Sony VAIO VPC-F136FM/B

 

Whether you want to watch Blu-ray movies, render video, or play games, the Sony VAIO VPC-F136FM/B laptop has you covered.

Excellent performance, even while gaming at low resolutions. Keyboard includes 10-key pad. Lots of networking and connectivity options. Two USB 3.0 ports.

Unexceptional design. No touch screen.
