
