Reviews for the Sony Vaio S-VJS131X0111B

80% Vaio S
Source: PC Mag English
An attractive ultraportable laptop that's ready to serve you for the next few years as a personal or small business computer, the VAIO S has the speed to keep up with a multipage Excel spreadsheet, and its light weight means it's no trouble to carry between your clients' offices and then back home. The Dell XPS 13 Touch remains our Editors' Choice because of its longer battery life, better ergonomics from a more comfortable keyboard and a wider touchpad, its use of more forward-looking technologies with USB-C and Thunderbolt 3, and a higher-resolution screen. However, If you're looking to keep your purchase price between $1,250 and $1,599, then the New Razer Blade Stealth with Core i7 processor and QHD touch screen or the Asus ZenBook 3 are certainly worthy of space on your short list. But if you enjoy its aesthetics, the VAIO S is a good alternative, especially if wired networks or VGA projectors play a major role in the work you do.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» 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.

1.05 kg:

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


Sony: Sony Corporation is a multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Japan. Sony is one of the leading manufacturers of electronics, video, communications, video game consoles, and information technology products for the consumer and professional markets. Its name is derived from sonus, the Latin word for sound. The company was founded 1946 with another name and renamed in 1958. Sony Corporation is the electronics business unit and the parent company of the Sony Group, which is engaged in business through its five operating segments—electronics, games, entertainment (motion pictures and music), financial services and other. Sony is a notebook manufacturer of medium size according international market shares.

From 2014, Sony has reduced the production of Vaio laptops and finally discontinued them. Sony is still present in the smartphone and tablet market, yet not among the Top 5 manufacturers.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
