Reviews for the Sony Vaio VJ-S13-1X0111B

70% VAIO S Review: A Classic Business Laptop
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Fortunately, that’s not a deal breaker. Nor is the small touchpad or lack of USB Type-C. But before plunking down the dollars, potential VAIO S buyers should consider their needs. A cheaper Aspire will serve just fine as a primary device used for occasional travel or just between rooms. The VAIO S laptop is a better fit for an office environment where it will be lugged from home to work, and possibly handed down to multiple users/employees over the years.

Model: The Sony Vaio VJ-S13-1X0111B is a new entry level laptop for casual usage. It features the Intel Core i7-6500U processor with a base clock of 2.5 GHz (Turbo Boost up to 3.10 GHz) and 4 MB cache, an Intel HD Graphics 520, 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3L RAM and a 256 GB PCIe SSD. The laptop measures at 12.68 x 0.52-0.71 x 8.53 inch (32.21 x 1,32-1.8 x 21.67 cm) and weighs at 2.34 lbs (1.06 kg). The Windows 10 Home 64 bit system features a 13.3” Full HD display (1920 x 1080 pixels).

For multimedia features, it comes with a backlit keyboard, an Intel HD Audio, an integrated monaural microphone and a 1 MP HD webcam with CMOS Sensor. The battery of the laptop is a lithium polymer battery, which is capable of providing up to 9 hours of battery life. Wireless Networking is possible via WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.1. For input/output ports, it has a SuperSpeed ​​USB (3.0) port with charging function, two SuperSpeed ​​USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI port, a VGA port and a headphones + microphone combo jack.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.1 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
