Reviews for the VAIO SX12-VJS121X0211A

65% The Vaio SX12 offers too little for too much
Source: The Verge English
But the awful touchpad, the cramped display, and lack of a Thunderbolt 3 port that could help alleviate those problems are deal-breakers for me. The SX12 did everything I needed it to, but it wasn’t fun to use. I might tolerate that in a sub-$1,000 notebook, but at $1,600, you shouldn’t have to make those compromises.

One of the smallest and lightest laptops you can buy, the VAIO SX12 is a finely crafted 12.5-inch ultraportable with great connectivity, but one or two ergonomic gotchas.

The Vaio SX12 is a stylish ultraportable business laptop with fast performance, but its small touchpad is hard to use and battery life is short.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


i7-8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.5":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.894 kg:

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


68.33%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
