60% Sony VAIO Fit E 15 Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
Sony's Windows 8 software preload emphasizes creativity, with the video- and music-managing bundle the company calls Sony Imagination Studio—Movie Studio Platinum, DVD Architect Studio, Acid Music Studio, and SoundForge Audio Studio. There's also a skimpy 30-day trial of Kaspersky Internet Security.

Sony VAIO Fit 15 review
Source: Engadget English
Should you buy the VAIO Fit 15? It's tough to say conclusively, since we still don't know what other companies like HP and Toshiba are going to sell this summer. We do know this: the Fit 15 kicks off back-to-school season on a strong note. We applaud Sony for standardizing on certain specs, like backlit keyboards and higher-res screens.

70% Sony Vaio Fit E 15 Review
Source: Digital Trends English
The Sony Vaio Fit E is a solid all-purpose mainstream laptop that’s attractive and not too heavy with a good keyboard and plenty of ports. However, at the $899 asking price for this configuration, we’d like to see better performance. The elements that raised the price of our review unit – full HD, touchscreen, max RAM – aren’t necessary, and it’s worth leaving them off the table to balance price and value.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.

2.7 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
