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...

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...

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...

Good make, lovely looking, comfortable to use

It seems very delicate so I don't think it will survive long with my children (fell on the floor few times)

Most satisfying buy ever

 

being a girl I always wanted a pink laptop...although the white laptop in the same series and configuration was £49 less than the pink one...I did not hesitate to puchase this one as it left me wtih a feeling for complete satisfaction.
