The Sony accumulates fingerprints much less noticeably than other notebooks, especially when compared to ones that have extra-glossy surfaces like the Dell Inspiron 14r. With that said, a couple of features make the Sony less than ideal in the chassis department.


The front edge of the notebook barely tapers down to thinner dimensions, so the thickness from back to front is almost identical at 1. This does, however, allow Sony Vaio VPCEG1BFXB Smart Network user to open the lid with just one hand since the base feels solid and dense.

In general, the Vaio E just cannot match the looks of the higher-end Sony offerings, but it Sony Vaio VPCEG1BFXB Smart Network be difficult to find another notebook as visually refined as this Sony for the given size and price. Connectivity Notebooks in this price range are notorious for having Sony Vaio VPCEG1BFXB Smart Network connectivity options, but the VAIO E thankfully includes many of the basics. Unfortunately, these are bare USB 2. Furthermore, three of these USB ports are tightly packed on the front right edge where connected cables are likely to frustrate right-handed users. Still, all physical ports are evenly distanced from one another and are easily accessible since there are none available on the rear.


Users who choose to Sony Vaio VPCEG1BFXB Smart Network the notebook as a Blu-ray player should definitely take advantage of the HDMI-out port and an HDTV for the full p experience whenever possible. The lack of the latter two features is reasonable as the Vaio E is marketed more as a consumer product than as a business solution, but a simple option for built-in Bluetooth would have still been appreciated.

However, Sony does offer a USB 2. Called the Targus USB 2. The performance of this cover is detailed below in the Input Devices section. Certain programs, such as the trial edition of Norton Internet Security, are set to run in the background by default. Note that the remote keyboard software is essentially Sony Vaio VPCEG1BFXB Smart Network on the inch Vaio E as the software requires Bluetooth to function.

Input Devices Keyboard The flat, non-backlit, Sony Vaio VPCEG1BFXB Smart Network keyboard is sufficiently sized 30cm x There is ample tactile feedback as each key feels firm but still quiet when pressed. Every key is also evenly spaced, easy to reach and not too small. Given the limited surface area of a inch notebook, Sony has done an excellent job integrating a clean layout with an easy-to-use keyboard.

One of the few very minor complaints we have with regards to input keys is the lack of dedicated volume and mute buttons. Given that Sony Vaio VPCEG1BFXB Smart Network was able to add dedicated Assist, Web and Vaio buttons, we think that adding a couple more keys directly above the Function keys specifically for volume control would have been quite useful.

We were also able to test out the keyboard skin accessory, which is essentially a specialized sheet of silicon rubber with recesses made to fit directly over the entire keyboard of the inch Vaio E. The covering protects the keys from normal wear and debris buildup due to everyday typing, all the while offering light resistance to very small spills. Because of its silicon and rubber structure, the thin keyboard skin is also easy to clean and carry if needed and noticeably reduces typing noise. Note, however, that this means slightly reduced tactile feedback, but the trade-off is generally nothing that the user cannot become accustomed to overtime with more use. Touchpad Compared to the superb keyboard, the Sony Vaio VPCEG1BFXB Smart Network falls a bit short, but is still very usable nonetheless.

The textured touchpad is a bit on the small size 7.

Speaking of multi-touch gestures, an annoying aspect of the touchpad worth mentioning is its Sony Vaio VPCEG1BFXB Smart Network transitioning between single-touch use and multi-touch use. For example, if the user has one finger on the touchpad for single-touch use, a second finger can then be placed on the touchpad for multi-touch use, which is how it should intuitively operate. This issue may or may not be bothersome to certain users, but it would be ideal to have a driver update or even a software toggle to fix the inconsistency.

Otherwise, the touchpad is overall responsive, although multi-touch gestures do suffer from the confined surface area. The left and right keys adjacent Sony Vaio VPCEG1BFXB Smart Network the touchpad are just as responsive, relatively quiet and quite discreet, although we feel that they could have used more depth when pressed. Other inch or Consequently, we were satisfied with the available screen estate, at least for everyday browsing or typing.

Subjectively, text and photos appear clearly on the display with no major disapprovals. With the Gossen Mavo-Monitor, we were able to measure a maximum screen brightness of nits on the center left of the screen while the notebook was connected to an outlet.

We would have preferred if the display stayed above nits on each of the nine quadrants tested, but at least the overall brightness is relatively uniform.
