Sony Vaio VPC-EB1S0E/WI review

 

Sony has struck gold with this excellent all-round laptop

Great performance ; Good keyboard and build quality ; eSATA and HDMI ; Good 3D power

Screen not as good as other Sony models ; Glitter effect may put off some people

The all round performance and build quality of this laptop make it one of the best in the current crop of Vaio models

Sony Vaio VPC-EB1S0E/WI review

 

This Vaio EB1S0E is the first laptop we've seen to use Intel's new Core i3 mobile processor, and so we couldn't wait to benchmark it. An overall score of 77 may not sound much, but considering that it's equivalent to the fastest laptop in our recent...

A gorgeous design and a fast, new processor make the EB1S0E stand out, but the screen isn't as good as it could be.

Sony Vaio EB1Z0E review

 

Sony's Vaio EB1Z0E is one of the best looking laptops around, with its sleekly understated black chassis. We expected a lot from Sony's latest and the EC1S1EB delivers on all fronts, with a range of features that's among the best we've seen from any...

The Vaio EB1Z0E has a great specification and performance that's among the best for a laptop of its price and size. Despite its slightly cramped touchpad, the Blu-ray player and HD-capable display make this a worthy winner of our Best Buy award.

Looks good.

Shocking battery life. Fan never turns down and is louder than a jet. Waste of money, I'd never buy Sony again!

it is quick torespond and also very good with the work i do with it
