Reviews for the Sony Vaio SV-T1511M1E/S

80% Review Sony Vaio SV-T1511M1E/S Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Against the flow. Sony equips its first 15-inch ultrabook with a Full HD resolution and touchscreen right away. Less than 900 Euros (~$1171) also appears very low compared with The Spectre XT Touchsmart 15 and ZenBook UX51VZ. Where's the catch?

The design of the Sony VAIO T Series 15 is definitely one of the major selling points for this laptop. It has a brushed aluminum exterior with stylish chrome accents. The edges have a unique cut to them that completes the design. Apple typically is known for its products to have an attractiveness, but this Sony VAIO does just the same in our opinion.

Just like all Sony laptops, the Sony Vaio SV-T1511M1E/S is a stylish 15-inch ultrabook that will give a solid impression in terms of ergonomics, build quality and feel. The case is made from magnesium alloy which gives a premium look and solid feel. In addition, the brushed aluminum finish leaves a high quality impression. Impressively, this ultrabook only weighs 2.22kg. So, it offers great portability without compromising screen size. The 15-inch full-HD display has a decent resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and is equipped with LED backlighting. In addition, the screen is also a touchscreen. Considering that Windows 8 was built with touch screen interface in mind, the Windows 8 experience on this laptop should be amazing and enjoyable.

This ultrabook is not only thin, but also features excellent input devices including a backlit keyboard and an excellent touchpad. Despite of its lightweight and thin design, this laptop offers a surprisingly long battery life. In fact, it is on par with thicker ultrabooks. Powered by an Intel Core i5 processor, this ultrabook is a reliable machine with a high performance level to run everyday tasks such as browsing, multimedia and office tasks. The only downside is that Sony did not install a dedicated graphic card. Hence, it is clear that this ultrabook cannot run the latest games with the highest detail settings. However, its performance is still sufficient for entertainment and everyday tasks. Nevertheless, the Sony Vaio SVT1511M1E/S still lures with really great features at an attractive price.
