Sony VAIO VGN-NR498E review: Sony VAIO VGN-NR498E

 

Sony VAIO VGN-NR498E

Competitive performance; lengthy battery life; great keyboard and touchpad.

Loud, clacky mouse buttons; no media control keys; no Webcam; AV Mode button is useless.

It lacks some standard mainstream laptop features, including an integrated Webcam and multimedia control buttons, but the Sony Vaio VGN-NR498 holds some appeal thanks to its decent performance, good battery life, and excellent keyboard. Still, there's...

VAIO VGN-FZ180E / B Notebook

 

Midsize notebook with a nice screen turned in great performance and long battery life.

Includes a built-in Webcam, Huge hard drive

Keyboard feels uncomfortable

If you want a top-notch multimedia laptop, look to a Dell Inspiron or a Toshiba Satellite. For a nice work laptop with a great 15.4-inch screen, though, this VAIO fills the bill

User Review Sony Vaio VGN-FZ11M

 

With the official arrival of the Sony Vaio notebooks to Poland, o ...

Good workmanship; Interesting design; Good display; HD compatible; Quiet operation

The touch pad's buttons; Gamers keep away (GeForce 8400GT with only 64MB VRAM on board!); The area left of the touch pad gets considerably warmer; Average battery run time; Lots of not required software

Special thanks goes to kaaz

Sony VAIO FZ Review

 

The overall first impression that one has when looking at the FZ series is that this notebook was designed to look clean and simple. From the matte black and silver plastics to the flat keyboard keys the FZ is a design that lacks the flashiness of the...

Simple design with clean looks ; Fast Core 2 Duo processors and up to 4GB of RAM provide plenty of system performance ; Screen has excellent horizontal viewing angles ; Solid build quality and sturdiness ; Stays cool and makes little noise ; Good...

Useless AV button ; Too much bloatware installed ; Poor battery life ; Only three USB ports

While none of these applications are horrible and some are even helpful, many of these applications are hogging system resources when you startup the FZ for the first time and experienced users will likely want to uninstall most of this bloatware

Sony VAIO VGN-FZ Review and Prices

 

Sony's VAIO systems are laptops with sleek design and, often times, a much larger price tag than their more traditional counterparts. The VGN-FZ series of laptop computers does offer attractive design, but the prices are quite reasonable this time.
