60% Sony VAIO VPCEJ16FX/B 17.3-inch Desktop Replacement Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
At $800, Sony's VAIO VPCEJ16FX/B is relatively affordable for a media focused 17-inch laptop that comes with a Blu-ray compatible drive. The problem is that beyond the media features, the laptop is a bit anemic in performance. It uses a slower Core i3 processor compared to many that use Core i5's at this price point.

65% Sony VAIO E Series (VPCEJ15FG) notebook
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The Sony VAIO E Series (VPCEJ15FG) is a 17.3in general-purpose notebook with mid-range specifications. Sony's VAIO E Series notebooks are intended for general purpose use, and the VPCEJ15FG fulfils that requirement happily. If you're trying to complete too many tasks at once the E Series does tend to pause for a few seconds, but we only encountered this a few times in our testing.

This is about the only change made the the laptop and that is a real shame. While it is certainly affordable for a Sony laptop with a $800 price tag, there are just too many alternatives at this price point for other 17-inch laptops that just have a better mix of features for a variety of different users.

Sony Vaio EJ3D – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
Sony rarely compromises on build quality or the chic aesthetics of its portfolio, one reason the snappily-named Sony VPC-EJ3D1E lands at 800 euros ($1015), while notebooks featuring similar specs can be had cheaper elsewhere. The Sony Vaio EJ3D slightly trails the pack in performance and display quality and the lack of USB-3 means a few extra seconds shifting files to and from USB sticks, but keyboard and mouse are both excellent and its appearance means the EJ3D will appeal to many.

Sony reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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).

NVIDIA GeForce 410M: Entry level graphics card based on the GF119 chip but compared to the 520M with lower clock rates.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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).

2350M:

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 and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card.

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).

17.3: Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.1 kg:

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

3.1 kg:


65%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
