Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-CB2S1E/B

81% Review Sony Vaio VPC-CB2S1E/B Notebook | Notebookcheck
Brilliant Entertainer. Sony has introduced a new member of the Vaio C series. As well as a Full HD display and Blu-ray drive, it has an Intel processor from the latest Sandy Bridge range and an AMD graphics card. Can the notebook shine when it comes to performance, or is it only the case that is dazzling?
