Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPCEE2E1E/WI

74% Sony Vaio E series (VPC-EE2E1E/WI) review
Source: CNet English

The Sony Vaio E-series VPC-EE2E1E/WI is one of the few laptops around that uses AMD's Vision 2010 platform. Basically this means that, instead of being based on Intel technology, it runs on an AMD Athlon processor and uses ATI Radeon graphics. For a budget laptop, the 15.5-inch Sony Vaio E-series VPC-EE2E1E/WI looks fantastic, but, sadly, its performance doesn't quite match its impressive design.

Sony’s E Series is just as good as ever, but AMD’s Vision spectacularly fails to excite

Comment

ATI Radeon HD 4250: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) for AMD processors with Avivo HD support and technically a higher clocked HD 4200.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

P320: Entry level dual core processor for 13"+ laptops featuring a DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

2.7 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
