Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-SB16FG/L

60% Sony Vaio VPCSB16FG/L Notebook Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Sony Vaio VPCSB16FG/L is priced at Rs. 54,990 and comes pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Premium. We would've preferred an all-black design, but with the smaller screen size this laptop is definitely more portable than the 15.6-inchers. Vaio notebooks have always been priced higher than the other notebooks in the same range, and if you’re a Vaio fan wanting a portable laptop, this one’s a good buy. For others, we'd suggest the Acer TimelineX 5830TG as a cheaper alternative with similar specs.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.7 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
