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 7650M: Based on the same chip as the Radeon HD 6650M but with slower core clock. 480 Shader and 128 bit DDR3 interface. 

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


3612QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.1 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. The speciality of the i7-3612QM is the low TDP of 35 Watt compared to 45 Watt of the other Ivy Bridge quad core CPUs (e.g. 3610QM).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
