Reviews for the Sony Vaio SV-F15A15CXS

60% Sony VAIO Fit 15 Touch review: Great display, but lackluster performance and battery life
Source: PC World English
The VAIO Fit 15 Touch provided decent, but not outstanding performance, achieving a Notebook Worldbench 8.1 score of 158. (We use an Asus VivoBook S550CA, powered by an Intel Core i5-3317u, as our 100-point baseline.) The Core i7-3537U-powered Toshiba Kirabook has produced the highest Notebook Worldbench 8.1 score to date: 284. But the KiraBook has a 256GB SSD and costs more than twice as much as the Fit 15, so that’s no big surprise.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

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

3337U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.7 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.
