Sony VAIO E15 Laptop Computer

Sony VAIO E15 Laptop Computer Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Info: The VAIO E15 is among Sony’s mainstream notebook computer, featuring Intel’s new Ivy Bridge processor. In addition, it sports a rather sophisticated design bearing a large 15-inch display as well as an amazing collection of audio and video editing applications. Because of its fast processor and large display, it can easily be a favorite among media creators, but also among consumers who want more from a laptop.

Design-wise, the Sony VAIO E15 is as subtle as they come. The chassis is made of aluminum with a brushed texture effect that contributes both on the way it looks and on how easy the VAIO E15 can be gripped despite its size. It measures 14.7 x 10 x 1-1.32 inches and weighs 5.4 pounds, both of the parameters within the average among the laptops of its category. The effect is an elegant yet simple look, leaning more towards the modern rather than straight-laced. The wrapped design is quite a refresher, and consists of a strip of dark gray color that goes around the bottom of the device, up to the front, and over towards the deck of the laptop.

When looked at a certain way, the closed Sony VAIO E15 seems like an envelope that has been folded over itself. When the lid is closed, it stops short of a quarter inch off the bottom part of the device, completing the effect. Aside from the standard aluminum hue, the VAIO E15 is available with a splash color – Sharkskin Black, and Seafoam White. The inside of the laptop also conveys the same kind of pleasing design. It has a dark gray deck that is matted and made up of sturdy and thickened plastic. This contrasts nicely with the glossy black of the speaker located through the bar at the top of the device.

Above the keyboard are a couple of buttons for VAIO Assist, Web, and VAIO care. The power button is circular and is hued dark gray. The keyboard itself contains sufficiently large island-style keys that are LED backlit so the user won’t have any problem typing in the dark. Typing can be pretty fast and accurate but some keys like the left tab and Caps Lock are a bit undersized. The touch pad on the other hand is sufficiently big at 3.9 x 2.2 inches and has a submerged layout with a slim chrome border. It supports multi-touch gestures like two finger scrolling, pinch to zoom, and other swift and smooth movements. It is responsive enough while the mouse buttons are not discrete but nonetheless offer quite a strong feedback and accurate right clicks.

Interface-wise, the Sony VAIO E15 contains three USB version 2.0 ports on the right side, a tray-loading DVD burner as well as a secure lock slot. There are respective slots for an SD Card reader and Memory Stick Duo on the left front lip of the VAIO E15. On the left side is a much faster USB version 3.0 port with charging capability, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet and jacks for headphone, microphone and power.

As mentioned, the Sony VAIO E15 is a 15 incher. Specifically, it features a 15.5-inch LED backlit screen with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. The colors off the display are rich and sufficiently vibrant, while the blacks and other contrasts are deep and quite breathtaking. However, the panel isn’t as bright with only 141 lux compared with the average 274 lux within its category. Audio-wise, the sounds coming off of the Sony VAIO E15 are really good. Listening to music and watching movies are all great experiences thanks to the crisp and clear audio of the VAIO E15. There is however some loss of percussion and unclear low pitch sounds, although these setbacks seem pretty minor compared to what the audio of the device gives.

Performance-wise, the Sony VAIO E15 delivers a solid one using its 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5-3210M (Ivy Bridge) processor, 6 GB worth of RAM, 750 GB 5,400-rpm hard drive, and Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU. It is defaulted to run a 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium, which only takes under a minute to boot. As for the graphics, it caters quite decently although it may not be relied upon to run graphically taxing applications so smoothly. As for battery life, the Sony VAIO E15 can last around five hours from a single charge.
