Reviews for the Sony Vaio SV-S151190X

60% Sony VAIO S Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Sony VAIO S is a more than recommendable multimedia notebook. My complaints are relatively minor: an inaccurate clickpad and display lid that's too flexible. There's little not to like otherwise. The VAIO S is extraordinarily thin and light for a 15.5-inch notebook at just 0.95 inches and 4.4 pounds, respectively. The 1080p IPS display is gorgeous; it's hard to find better on a notebook this size, especially for the price. Other things we like about the VAIO S include its backlit keyboard with full-size numeric keypad, magnesium alloy chassis, quiet fan and five hours of battery life. All of this in a package for $899.99? That's a deal.

Sony VAIO S 15 (2012)

Relatively thin and light, Sony’s premium VAIO S 15in ‘ultraportable’ makes for a great package with a 1080p/Full HD IPS screen, powerful dedicated graphics, flexible specifications, good connectivity, optional slot-loading Blu-ray drive and more.

Series:

The Sony business series laptops have always been ultrabooks even before the ultrabook concept was introduced by Intel in 2011. The new Sony Vaio SV-S series isn’t an exception. It shouts premium in every way imaginable.  The Vaio S Series keeps the familiar brushed metallic body with sharp edges from the previous models and is much lighter than what it used to be. Keep in mind though. It is still thicker and heavier than the average ultrabook out there but can be easily carried around.

There is a reason for the extra waist. The Vaio S Series comes with a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GTM graphics card. Its other specs can also be cranked up to the limits of a performance laptop. Being a business class laptop, the S Series is equipped with a finger print scanner. The backlit keyboard and touchpad that are close to perfection. There is also a Blu-ray drive on the right side to set it further apart from the usual ultrabook.

Although the matte screen offers very good visibility outdoors, the lack of a full-HD resolution is a huge let down as it is what you would expect to see when you are going to pay a huge price for a laptop. Apart from that, the on-board storage simply isn’t enough and it has a poor speaker quality. Its contenders in the Ultrabook category have much more to offer in terms of multimedia and are also cheaper.
