Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-CA15FG/R

75% Sony VAIO C (VPCCA15FG) Notebook
Source: Tech2.in.com English
At Rs. 55,990 for this model (VPCCA15FG), the VAIO C makes a good buy given the features and performance. Funky looks apart, it packs in some serious fire power under all the translucent, hippie lighting effects. Some of the highlights of this notebook include the auto switchable graphics, auto-backlighting of the keyboard, very comfortable and ergonomic keys coupled with good build quality. It can also handle DX10 games pretty well without compromising too much on quality. Apart from the average battery life and the weight, there’s not much to complain about really. Now, if Sony would drop the price a little, it would be a great buy.

AMD Radeon HD 6630M: Successor of the slow clocked (low power) versions of the Mobility Radeon HD 5650 with more cores, UVD3 processor and Eyefinity+.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
