Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-NR310E

60% Sony VAIO VGN-NR310E
Source: Laptop Mag English
For $599, the VGN-NR310E is an attractive but not very powerful notebook. What you get is a machine for surfing the Web, storing and viewing pictures, and working on office tasks. It can handle DVDs and streaming online video, but not as well as other budget systems we’ve seen. If you’re willing to drop a little more dough, we suggest the beautiful $799 Gateway T-6828, which offers 3GB of RAM, longer battery life, and better performance.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

15.4": 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. 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.

2.9 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
