Sony Vaio VPC-YB3 Series
Sleek, compact design, Nice display, HDMI output
AMD Fusion APU offers versatile processing and graphics perfromance, Full-sized, comfortable keyboard.
The Sony Vaio YB35KX/B has a lot of hard-drive space, solid performance from an AMD E-450 processor, and long battery life; this 11-incher has the portability of a Netbook, and it's reasonably affordable.
Sluggish performance, Excess bloatware needs pruning to make laptop usable, Frustrating Sony software, Beeps when adjusting volume, Merely average battery life
Battery life falls short of competition, Keys rattle, Touchpad is small.
The cramped keyboard and touch pad make this Vaio feel more like a Netbook from 2010 than an ultrabook from 2011, and it lacks USB 3.0.

As I’d expect of any ultraportable from Sony, the VAIO Y (VPCYB36KG/B) is attractive – smooth lines, glossy 11.6-inch display in a thin lid, and solid barrel-hinge holding the machine together. That said, it has a maximum thickness of 32mm....70

The Sony Vaio YB35KX/B has a gray-black plastic exterior that makes it look rather blaze, but it doesn't look bad in the end. It measures 11.4 x 8.0 x 1.3-inches (wdh) and weighs just over 3-pounds, so it's extremely portable and small enough to...70

I've always been a fan of Sony's Vaios, a line of notebooks that can be considered a dream for every geek. However, Vaios used to be peppery priced, so only available to a bunch of lucky ones. I said used to because things changed in the last...-

Deze laptop gekocht bij MediaMarkt in hun btw-vrije weekend, er ging dus E100,- af. Ik heb deze gekozen, omdat het beeldscherm en het toetsenbord beter zijn dan die van het HP-broertje (dm1). En omdat het oog ook wat wil natuurlijk. Heel blij mee o.a....80
