Blu-Ray player. Sony introduces another all-round notebook from the EH series with the Vaio EH1Z1E/B. The highlight is the Blu-Ray player, but the 6 GB of RAM and the 640 GB hard disk are also impressive. Can the notebook convince with only that?

The Sony VAIO VPC-EH14FM/B provides a lot of wireless features, including WiDi 2.0, WiMAX, and Wi-Fi, and performance numbers that are on par with the HP dv6-6013cl. But it can't compete with the Lenovo IdeaPad V570-1066A9U, our Editors' Choice for budget laptops. The Lenovo V570-1066A9U give you the same features (plus an eSATA port for fast external hard drives) with a better CPU for $30 less. However, if you don't need as much oomph out of your laptop the VPC-EH14FM/B will be a good companion for road warriors who don't want to sacrifice their screen size for the sake of ultra-portability.

Beautiful weakling. Sony shows us that notebooks can be real lookers, with the new 15-inch Vaio VPC-EH1M1E and its attractive rippled surface design. But is it all style and no substance? We take a closer look at this head-turner in our review.

But it's not all about USB 3.0 and many of you probably won't care about that feature. The E Series is definitely a nice notebook and what you pay for is a very good user experience. The screen is above-average, the keyboard is very comfortable and the touchpad isn't bad either. Its battery could use a little more juice.

70% Sony VAIO VPC-EH25FM
Source: PC Mag English
From battery life to performance, there’s nothing that the Editors’ Choice Asus UE56E-BBL6 doesn’t handle better than the Sony VAIO VPC-EH25FM—but it costs nearly $150 more. The Samsung NP300E5A-A01UB just surpasses the Sony on the features and performance fronts, and costs the same, though the VPC-EH25FM has a more eye-catching look. Which of the two is better for you depends on where your priorities lie, but regardless, the VPC-EH25FM is a solid middle-of-the-road choice.

Source: Comp Reviews English
Sony's E series laptop remains physically unchanged in its latest revision. While the system gets a boost in the performance thanks to the new Core i3 processor and storage thanks to the larger 640GB hard drive, it falls to pull far enough away from just being an average budget laptop. In particular, at nearly six pounds, it is one of the heaviest of the 15-inch laptops available now.

Still, before we gripe too much about its battery life or that missing USB 3.0 port, it's worth remembering that the VPC-EH35FM/B is priced $100 or more below most of its competitors. At $629.99, it's a worthy alternative to our Editors' Choice Asus U56E-BBL6 and other top value contenders.

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).

2450M: 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 2.5 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.8-3.1 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1300 MHz Turbo).

Intel Core i3:

2310M:

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 2.1 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card (650/1100MHz).

2330M:

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 2.2 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card (650/1100MHz).

Intel Pentium:

B960:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. Due to the Pentium brand, many features of the Sandy Bridge core are deactivated.


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


2.4 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.

2.8 kg:

This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


75.2%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
