Sony has delivered a solid all-round budget laptop, and the ability to tailor the specification of the VAIO Fit 15E to any budget is welcome. The build quality could be improved, but with good performance, plenty of features and a usable touchscreen for only £549, this laptop is worth considering.

Even with an adequate processor and lots of connectivity, the Sony Vaio Fit 15E just adds fail on top of fail—starting with the screen, which has low brightness, low contrast and unfaithful colours. Then there's the short battery life and hefty body... For this type of product in this price range, we prefer the HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
