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.

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.

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