Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-CA2SOE/R

60% Sony VAIO C VPCCA2SOE review
Source: Pocket Lint English
This is a fun, funky and functional family PC that's middle of the road in everything but looks. It's a little on the heavy side but still perfectly portable. The performance is perfectly acceptable for mainstream use, just don't try gaming, and the battery life will get you through a movie comfortably. You can't ignore the design statement that screams ‘I love glowing Perspex curves’, but that doesn't obscure the fact that the VAIO C (for colourful, perhaps) gives the average PC user exactly what they need.

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.
