Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-EA46FM/V
Source: PC Mag
If you're e looking for a mainstream laptop that doesn't look like every other mainstreeam laptop, the Sony VAIO VPC-EA46FM/V is for you. Whether its bright violet design is a plus or a minus is strictly a matter of taste, but there's no denying its solid performance and robust feature set. A more powerful graphics solution would be a welcome upgrade, though. If a mainstream laptop with some graphics chops is what you're after, the Asus U41JF-A1 is a better choice.
