Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-EG16FM/W

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.

14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.3 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
