  • Windows 8 with touch screen and 1080p display. Zippy new Intel Core i53337U processor. Storage capacity without compromise thanks to 750GB hard drive and 24GB solidstate cache. Quality programs and service trials instead of the usual bloatware.
  • Good keyboard, Strong processor performance, Many options

  • Thick for an ultrabook. Touchpad has gesture support, but it's touchy
  • Poor touchpad, Short battery life, Poor value, Some pricy options

Like Toshiba's middling effort, the Sony Vaio E-Series SVE1511C5E also failed to wow us in our Iceland group test. The Intel 2.3GHz Pentium B970 processor, 4GB RAM and 500GB HDD are middle of the road to say the list, and though the keyboard felt...

Sony's refreshed Sony Vaio E fits snuggly into the current mainstream laptop market, but the computer is also what you make of it. The review unit we received is a typical budget laptop that makes a few subtle attempts to class things up. It...

The Sony Vaio SVE1511K1E feels slightly clunky and we aren’t fans of the buttonless trackpad. The gesture control is something of a gimmick, too. Nonetheless this laptop is a decent performer - gaming aside - with a great screen for watching video...

The VAIO E15 designed by the Japanese team at Sony is definitely a good looker. Not only that, but it also performs well. The sound quality and variety of apps found in its app suite also greatly make up for the poor third-generation Core i5 CPU. Add to...

Wir können dem Sony Vaio 15E11Z1EB keine Empfehlung aussprechen. Die gravierendste Schwäche findet sich beim spiegelnden und schwach ausgeleuchteten Display, auch der Sound und die Multimedialeistung werden der Preisklasse von 900 Euro nicht...

Das SVE1511X1ESI besitzt eine gediegene Optik und eine ordentliche Verarbeitung. Die silberfarbenen, rutschfesten Kunststoff-Oberflächen sind unanfällig für Fingerabdrücke und bieten eine gute Anfassqualität. Die...

Das Sony VAIO E1511X1EB präsentiert sich als gut verarbeitetes Multimedia-Notebook. Jedoch ohne nennenswerte Stärken. Nichts an dem 15,5-Zoll Notebook hebt sich von der Konkurrenz ab. Im Gegenteil, zum Einstiegspreis von 749 Euro bekommt man...
