Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-F11M1E
Source: Digital Versus
Mainly designed for video and photo work, the Sony Vaio VPCF11 is equipped with a wide Full HD VAIO screen with Blu-Ray for "optimal High Definition entertainment", as well as "cinema style surround sound". Designed for video work and multimedia leisure time, the Sony Vaio VPCF11M1E offers good overall performance. Its graphics card allows you to do some gaming with recent 3D titles and it's a nice machine to use. Just a shame that its screen has such a low contrast ratio as the Full HD res is a real plus.

Sony's VAIO F-Series is a relatively new release and comprises midrange multimedia machines. The Sony VAIO VPC-F11M1E/H is a great machine that offers powerful performance at a price that won't break the bank. Its 3D performance may not be as impressive as the Acer here, but it's still good enough to carry out resource intensive multimedia tasks.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M: The Nvidia GeForce GT 330M is the successor of the GT 230M and technically just a slightly higher clocked GT 240M (but it should still maintain the power envelope of the GT 230M as the naming suggests).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
