Reviews for the Sony Vaio Fit multi-flip SV-F13N1L2E/S

78% Review Sony Vaio Fit 13A SV-F13N1L2E/S Convertible | Notebookcheck
A chameleon. The multi-flip presents itself as a transformation artist. At one moment, it sports a clamshell look; in the next, it is suddenly a tablet PC. What does Sony do better or worse than the numerous convertibles on the market?

Model:

Convertibles are a growing trend. Manufacturers offer more and more models and Sony added their latest attempt, the Sony Vaio Fit multi-flip SV-F13N1L2E/S. The stylish white case is made from a combination of plastics and aluminum. A size of 20 mm x 377 mm x 254 mm reads like a sleek and slim device, and the 1.3 kg weight should pose no obstacles to portability. Ports are somewhat limited compared to similar devices, with just two USB 3.0 ports and one HDMI port. An optional dongle for HDMI to VGA is available for a surcharge.

One potentially attractive feature is the included digitizer pen. A 36 Wh Lithium-Ion battery is integrated and careful use should get the user one workday of use. The keyboard is backlit with shallow Chiclet style keys and a touchpad. The 13.3 inch IPS screen has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which should provide a great viewing experience. This device is powered by the Haswell Intel Core i5-4200U that clocks in at 1.6 GHz and runs Windows 8. Decent performance should be possible and the Intel HD Graphics 4400 should handle most everyday tasks with ease, but demanding programs and games will not find a happy home on this machine. Overall, this machine might be beat by quite a few others for a similar price.­

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.307 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
