Reviews for the Sony VAIO VPCEB1LFX/BI
Source: Comp Reviews
Sony's VAIO E series continues the companies trend towards affordable but feature rich laptops. In the case of the VPC-EB1LFX/BI, it comes with a solid Core i5 dual core processor and a capable ATI Radeon HD 5650 graphics processor. It also uses Sony's exceptionally designed isolated keyboards. The downsides are a battery life that is below average even for such a small battery pack and a display below Sony's usual quality.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650: Middle class DirectX 11 capable graphics card with a power consumption of about 15-20 Watt. Supports Eyevision (up to 6 monitors)
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
