Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPCY11M1E/S

65% Sony Vaio Y Series Review
Source: Digital Trends English
Sony has put an admirably classy finish on the standard thin-and-light formula with the Vaio Y, but if its complexion doesn’t make you swoon, it doesn’t offer too many other incentives to reach for the Vaio brand name. Asus’ UL30a offers a lower price, thinner form factor and better battery life, while Lenovo’s (Intel-powered) ThinkPad Edge is lighter, offers superior performance, and also runs longer.

Sony VAIO Y Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Sony VAIO Y performed very well in our tests with the older Pentium-based model, with the latest generation including Intel Core i3 and i5 ULV processors. The VAIO Y also offers optional ATI Radeon 4550 dedicated graphics for people interested in mild gaming on the go. Compared to its bigger brother, the VAIO Z, the Y is toned-down without as many features or artistic design elements, but it still offers great build quality and very good looks. Battery life is good with the 6-cell battery; it got almost 6 hours in our lab, with an estimated 9 hours with an optional extended battery. If you're in the market for a stylish CULV-powered notebook priced under $800, the VAIO Y is a great choice and offers plenty of options to satisfy most buyers.

70% Sony VAIO VPC-Y11M1E notebook
Source: Pocket Lint English
Styled to turn heads, the Y series is a decent laptop with good battery life and great ergonomics. The combination of light weight, good-sized screen and especially a comfortable keyboard all work well. It's powerful enough to handle itself. There's nothing wrong with it exactly, apart from the lack of a DVD drive, say, but nothing to blow your socks off.

The 13.3-inch Sony Vaio Y-series VPCY11M1E/S is the thinner, lighter brother of the Vaio S-series laptops. The Sony Vaio VPCY11M1E/S isn't thin, light or powerful enough to win our hearts, but it is comfortable to use, and its funky bundled software allows you to share media between the laptop and other devices, such as a PlayStation 3 or television.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

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

Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.


SU4100: Entry-level dual core processor for slim and light subnotebooks. Due to the Pentium name, the CPU may have less power saving features than Core 2 Duo processors.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
