Reviews for the Sony Vaio VGN-P35GK/W

61% Sony VAIO P Netbook (Update) Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
While some would welcome the better processor speeds and cache, new touchpad, and display orientation; others would not think these options were worth sending their old VAIO P in or buying the refresh altogether. Whether or not this redesign is worth the higher price tag or not is up to individual taste and preference. This refresh has improved the processing speed and cache size but stuck with the Intel Atom, greatly improved the standard battery life, added a touchpad and an orientation and display switch option, improved the outer casing style, and more—all the while keeping the ultraportability of the prior version.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 500: Integrated (onboard) graphics chip on the UL11L, US15L, and US15W chipsets with a licensed PowerVR SGX core. DirectX 10.1 support but because of low clock rates (100-200 MHz UL11L - US15) and only 4 shaders not suited for 3D games. The integrated video decoder accelerates the playback of HD videos (MPEG2, VC-1, AVC). These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
Z550: Higher clocked Z520 Atom CPU with a low power consumption.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
8":

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

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.

This weight is typical for small tablets.

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.


61%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
