Summary: Those who like the idea of owning a laptop that's as portable as a netbook but offers more graphics power will find the VAIO E Series 11 to be an attractive choice. Of course, a sub-$500 15-inch notebook is the way to go if performance is a priority.
Excerpt: This bright sub-$1,000 notebook handled multitasking well, and its CPU was powerful, though it struggled with 3D gaming. Moderately demanding users with a hankering for color will like this model.
Summary: Sony's VAIO E Series notebooks are intended for general purpose use, and the VPCEJ15FG fulfils that requirement happily. If you're trying to complete too many tasks at once the E Series does tend to pause for a few seconds, but we only encountered this a few times in our testing.
Pros: Reasonable price-tag, Good build quality and design
Cons: Keyboard should be larger, A Full HD screen would have been nice, Slightly bland styling may turn off some
