Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-EB1S0E

80% Sony VAIO E review: Perfect all rounder?
Source: Electricpig English
Overall, we really like the Sony VAIO E, not least because of its 14-inch form factor. With most manufacturers putting effort into producing slightly too small 13.3-inch, or hefty 15.6-inch models, the Sony VAIO E is a refreshing change, and although it’s still portable enough to take on the commute, it’s also perfectly suited to replacing your desktop PC.

Sony has struck gold with this excellent all-round laptop. The Sony Vaio VPC-EB1SOE/WI is a new laptop targeted at the average consumer. Boasting an all new chassis design, the laptop. The Sony VAIO VPCEB1SOE/WI is a very impressive machine that provides great performance, power and usability. It's a great all-rounder with versatile performance and would make the perfect machine for the whole family.

67% Sony VAIO VPC-EB1S0E
Source: PC Pro English
As the first of Sony's new E Series laptops to reach PC Pro, the VAIO VPC-EB1S0E didn't have to do much to grab our attention. But as well as a box-fresh design and new graphics chipset from ATI, there's one component that makes this laptop truly exciting: Intel's Core i3 mobile processor. A powerful performance from the Core i3 chip, but this high-end VAIO fails to make the best use of it.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics 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.
