Sony VAIO SVE15119FJ 15.5-Inch Notebook Review

Ever since the advent of the ultra books, the laptop world has changed massively. These laptops provide wafer thin size with 8 hours of battery life. But the notebooks are something that are always a choice for some people who don’t want to empty their fat wallets on a fancy slim and good laptop. Notebooks are cheap, versatile and are good performers as well the only chink in the armor being the portability.

Sony decides to keep the vaio series as the ‘notebook only’ laptops since they have not released a vaio ultra book till date. Here is a performance powerhouse from Sony- The vaio SVE15119FJ which is comparable to the ultra books out there.

Sony VAIO SVE15119FJ 15.5-Inch Features


Sony VAIO SVE15119FJ

The display of the vaio is 15.5 inches in size and has LCD screen with a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. Apart from being capable of displaying HD videos and images, it is also worth for midrange gamer.


The looks are quite similar to any other Sony vaio laptop in the market. The 1.3MP web camera on the middle, with a stylish chiclet keyboard that is comfortable to type on and with a good metallic finish.

Processor and Memory

Powerhouse it is, as mentioned earlier, housing an Intel core i7-3612QM 2.10 GHz processor and giving a mammoth 8GB DDR3 of RAM. The 750GB of Hard Disk is enough for keeping all the important files and media. There is an Intel HM76 express chipset graphics card as well which is reasonably enough.

Battery life

The goodness of battery life is what makes the laptop worth buying and that makes it portable because no one would have an electrical socket to stick the charger with the laptop while on travelling. There is a disappointing 4.5 hours of battery life. However, this is only when the battery is at its full potential (brightness is full, with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on). One could certainly bring out more battery life by reducing the brightness and turning off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when not needed.

Although being a good laptop with good hardware and display, the laptop is priced tad higher ($2000 or 100000 Rs) than what it really offers and is thus only suited for fat wallets. But the looks are equally appealing and will be surely be a head turner in some events.

Thus, the vaio series has again brought a laptop that are not affordable to the middle class people and the people would again have to take laptops from other companies that offer the same specs at price lower than that of the vaio.
