Review Sony Vaio VPC-Y21S1E Subnotebook

 

Core Refresh. Sony trades the Core 2 Duo SU7300 for a Pentium U5400, but keeps its successful concept. Integrated graphics, aluminum/magnesium case and a keyboard with a strong feedback. Will summer really be fun with the 13.3 incher?

Good battery life, Solid case, High-end surfaces, Good keyboard, Quiet & cool, Low energy requirement, Fast hard disk, FireWire & ExpressCard34, Light and yet solid. More manufacturers should use an aluminum/magnesium alloy

TFT display too dark, Comparatively low performance, TFT not AR coated, A matt and bright display - that would have saved the mobility factor and the rating: Very Good

Sony Vaio Y series (VPCY21S1E) review

 

Its performance may not be top-notch, but the 13.3-inch Sony Vaio VPCY21S1E is still a hugely likeable machine thanks to its impressive battery life, slick design and great keyboard and screen.

Attractive design ; Good battery life ; Excellent keyboard and screen ; Good range of ports

Poor 3D performance ; CPU isn't the fastest

The Sony Vaio VPCY21S1E is a great-looking laptop and its impressive screen and keyboard make it a pleasure to use. Its processor certainly isn't the fastest on the block, so speed junkies should probably look elsewhere, but we think most mainstream...
