Sony Vaio X Series Review

Digitaltrends
3 February 2010
  • Excerpt: After teasing us with the sleek but useless Vaio P , Sony went back to the drawing board for the launch of Windows 7 to design an impossibly thin and light notebook unhindered by the many, many flaws of its predecessor: the Vaio X. Though it rides on netbook hardware like the P, a speedier CPU and larger, more usable form factor put this model head and shoulders above it.
  • Pros: Truly unprecedented size and weight, Sharp, high-resolution, LED-backlit screen, Acceptable desktop performance, Solid carbon-fiber chassis
  • Cons: Extreme price premium for netbook hardware, Dismal built-in speaker, Won't handle many movies and games

Sony VAIO X

MobileTechReview.com
13 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The Sony Vaio X is as much a step forward for technology as it is a step forward in geek-chic, frou-frou computing. Whether you have a bad back, are sick of frequent flying with large notebooks that have overkill computing power, or just want to have the sexiest hardware in the office, the Vaio X has its appeal. It offers most of the creature comforts of a standard notebook in an impossibly thin, light and well-built package.
  • Pros: Surreally thin and light., The notebook offers standard notebook design and ergonomics made as thin and light as possible. The X looks and feels like no other notebook. Great display, extremely long battery life, pleasant though smallish keyboard, standard ports are on-board. Plenty of wireless including Verizon EV-DO Rev. A and a GPS with Streets and Trips too.
  • Cons: Graphics performance isn't exciting., Expensive, good for light to moderate work but no workhorse for desktop replacement tasks and gaming. No optical drive.

Sony Vaio X im Test: Notebook mit Kohlefaser-Gehäuse

CNET
3 December 2009
  • Summary: Das Vaio X steht mit einem Bein im Lager der Netbooks und mit dem anderen auf Notebook-Territorium. Im Gegensatz zu den typischen Mini-Rechnern ist der winzige Sony allerdings alles andere als ein Schnäppchen. Unser Testgerät schlägt mit 1499 Euro zu Buche, in der günstigsten Konfiguration reißt das Vaio X immer noch ein 1299 Euro tiefes Loch in den Geldbeutel. Wir fühlen dem Flachmann auf den Zahn.
  • Pros: unglaublich dünn und leicht, ausgezeichnete Laufzeit mit stärkerem Akku, schneller als die üblichen Netbooks, 128 GByte SSD-Speicher
  • Cons: teuer angesichts der Leistung, schwacher Standard-Akku
