Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-EG33FX/B

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.

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.
