Nice design ; Lots of connectivity ; Seriously lightweight

Way overpriced ; Poor battery life ; Touchpad too small

Vaio SX14 (i5-8265U, FHD) Laptop Review

 

Notebookcheck reviews the Vaio SX14, the first Vaio laptop available in Europe since Sony abandoned the PC business in 2014. Can the modern heir of the Sony Vaio brand convince use to give it a recommendation?

lightweight & stable chassis;comfortable keyboard;screen with good color gamut coverage;ample port selection (VGA, RJ45, SD card-reader);LTE standard in every model in Germany;good CPU performance;chassis does not get warm under load

bad battery life;annoying fan control;Thunderbolt 3 is missing;touchpad is too small;bad speakers;no ISO keyboard;high pricing

Vaio SX14 review: Under new management, Vaio laptops live again Review | ZDNet

 

The Vaio SX14 offers a slim, lightweight design and strong performance, along with a wide range of connectivity features. Battery life leaves room for improvement though.

Attractive, lightweight design ; Strong performance ; Good connectivity, including mobile broadband

Expensive, especially in the UK ; Poor expansion and repair options ; Moderate FHD screen resolution ; Battery life could be better
