Review Sony Vaio VPC-SB1Z9EB Subnotebook


Private business. Intelligent battery and docking concept, on/off

Good battery runtimes; Matt, bright display; Low weight; Cool in idle; High application performance; Entry level 3D performance; Docking + slice port; HSDPA installed (optional); High-end surfaces; Good keyboard feedback; Illuminated keyboard

Loud during 3D and CPU load; Weak TFT contrast; Narrow viewing angles; Manual GPU switch; Flaws in stability; Mouse keys with short key drop

Heat development and the partly covered vent let some readers fear the worst. But apart from the maximum noise, heat and racket remained acceptable.
