Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-YA15FGB

80% Sony VAIO Y Series (VPCYA15FGB) notebook
Source: Good Gear Guide English

It's small, it's light, it looks good and it performs reasonably well. Overall, the Sony VAIO Y Series is a great ultraportable notebook, and even though it has a few design quirks there is plenty to like about it. It has a competitive price tag of $1099, which we think is great for a notebook of this size and quality.
