Mobility? Limited. Sony ranks the Vaio VPC-YB3V1E/S as a particularly slim notebook, but also explicitly avoids labeling it as a "netbook". This raises a rather important question: is this a premium netbook or truly an entry-level notebook? Our following review and tests will answer this question and more.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
