Sony want to be compatible with Dell and HP. And this new Sony VAIO VPCEH25EN notebook is engineered to meet your entertainment needs at an affordable price.

So far it looks good and can be treated as a very good deal. However, in my personal opinion i wish you should read some points which i think you should consider if you are really serious about a better usability.

I have been using two laptops from Sony, and my personal experience.. the drivers and software's that Sony provides tend to crash. There is no particular place from where you can download ALL of them. (Especially the utility software's). You need to (backup) burn a couple of Dual Layer DVDs and the DVD Drive is useless even with minimum usage, but getting the parts changed (in warranty period) is quick.

  • I feel its very low Hard Disk Capacity. 320 GB (officially), around 280 GB(Bundled), and around 297GB (after formatting)
  • RAM (2GB) is NOT LOW for NORMAL usage, same with Processor.
  • Webcam performs very bad… almost like the olden days VGA Camera.
  • WiFi is poor ( only 1-2MB/s when I was transferring files from another Vaio.
  • The Screen is Awesome!! You won't find better. But the Speakers are pathetic.
  • On the long run, the borders of the screen develop scratches due to folding.
  • The "ASSIST" and "VAIO" keys on the top of my laptop worked only once when i bought this laptop.
  • Headphone and Mic inputs are on the left side. I personally feel better if its in front.
  • No dedicated key for volume. That means, you have to control the volume and brightness using Function “FN” key. But it will work only if your drivers are working perfect.

Overall, If you look style, brand and performance. Sony VAIO VPCEH25EN is good for the current price tag.
