Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-EH17FG/L

75% Sony VAIO E Series VPCEH17FG laptop
Source: Good Gear Guide English
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.

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.
