Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-EB36FG

75% Sony VAIO E Series (VPCEB36FG) notebook
Source: Good Gear Guide English

Overall, the Sony VAIO E Series is a well-rounded notebook. We like its build quality and the way it feels, but we wish it had a better touchpad. It can be used for office work, multimedia tasks and a little bit of gaming. We wish it came with a slightly more powerful CPU and a Blu-ray drive to take advantage of the Full HD screen, but if you want those features you can always opt for the slightly more expensive VAIO E Series VPCEB37FG model.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650: Middle class DirectX 11 capable graphics card with a power consumption of about 15-20 Watt. Supports Eyevision (up to 6 monitors)

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
