Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPC-EJ3D1E/W
Source: Gadgetmix Archive.org version
Sony rarely compromises on build quality or the chic aesthetics of its portfolio, one reason the snappily-named Sony VPC-EJ3D1E lands at 800 euros ($1015), while notebooks featuring similar specs can be had cheaper elsewhere. The Sony Vaio EJ3D slightly trails the pack in performance and display quality and the lack of USB-3 means a few extra seconds shifting files to and from USB sticks, but keyboard and mouse are both excellent and its appearance means the EJ3D will appeal to many.

NVIDIA GeForce 410M: Entry level graphics card based on the GF119 chip but compared to the 520M with lower clock rates.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
2450M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.5 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.8-3.1 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1300 MHz Turbo).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.
