Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-SC1AFM/S

70% Sony VAIO VPC-SC1AFM
Source: PC Mag English
The Sony VAIO VPC-SC1AFM is what you would call a fully-loaded ultraportable. Even though its price is considered steep, features like a Blu-ray drive, backlit keyboard, WiDi 2.0, and dual graphics system warrant the premium. What it doesn't warrant, however, is the fan noises and heat that can very well mess with your Zen during moderately intensive tasks like video and photo editing. It might be a small price to pay for some users, but I would rather spend my money on the Acer Aspire AS3830TG-6431 or Toshiba Portege R835-P50X.

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.


1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
