Sony has delivered some of the best laptops and hybrids around today. The company's Vaio seriers had received praises and good market reception throughout the years. As the company continues to rake in success for their high end products, Sony has also decided to deliver a similar user experience and computing capacity but for a more affordable price. Introducing the Sony Vaio Fit, the company now provides a budget laptop with all the high end specs.
The Fit 15E, as the name implies, is as flexible as users can expect. It follows a similar format of the famed Lenovo Yoga Pro. What is even better is that people can visit Sony's Web site to configure the specifications based on their preferences.
Specs to choose from include a touch screen, Full HD display, backlist keyboard and a series of CPU, graphics and hard disk options. It is a personal as any computing device can get. This also assures users that they can work with a device best fitted to their needs.
The model in spotlight runs on Intel's ultra-low-voltage processors, 500GB hard disk and 4GB RAM. It may appear not much but the 1.8GHz Core i3-3217U has been Sony's ticket to a 0.56 record in Real World Benchmarks.
Although the device only runs on a 2,670mAh battery, it can offer up to more than 5 hours of battery life. That is a good deal for a budget laptop. As for other features, the device is just as impressive. The Sony Fit includes USB 2 ports on the side and a DVD writer, HDMI, two USB 3 ports and audio inputs and outputs.
The device also sports Gigabit Ethernet socket, Bluetooth 4, single-band 802.11n and NFC. The design of the Vaio Fit is just right for its budget category. People can find a slight flex by the base although they may have to be more careful about the lid.
Users should be careful about flexing the lid from one side to another. The plastic panel can slightly move out of position. Nonetheless, people can find a big wrist rest that is paired ideally with the Scrabble-tile keyboard on top. The keys have a cushioned break towards the end of each stroke. This helps people prevent typing wrongly or pressing the wrong keys.
The 15.5-inch display allows users to do away with the touchpad. An individual can pinch, swipe and flick through Windows 8 and apps smoothly. With an affordable price and excellent specs, the Sony Vaio Fit is worth checking out.
