Reviews for the Sony Vaio SV-F1521C2E

83% Sony VAIO Fit 15E review
Source: PC Pro English
Sony has delivered a solid all-round budget laptop, and the ability to tailor the specification of the VAIO Fit 15E to any budget is welcome. The build quality could be improved, but with good performance, plenty of features and a usable touchscreen for only £549, this laptop is worth considering.

40% Sony Vaio Fit 15E

Even with an adequate processor and lots of connectivity, the Sony Vaio Fit 15E just adds fail on top of fail—starting with the screen, which has low brightness, low contrast and unfaithful colours. Then there's the short battery life and hefty body... For this type of product in this price range, we prefer the HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15.

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.

2.5 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.
