Review Sony Vaio Fit SV-F1521V6EB Notebook

 

Average. The Vaio comes with all components that a versatile laptop should have in form of a Core i7 processor, GeForce GPU, Blu-Ray burner, and a 1 TB hard drive. Our test report reveals whether Sony has placed a recommendable 15.5 inch all-rounder in...

Good application performance; Decent gaming power; High storage capacity; High-contrast screen; Blu-Ray burner; Keyboard backlight

Screen's bluish cast; Poor battery runtimes; No VGA out; High price

Sony demands a lot of money for an average laptop.
