Review Sony Vaio VPC-F13L8E/H (FHD) Notebook

 

Low-Cost Titan. The cheapest model in the F-series with full HD,

Good performance; Stable case; Many interfaces inc. USB 3.0; Full HD resolution; Blu-ray reader; Low heat dissipation; Good feedback from keyboard and touchpad; Good input device layout

TFT reflective; Small color space / contrast; Noise from the cooling fan; Short battery run times; Weak gaming performance

The devious cooling fan doesn't want to disappear from the headlines. With a little practice this can be ignored though, just like a bad headline in a newspaper.
