Review Sony Vaio VPC-EA1S1E/L Notebook

 

Lifestyle Statement. What exactly makes Sony's EA-Series more sty

Exclusive looking material; Good overall workmanship; High 1600 x 900 resolution; Good keyboard with firm response; eSATA & ExpressCard34

Low battery life; Sporadic exhaust fan under stress; Hardly any gaming performance; Low contrast; Glossy display; High-toned speakers

The same hardware with better battery life for 650 Euro: Acer Aspire 5741G-334G50Mn. More 3D-performance at the same price: Sony Vaio VPC-CW2S1E/L. Great battery life but with a CULV-CPU, weaker performance: Acer Aspire 4810T. Also very pretty but made...

Sony VAIO E Series (VPC-EA1S1E/P) - 14in Laptop

 

If you like bright, bold colours you'll like the Sony VAIO E Series. If not…well, you get the idea.

Good quality display ; Generous resolution ; Very good keyboard

Limited touchpad ; Disappointing sound range ; Poor horizontal viewing angles

Also included is Sony's Quick Web Access instant-on browser. It takes the web browser element from DeviceVM's Slashtop operating system, serving it up in around 25 seconds upon pressing the WEB button above the keyboard. It's the kind of useful...

A beautifully-made laptop, the VPC-EA1S1E/L has average performance, battery life and multimedia features, and its design is the only thing that really tands out.

Sony Vaio VPC-EA1Z1E/L review

 

Sony's Vaio laptops have a reputation for style and build quality, and the new 14in Vaio E Series is a good example of this. It comes in a choice of colours and the sturdy chassis really impressed us. For example the power button merges with the edge...

Sony Vaio VPC-EA1S1E

 

The laptop is a great combination of size and power. If you want a laptop that is reasonable small, but packed with great specs, then this one is for you. It is stylish, quite light, has a great screen, starts fast, is packed with extra Sony Software...

Battery life...... Mmmmm. Not so great. Work on around an hour and a half to 2 hours max. Ok for me as I am usually near a plug.

Sony Vaio VPC-EA1S1E

 

Lightweight considering the size of the laptop

Ridiculously reduced battery life-loses 80% charge with half-an-hour of WLAN internet browsing! The power button is easily pressed when holding the laptop so it switches off The plastic outercasing on the lid makes it look quite cheap
