Reviews for the Sony Vaio SV-E11113FXW

40% Sony VAIO SVE11113FXW 11.6-inch
Source: Comp Reviews English
The Sony VAIO SVE11113FXW is certainly very affordable for a compact 11-inch laptop system but it can't shake its netbook heritage when it comes to performance. Compound this with below average battery life for a laptop of this class and it just becomes a hard to recommend system with its limited performance that coul be replaced by a tablet or spending a bit more for a more flexible laptop.

70% Sony Vaio E Series SVE11113FXW review

Once a popular choice for on-the-go laptop shoppers, the 11-inch laptop has fallen on hard times of late (aside from the $999 11-inch MacBook Air). With only a handful of 11-inch laptops still available, serious travelers are flocking to ultrathin 13-inch models instead. But the low price and good battery life of the Sony Vaio E keep it from being counted out.

Series:

Sony’s SV-E series was introduced in Q3 2012 as a replacement for the VPC-E budget series. It consists of notebooks from 11.6 to 17.3 inch with a price range from 800 Euro to 1000 Euro depending on the configuration. The 800 euro entry level model houses a Sandy bridge processor and an on-board graphic Intel HD3000. The more expensive 1000 euro model uses a Sandy Bridge quad-core processor and mid-range AMD Radeon graphics.

Since the E series is a series of budget notebooks aiming at average consumers, it does not has the beautiful design or state-of-the-art hardware of Sony’s high end models. But the E-series still has some ace up its sleeves: Its price is comparable to other manufacturer’s mid-range laptop, while having a much better matte display and a somewhat better backlit keyboard, not to mention a timeless design which is similar to other Sony premium notebooks.

Unfortunately, being a budget series, the E-series suffers from some flaws to cut cost, including a bad cooling system, which makes the notebook very hot during heavily gaming, no graphics switchm, which makes the battery run time below average. Despite these flaws, the Sony SV-E series is still a very attractive choice for home office users who are looking for high performance from a premium laptop manufacturer at a fair price.
