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.

AMD Radeon HD 7670M: Renamed Radeon HD 6650M and therefore still produced in 40nm.

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

3110M: Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, 2.4 GHz core clock (no turbo), includes HD 4000 GPU» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
