Sony Vaio VPC-YB3V1E review


A high resolution screen and fantastic keyboard, but performance and battery life are underwhelming

The screen itself has a 1,366x768 resolution, which is about as high as we’ve seen in a 12in laptop. Both images and text looked crisp, and we had no trouble working on two documents at once. Colours were accurate, although slightly muted, but viewing...

Sony Vaio VPC-L22Z1E review


All-in-one PC with a 24 inch touchscreen display and active 3D glasses. Sony's all-in-one PC might not have a very sleek...

Good quality 3D; neat extras such as a quick web boot and “edge access” touchscreen

Pricey; on-board speakers are below par

There’s a lot to like about the VPC-L22Z1E. It’s a good all-rounder with a Blu-ray drive and impressive 3D performance, plus it makes a decent stab at gaming. The Vaio is also a smart looking, slim-line unit with some neat added features, such as the...

Sony VAIO VPC-EB1S0E review


A powerful performance from the Core i3 chip, but this high-end VAIO fails to make the best use of it.

This is just the beginning, and the future for Core i3 is bright. When Core i3 systems arrive in force, you'll be spoiled for choice when it comes to budget, high-performance laptops.

Expert review by : Brian Westover (



The Sony VAIO VPC-SE23FX/S is a competent desktop replacement laptop with solid battery life and a healthy feature set.

Slim build. Light weight. Has 1080p display. Long battery life, doubled by an extended battery slice. Complimentary silicone keyboard skin is a nice touch.

Performance lags behind peers. Manual graphics switching (with a physical switch) is a drag. No Blu-ray drive.

The Sony VAIO VPC-YB35KX is a competent netbook, with an AMD APU that offers a decent combination of processing and graphics, and a healthy feature set that includes stereo Bluetooth, HDMI, and two card reader slots. Its battery life is a bit of a...

Sony Vaio VPC-YB35KX/B review


The Netbook is dead; long live the new Netbooks. Atom-toting 10-inch laptops might be a thing of the past, but the 2011 trend of sticking low-power processors in small-screened computers is alive and well. However, this time, the result is a far better...

The Sony Vaio YB35KX/B has a lot of hard-drive space, solid performance from an AMD E-450 processor, and long battery life; this 11-incher has the portability of a Netbook, and it's reasonably affordable.

The cramped keyboard and touch pad make this Vaio feel more like a Netbook from 2010 than an ultrabook from 2011, and it lacks USB 3.0.

The more affordable and better-performing Sony Vaio YB35KX/B is a modest improvement on the last YB model we reviewed, adding up to a full-featured but cramped 11-inch laptop that'll cost a lot less than an ultrabook.

Sony VAIO W111XX review


Sony's first foray in to the world of Atom-powered laptops was the Vaio P-series Lifestyle PC , which sported a unique miniaturized design (about the same footprint as a standard business envelope), but was hampered by input issues (no touch pad), and...

High-res display; cool color combos; typical high-quality Sony construction and design.

Poor battery life; better display adds a $100 premium; smallish keyboard; loud fan.

Attempting to create a premium-priced version of a Netbook, Sony has added an HD display to the Vaio W. It's an attractive step-up package, but the internal components are the same as are in cheaper models.

Review Sony Vaio VPC-SA3X9E/XI Notebook


A lean and mean performer. The latest Intel Core i7, a middle-class AMD graphics card and an SSD in an top quality upper-class subnotebook. Can the Sony VAIO attract the target group?Does the Sony Vaio appeal to you? ...

Flat shape ; Matt materials ; USB 3.0 ; Blu ray burner ; Fast CPU + GPU ; Large touchpad ; Fast SSD

Dark display ; High temperature emissions ; Very loud at load ; Modest battery life

Such high performance packed into a small case and combined with an optical drive

Review Sony Vaio VPC-SE2M9E/B Notebook


Black Beauty. Sony's Vaio S range currently encompasses over 24 m

First-rate workmanship; Good equipment; Very good screen

Partly loud fan; Power-consuming, dedicated graphics

There is plenty of competition in this performance and size category. We would mention the Sony's sister model Vaio VPC-SE1Z9E/B, HP's Envy 15-3040nr and Asus' U44SG as its current contenders.
