Review Sony Vaio VPC-EA1S1E/L Notebook


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

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

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...

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.

My little pink laptop

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.

Sony Vaio VPC-EA1Z1E


Its is good design and efficient

It comes with alot of pop ups and trials that are really annoying ; I expected the speed of it to be faster since it was one of the better choice. However it is still good
