Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-EB3J0E/WI
On looks and usability alone, not to mention the price, the Sony VAIO VPCEB3J0E/WI is a great choice for a family laptop to handle everyday typing and multimedia tasks. Even though the battery life is below average, we would still recommend the VAIO to any beginner looking to combine great performance with that extra touch of style.

Despite its brief battery life, we think the Sony Vaio VPC-EB3J0E/WI would make an excellent choice as a family laptop thanks to its decent performance, stylish design and impressive array of ports. Its relatively low price tag helps to make it an even more tempting proposition.
