Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-EB47GM/BJ

70% Sony VAIO VPC-EB47GM/BJ
Source: PC Mag English
Considering its parts, the Sony VAIO VPC-EB47GM/BJ is a good-performing laptop, and its included WiDi and WiMAX features help it stand out from the crowd. But its small battery is a disappointment and the lack of a lid latch is confusing. The Editors' Choice HP Pavilion dv6-6013cl costs less, has similar performance, and offers better mousing and listening experiences, but you will be sacrificing the Sony's WiDi and WiMax capabilities. And for those that need or want these connectivity options, the Toshiba Portégé R705-P35 can provide them if you're willing to lay down $100 more. But if you want to go "all out" for your new laptop, you can't beat the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Thunderbolt) ($2,199 direct, 4 stars)—it's the fastest desktop replacement around.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
