Review Sony Vaio VPC-SE1Z9E/B Notebook

 

Business deluxe. Sony focuses on its strengths and installs a first rate (matt) Full HD screen. There is also a gaming capable graphics and pro features, such as docking port, UMTS and battery slice. The perfect fusion of work and entertainment? ...

Matt FHD screen; Good TFT contrast; 90° viewing angles, even vertically (rare); Good brightness (sensor); Ports incl. docking and battery slice; UMTS module; Light sensitive Exmor webcam; Keyboard light; Spacious key layout; Good application performance

Inputs: weak feedback; High noise during load; High waste heat during load; Short battery life; Flexible case/hinges

The short battery life of this 3G model isn't acceptable for mobile workers. Feedback strong keys would have been perfect

Sony VAIO VPC-SE16FX/S

 

The Sony VAIO VPC-SE16FX/S laptop is a compelling package, with a commuter-friendly thin design, a high-definition display, and a potent combination of processing and graphics hardware.

Slim, lightweight design. Widescreen 1080p display. Automatic brightness and backlight adjustment. Intel Core i5 CPU and AMD discrete graphics makes for a powerful combination. Blu-ray player. WiDi 2.0.

Needs an extra battery for real endurance. Small touches, like the keyboard and touchpad, felt unrefined.

Sony Vaio SE Series review

 

If Sony knows how to do something well, it's creating slick-looking laptops. Recent examples include the very high-end 13-inch Vaio Z and the more modest Vaio E series, which still manages to have plenty of flair despite the midrange price. The latest...

The discrete graphics and optional slice battery on the stylish Sony Vaio SE help it stand out from other midsize laptops, and the included TPM chip should play nice with your IT department.

The AMD graphics switching remains tied to a clunky physical switch, and without the extra slice, battery life is merely OK.

Sony knocks out another stylish system with the 15-inch Vaio SE, with some extra appeal for business users.

Sony VAIO S 15-inch (VPCSE16FX/B)

 

With the 15-inch VAIO S, Sony just opened up a second front in its laptop war against Apple. Just as the 13-inch VAIO S challenged the similarly sized MacBook Pro, this larger mainstream system goes head to head against the 15-inch MacBook Pro . And...

Sony VAIO SE Series review

 

A sumptuous Full HD screen is complemented by a host of other pedigree components – highly recommended

There’s some tough competition out there, not least the gorgeous Samsung 700Z Chronos, but Sony’s VAIO SE Series has an unusual array of talents. That stunning Full HD display is the centrepiece of a superbly flexible all-rounder, and whether you plump...

The Sony Vaio is pretty good, but not for everyone.

 

Overall, the Sony Vaio is a very nice machine, but, as said before, is not for everyone. A student studying in a library or any other place that requires silence would probably get kicked out. Someone who would like to play games on this laptop...

Has a nice weight for traveling. Looks stylish. The Blu-Ray disc feature is very good for people who like to watch HD movies on-the-go.

My biggest concern about the machine, believe it or not, is the noise it makes. This laptop possibly has the loudest fan I have ever heard on a computer in my life. The i3 processor is nice, but slightly outdated.

Good design wasted...definitely not worth it...!!

 

I have previously owned Envy 14 and Toshiba satellite models and recently using vaio SE series laptop.The display looks great with 1080P and has good keyboard and touchpad. Design is excellent and extremly light weight. But it has some very annoying...

Excellent Display, Good processing speed once its fully on, Great design, Really light weight, One of the best keyboards, Touchpad feels nice.

Annoying Sony features, No manual control over keyboard backlite which is very frustrating at times. stamina/speed control is very cranky, Very slow start up, Display shuts off each time when switching from plugged in to battery or vice versa.
