83% Sony Vaio YB reviewed: one of the first Fusion laptops on the market
Source: PC Authority English
One thing that we wish Sony had done was slap more memory into the Vaio YB. While 2GB is pretty standard for netbooks, the GPU part of the E-350 eats up 400MB right off the bat. Bumping the RAM up to 3 or 4GB would just give that little bit of extra buffer so memory didn't become an issue when running heavy loads. Overall though, it is a minor qualm over a product that generally exceeds our expectations.
