Reviews for the Sony Vaio Fit multi-flip SV-F13N1L2E/S

78% Review Sony Vaio Fit 13A SV-F13N1L2E/S Convertible | Notebookcheck
A chameleon. The multi-flip presents itself as a transformation artist. At one moment, it sports a clamshell look; in the next, it is suddenly a tablet PC. What does Sony do better or worse than the numerous convertibles on the market?

Comment

Model:

Convertibles are a growing trend. Manufacturers offer more and more models and Sony added their latest attempt, the Sony Vaio Fit multi-flip SV-F13N1L2E/S. The stylish white case is made from a combination of plastics and aluminum. A size of 20 mm x 377 mm x 254 mm reads like a sleek and slim device, and the 1.3 kg weight should pose no obstacles to portability. Ports are somewhat limited compared to similar devices, with just two USB 3.0 ports and one HDMI port. An optional dongle for HDMI to VGA is available for a surcharge.

One potentially attractive feature is the included digitizer pen. A 36 Wh Lithium-Ion battery is integrated and careful use should get the user one workday of use. The keyboard is backlit with shallow Chiclet style keys and a touchpad. The 13.3 inch IPS screen has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which should provide a great viewing experience. This device is powered by the Haswell Intel Core i5-4200U that clocks in at 1.6 GHz and runs Windows 8. Decent performance should be possible and the Intel HD Graphics 4400 should handle most everyday tasks with ease, but demanding programs and games will not find a happy home on this machine. Overall, this machine might be beat by quite a few others for a similar price.­

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

13.30":

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

Sony: Sony Corporation is one of the largest Japanese electronics companies. The company was founded in 1946 under a different name and initially produced rice stoves. The company launched the first transistor radio. In 1958, the company was renamed Sony. Sony is a combination of the Latin word sonus (sound) and the English word sonny (little boy). Today, its core business is consumer electronics. The company is engaged in the development, design, manufacture and sale of electronic equipment, instruments, devices, game consoles and software. Sony operates in the following segments: Gaming and Network Services, Music, Images, Home Entertainment and Sound, Imaging Products and Solutions, Mobile Communications, Semiconductors, Financial Services and Others.


73%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
