Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-F237FX/B

80% Sony VAIO VPC-F237FX/B
Source: PC Mag English
The HP Pavilion dv7-6163cl retains our Editors' Choice because it's such an impressive value at under $1,000—though, to be sure, it lacks two key features, a Blu-ray drive and a true 1080p display, that make the Sony VAIO VPC-F237FX/B a temptation even at $450 more. Not only will Blu-ray movie watchers gravitate toward the VPC-F237FX/B; so will shoppers seeking much of the elegance of an Apple MacBook Pro in a Windows 7 laptop, albeit a plastic- instead of aluminum-cased one.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:

Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


2670QM: Fast Quad-core processor clocked at 2.2-3.1 GHz based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
