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": 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.


2.3 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.
