Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-EJ16FX/B

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.

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.

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.
