It could also be an advanced gaming laptop thanks to the 8 GB of RAM memory, the video card on 128 bits and the high end processor. There would be some extra interesting features like the SSD hard drive which has a way bigger speed than a SATA 2 one and an access time of only 0.1 ms. It can operate at very low temperatures, it is shock resistant and extremely silent. The laptop comes as a more performing alternative to Sony Vaio VPC-SB1V9E.
Then there is the finger print reader and the USB 3.0 port along with the screen which has different protections and the illuminated keyboard. With the help of the new USB you can transfer for example a Blu-Ray movie in less than 1 minute.

If you are looking for a high-end notebook that you want to spend your money on you should make sure you get just what you need. There are a lot of notebooks there, that cost a small fortune but some might not be what you’re looking for. In order to give you the best options we will look at several notebooks, leaving the consumer to decide which one is the best for its needs.
The MacBook Air is the addition to the Apple family and it is a little bit too expensive for its size (11 inches). But it comes with a great design, an awesome keyboard and a trackpad to go with it. The performance on this one is great and you should take it into consideration if you are planning to get a high-end notebook.
The Hp Envy is a great option for those who are looking for a notebook with a large display. It has a full 1080p one and the 17 inch screen makes it a pleasure to watch any kind of movie, graphic and so on. It is quite slim considering its size and its display is one of the best I’ve come across. The speakers are great as far as laptops go and all in all, it will provide you with an excellent media experience.
Of course that high-end notebooks mean gaming notebooks and this is where the Alienware M11x comes in. It has exceptional everything; from sound to graphics and display it is a powerful machine. For its size it is quite large but that is one of the Alienware trademarks so it isn’t surprising.
If you are looking for the top of the line (with a price that matches that classification) you should be looking at the Sony Vaio VPCZ128GX. It is the only notebook mentioned here that embodies a solid state drive so you know it means business. If you are looking for heavy graphics processing and power all the way this is the one you’re looking for.
The most important thing when getting a high-end notebook is to know what your needs are. If not, you might end up getting a notebook that you will not use at its full capacity and on which you would have spent a lot of money that could have been put to a better use.11

Sometimes PR people are very helpless and clumsy. They are so clumsy than can actually reveal a secret which has been very well kept by an important company, like Sony. Information outside the walls of the company is enough and a secret well kept for months is not exposed to the wide public. But we cannot accuse them, because if it were not for them, we would not know that Sony is about to release a line of cheap Sony laptops.
The story is very short. One of the people at the PR department of Quanta Computer (the most important laptop computers producer which design laptop computers for several big names and then sells them under their personal brand) was presenting a laptop computer based on the OpenBook laptop computer design of people at Via. This was happening at Computex 2008. By mistake, the man accessed the Properties window of the operating system where mass media representatives clearly saw that Sony was the producer of this laptop computer model.
Of course that after the audience noticed this and started asking questions, the Quanta Computer representative, being aware of his mistake, rapidly closed the window. But he was not fast enough, so pictures were taken before he actually managed to close the window. Therefore, the cheap Sony laptops created by Quanta Computer, will have a VX800 chip set, Via 1.6 GHz C7-M processor, 1 GB RAM memory, 60 GB hard disk, 8.9 inch display (1024 x 600 pixels), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Windows Vista as operating system.
Now that the secret has been discovered the only thing left is for Sony to officially announce the future cheap laptop, because we are also interested in knowing the name of this model as well. And we also want to find out how much we are going to have to pay for this model. Sony Corporation of America which is based in New York, NY, is an U.S. subsidiary of Sony Corporation, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. Sony is the leading manufacturer of audio, video, communications and information technology products for consumer and professional market. Sony is one of the most wide ranging entertainment companies worldwide and it motions pictures, television, computer entertainment and music.
Sony’s main U.S. businesses include Sony Electronics Inc., Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc., Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc., and Sony Music Entertainment. Sony had annual sales of approximately $78.9 billion for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2009, and it employs 171,300 people all over the world. I personally recommend that you buy such a piece of hardware, made by Sony, because this company has a very respectable tradition with electronics and you are sure not to go wrong when choosing to spend your hard earned money on a device conceived and made by the people at Sony. Here I do not just mean laptop computers, but also home theaters, DVD players, stereos and anything else that you can think of.
Indeed, there have been some problems between artists, such as George Michael, and branches of the Sony company, but this has no bearing on the devices they make and, after all, I am sure that you really do not need someone in the entertainment industry telling you what you need to spend your money on. They get paid to “like” or “dislike” various items, you know?11
We have already established that the desktop system has been slowly replaced by laptops or notebooks, due to the mobility and artistry that laptops offer. Having settled the supremacy of the laptop over the desktop system, it is now time to continue our permanent search for the perfect laptop that is the laptop that suits you best.
The topic of the day is a comparison between Sony and Toshiba, two of the best and most famous brands on the market, which one shall we choose? They both have pros and cons, still one must be better, let’s see which that is.
Sony has great design features, I for one love Sony, always stylish, beautiful LCD colors and cool external components. The Sony laptops are manufactured in Quanta, that means great quality and furthermore originality. I think this is the best way to describe a Sony laptop: ORIGINAL. You can always tell a genuine Sony from a fake one.
Nevertheless, the originality feature is not always in the best interest of the client, because due to their originality, Sony parts are a bit hard to find and also expensive, or you might get „ lucky” and they will not send you the parts you need but ask you to send your laptop and they will fix the problem (I am talking here about the laptops that are still under warranty, because after the warranty expires the problem is even bigger). But do not feel at ease because in most cases the bill is outrageous (although for laptops under warranty the costumer does not need to pay for service until the laptop problems are due to the costumer’s fault). Another weak point with Sony is the battery life is kind of short therefore restraining your mobility.
Let’s see how Toshiba manages? The screen features are not as better as those of Sony, but it has a longer battery life and due to the Japanese fabrication the parts are not as hard to find or as expensive, and there are no warranty complaints, as I heard. Therefore are you having problems with Toshiba components no worries? If they are under warranty they will change it without problems, and if not you can rebuild you hole laptop with parts that you buy yourself, so respect for Toshiba for this! When it comes to price Toshiba is more accessible. Still Toshiba tends to overhead faster than Sony after a long use, so that’s a bad one for Toshiba.
Nevertheless the choice is yours between Sony and Toshiba. You might not have problems regardless the laptop you buy, your might just have. As I said in a previous article, when buying a laptop you must consider your needs and afterwards adapt your needs to what you what to buy. There will always be pros and cons no matter what you choose, still I am curious what would you choose: the Sony originality or Toshiba’s practical approach? I would choose Sony regardless of its weak points, but this is only my opinion, it does not have to be yours as well.11
It is clear that in 2010 Sony wants to increase the market share held by the powerful Sony laptop computers in the Vaio range, so, after launching the W series of notebooks, which are quite accessible, now comes a series of Sony laptop computers with a normal format, with a 15.5 inch screen, high multimedia performance as well as a more than decent price tag attached to them.
The Sony laptop computers in this range also come equipped with the internet and email access solution called Quick Web Access, which also allows access to all your favorite applications without you having to wait for the windows operating system to boot up. The screen is a good Full HD, the laptop comes with HDMI outlets and Dolby Home Theater V3 sound technology, which comes as a bit of icing on the Vaio cake. The Sony Vaio E laptop is one very compact piece of hardware and it manages to bring along a multitude of functions that you would normally get only by using a much bigger, heavier and overall bulkier piece of hardware.
The keyboard on this particular laptop is complex, with isolated keys which allow the user to write in an extremely comfortable fashion. The Sony laptop computers in this range come fitted with the new Core latest generation processors from Intel and with $ GB of DD3 memory. The HDD reaches a nice 500 GB while the video board is a ATI Mobility Radeon 5000 which packs 1GB of VRAM.
This laptop has a special button for technical assistance, which basically means that the laptop goes Optimus Prime on you. If there is a problem, you push this button and the tool attempts to fix itself or at least see what is going wrong and what needs to be done. If it is unable to fix itself, the laptop tells you what happened and informs you on what you need to do. The Sony laptop computers in the Vaio E series run on Windows 7 Home Premium Edition. As a feature, you can add a Blu Ray optical unit.
I, for one, I am trembling with anticipation and can hardly wait to get my hands on one of these babies. Sony makes excellent hardware and the Vaio series is a range of almost flawless notebooks, top of the line tools for even the pickiest of the users out there. You’ve seen how it looks, you’ve seen what it can do, you have probably had the chance to check other Vaio models and, if you are not completely computer illiterate, I am pretty sure you are also dying to see one of these laptops in action.
Of course, I could go on and on about the features this range of laptops from Sony boasts, and how advantageous the quality – price ratio is, but you might get bored and leave. So, all I am saying right now is wait for it, seek it, test it, buy it, fall in love with it. It’s a natural process, you will see.11
