Sony Vaio F13M0E review

 

As a desktop replacement laptop, Sony's new Vaio F13M0E ticks most boxes: a fast Intel Core i7 740QM processor, a dedicated Nvidia graphics card and a Blu-ray drive. It also has a broad array of expansion ports, and is one of the few laptops to support...

A smart laptop with great connectivity, 2D and 3D performance, but is let down by its small, dull display

Sony VAIO F13M0E/B review

 

The Sony VAIO F13M0E/B's keyboard is nicely spaced and easy to use with a full numeric keypad and dedicated media transport controls.

The main disadvantage of the Sony VAIO F13M0E/B is the price. At just over the £1,000 mark the VAIO F13M0E/B is considerably more expensive than other models in the group, including the attention-grabbing 18.4in-panelled Acer and Medion machines.
