Sony VAIO VPC EB11FX/T Laptop with Core i3 Review

Sony VAIO VPC-EB11FX/T Laptop

This laptop features Intel’s latest Core i3-330M processor. The Core i3 features dual cores capable of four processing threads.  It is a 64-bit processor that comes with 3 MB of L3 cache, runs at 2.13 GHz and built on a 32 nm die.  That means lower power, and less heat, which is ideal for a laptop.  It has 4 GB of DDR3 RAM (1066MHz) and can be expanded to 8 GB.  This is enough to smoothly multitask.

The display is a 15.5″ LCD display with a resolution of 1366 x 768.  The 16:9 aspect ratio makes it suitable for watching widescreen DVDs. The screen is driven by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD with 1759 MB total available graphics memory. This uses the Mobile Intel® HM55 Express Chipset.

The hard drive is a 320GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive (5400 rpm).  Not quite 500GB, but what were you going to do with that extra 180GB anyway? The optical drive is a multiformatDVD±R/RW Drive with double layer drive.

For networking this notebook comes with a built-in 10Base-T/100Base-TX/1000Base-T Ethernet LAN port (RJ-45) for all your wired Internet connections.  The wireless adapter is an integrated 802.11 b/g/n WiFi adapter for connecting to your home wireless network, or for sitting around at Starbucks and working on your screenplay. This computer does not have a modem. The memory card reader has one Memory Stick PRO™ (STD / Duo) media slot with MagicGate® functionality, 1 ExpressCard® /34 media slot and  1 Secure Digital (SD memory card) media slot.

You can test out that networking by using the built-in MOTION EYE® camera and microphone with face-tracking technology to Skype with family and friends around the world.

Other external ports include 1 HDMI™ output port (max resolution 1920×1080), 1 headphone jack, 1 internal microphone, 1 microphone jack, 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 shared USB 2.0/eSATA port, and 1 analog VGA port for connecting an external monitor (max resolution 2048×1536).

This VAIO comes with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit installed. Other software includes Sony® Creativity Suite,   VAIO® Media Gallery,  VAIO® Media Plus, VAIO Care™, Norton Internet Security™ 2010 30-day trial offer, and Microsoft® Works SE 9.0 w/ 60-daytrial version of Microsoft® Office Home and Student 2007.

The laptop has a 6-cell Lithium ion battery pack which provides up to 3.5 hours of unplugged power.  The system measures 14.56 (W) x 9.77 (D) x 1.22 (H) inches and weighs in at 5.9 pounds.

The Sony Vaio (model: VPC-EB11FX/T) laptop can be found for around $700.
