80% Sony VAIO VPC-EG16FM
Source: PC Mag English
The Sony VAIO VPC-EG16FM is a mainstream laptop that targets movie enthusiasts, thanks to the Blu-ray drive, excellent horsepower, and a few technologies that can get those flicks onto the big screen. Other than its need to trim some bulk off its shell, it's a well-designed laptop and should appeal to those who value good looking laptops. Now, a Blu-ray drive isn't for everyone, and it doesn't come cheap. If that not a consideration for you, and you're looking for a stellar, all-around mainstream laptop, look no further than the Editors' Choice Asus U46E-BAL5.

81% Sony Vaio VPC-EG27FM/W Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
The Style in SonyStyle. Sony refreshes its budget 14-inch Vaio E lineup for the New Year with WiDi, Blu-Ray and standard voltage Sandy Bridge Core i5 CPUs. But, has the Japanese giant cut any corners to reach that sub $500 starting price? Find out in this review what the new Vaio E does right – and ultimately what still needs to be done.
70% Sony VAIO VPC-EG27FM/W
Source: PC Mag English
Pleasing aesthetics, outstanding battery life, and a Blu-ray drive are all good reasons to consider the Sony VAIO VPC-EG27FM/W for your next 14-inch laptop. And, don't forget its generous wireless feature set and solid Core i5 performance. The lack of the latest high speed transfer technologies leaves a gaping hole in an otherwise solid offering by Sony. That said, the Dell Inspiron 14z, with its lighter, slimmer chassis, robust feature set, and backlit keyboard, remains our Editors' Choice for 14-inch mainstream laptops.

80% Sony VAIO VPCEG33FX/B 14-inch Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Sony has made a major improvement with the their VAIO E series laptops by upgrading the battery packs to a larger capacity. While this makes the VAIO VPCEG33FX a bit heavier than most other 14-inch laptops, it provides it with one of the longest running times in its price range even if they are shorter than Sony claims and it certainly is much more compact that the majority of laptops which feature 15-inch screens.

Sony reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 410M: Entry level graphics card based on the GF119 chip but compared to the 520M with lower clock rates.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

2430M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.4 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.7-3 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

Intel Core i3:

2350M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card.


14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


2.2 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.306 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.


77.75%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
