Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-CA190X

60% Sony VAIO CA Series review
Source: Techradar English
With a weight of 2.3kg, the VAIO CA can definitely be carried around if needed. Be warned that the 39mm chassis is fairly bulky, however, so you'll need to clear some space in your bag first.

Sony VAIO C Series Hands-on
Source: Trusted Reviews English
We didn't get any indications of battery life or price, but availability is expected from the 21st of March. To be honest we're cautiously impressed, though it will all depend on how affordable Sony makes its colourful laptops. But considering the eminently reasonable pricing on its new S Series, we're hopeful these may come in at below £600, which – based on what we've seen so far - would make them great mainstream options.

Sony VAIO C Series quick video
Source: T3 English
Sony's C Series laptop isn't one for the faint-hearted. The 14.4-inch screen toting notebook comes in an array of colours, from nuclear-green to sunshine orange and sports a HD video camera and HDMI out. We doned our sunglasses for this first look video.

AMD Radeon HD 6470M: Entry to middle class graphics card based on the Seymore XT codename featuring the UVD3 video processor.

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.


2.4 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.
