Reviews for the VAIO SX14, i7-1165G7

60% Vaio SX14 (2021) review: Swing and a miss
Source: Laptop Mag English
If there’s anything the Vaio SX14 (2021) has taught me, it’s that power isn’t the deciding factor of a laptop. While the Intel Core i7-1165G7 CPU and 32GB of RAM wipe the floor with other highly rated laptops on our list of best 14-inch laptops, it comes at the detriment of the overall design and functionality. If the SX14 came with a decent keyboard, better display, and audio I didn’t want to mute, Vaio would be more of a respected competitor in the laptop field — the price tag would also make a lot more sense. While our list of the best 14-inch laptops don’t have the same impressive specs, they still churn out the power and battery life needed for any professional to be happy with. Plus, much like the HP Spectre x360 14 and Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (Gen 9), their design has been fine-tuned to get you through the working day comfortably, and they come at a much more affordable price. Vaio has made some admirable updates to its SX14, including its variety of ports, but there are still a few dents to hammer out before playing with the big leagues.

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.
