Reviews for the VAIO SX14 VJS144X0111K
Vaio wants you to pony up Apple levels of money for a Windows PC. While the lower-end Core i5 configuration is decently priced for what you're getting, our high-end Core i7 configuration doesn't offer much more to justify its enormous $700 surcharge.

The SX14 plays in an incredibly competitive league—lightweight 14-inch laptops are the backbone of business computing and attract power-user consumers as well—and it has several good points, but not enough to stand out. The price cut offered during our review is a good sign, but we'd still lean toward one of the VAIO's rivals from Lenovo, HP, or Dell—especially the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
73.6%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
