Sony VAIO VPCEL1E1E laptop review

 

Sony's VAIO laptop range is one of the most desirable and dependable out there. Including the likes of the slim-yet-powerful Z-Series and the impressively light S-Series, these laptops might be priced over the competition but still offer incredible value.

Excellent usability ; Vibrant screen ; Good for work and play

Weak lid ; Unexciting design
