Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPCS111FM/S

70% Sony Vaio VPCS111FM/S
Source: CNet English
The Sony Vaio VPCS111FM/S is an exclusive Best Buy Blue Label laptop, like the Toshiba E205-S1904 and Dell Studio s15z-2249CPN. With an Intel Core i5 processor and Wireless Display technology packed into a 13.3-inch laptop, the Vaio VPCS111FM/S is a great all-around, small notebook that costs a little more than we'd like to pay.

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.


2 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.
