Powerful enough for common tasks

The hardware is built around a small AMD E2-1800 and 4GB of memory. Applications are fluid, the PC remains responsive as you do not run ten applications at the same time. In addition, the Vaio is not built for complex 3D games because the integrated graphics processor (AMD Radeon 7340) is too limited in power and resources. This card however processes movies and Full HD videos from YouTube with gusto, for the fans! Storage, meanwhile, is provided by a 500GB hard drive’s performance is average, but its capacity is significant. The provision of two stereo speakers is not the most convincing either. Prefer them a good headset.
Hot and sometimes noisy

Quiet most of the time, ventilation tends to take as soon as you apply a little machine (between 33.6 and 40.9 dB measured). Mercury climbs high enough while testing. On the palm rest, the temperature approaches 36° C and under the machine, the maximum reached 43.9 ° C. Beware of hot shots on the thighs!
