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

Expert review by: What Laptop (



We are so used to VAIO laptops being a cut above, that this one left us underwhelmed

Decent 3D performance ; Good usability ; Good quality screen

Average battery life ; Average performance ; Basic connectivity

All in all, this is a good, if unremarkable, mid-level laptop from Sony, especially if you value the VAIO brand.
