Reviews for the Sony Vaio SV-E1712ACXB
Source: Comp Reviews
Sony's SVE1712ACXB certainly offers a few differences in the under $1000 priced 17-inch laptops thanks to its 1080p capable display and good performance. The build quality and keyboard are also some of the better in this price segment. There are lots of tradeoffs for this display though including short battery life, fewer USB ports and a smaller trackpad that has some big accuracy problems.

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.
3632QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. The speciality of the i7-3632QM 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.
