Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-EB12FX/T

100% Sony Vaio E review
Source: Stuff TV English
'Value for money’ isn't a phrase you’d normally associate with Sony's Vaio laptops, but that could be about to change judging by its new E Series. Faced with stiff competition from the prudent but powerful likes of Asus' UL series and the Acer Timeline class, the replacement for the outgoing Vaio NW isn't just a big improvement on the looks and spec sheet of its predecessor – the base model retails for just a few quid over £500. In other words, the Vaio E is surprisingly cheap. Worth it for the HD screen alone, but the rest of the laptop defies the price point, too.

70% Sony VAIO EB12FX/T

The Sony VAIO EB12FX/T is an affordable all-purpose notebook that impresses with its style, features, and affordable price--but it is also marred by mediocre performance. It looks great and has most of the features you'd expect in a notebook costing around $750. The earthy brown finish, slim design, and clean layout certainly make it more attractive than most sub-$1000 notebooks, but it if you need a laptop for heavy-duty tasks, playing games, or long battery life, you'll have to look elsewhere.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
