Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-FS485B

80% acknowledgement is what the best deserve!

Das leichte, leise, gut verarbeitete und preiswerte Notebook kann Anwendern ohne grössere Leistungsanforderungen fast uneingeschränkt empfohlen werden. Besonders die guten Eingabegeräte stechen hervor. Negativ fällt nur die etwas eingeschränkte Schnittstellenausstattung (nur 2 USB Schnittstellen und kein S-Video Ausgang) und das spiegeln des Displays auf. Wer also auf einen Core Duo verzichten kann und hauptsächlich anspruchslose Anwendungen, wie Office oder Internet Surfen, betreiben möchte, sollte das Sony Vaio VGN FS485B in die Nähere Wahl ziehen.
