Reviews for the Sony Vaio VPCEB16FG
Source: Good Gear Guide
The Sony VAIO E-Series VPC-EB16FG is a 15.5in notebook designed for everyday use. The term 'stylish' is an understatement when it comes to describing this laptop: our review unit came with a bright, eye-catching aqua lid. The Sony VAIO VPCEB16FG notebook is a nice all round performer, although the build quality leaves something to be desired and its battery life is poor.

Sony's VAIO EB Series laptop shines with strong Core i3 performance, though price is a little high As the first of Sony's new EB Series laptops to hit the pages of PC Authority, the VAIO VPC-EB16FG didn't have to do much to grab our attention. But as well as a box-fresh design and new graphics chipset from ATI, there's one component that makes this laptop truly exciting: Intel's Core i3 mobile processor.
