Sony VAIO VPC-SE2C5E Laptop Review
The Sony VAIO VPCSE2C5E, a 15.5-inch laptop with a speedy 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 CPU, 2.80 GHz processor, comes with an impressive memory storage system, high quality graphics, and a built-in DVD drive.
The Sony VAIO VPCSE2C5E is one of Sony’s most user-friendly laptops, with a large 15.5-inch screen, a sleek silver body, an impressive 320GB hard disk drive for storage, and 4 GB of synchronized RAM. The LCD screen and integrated graphics offers top-notch picture quality in high definition. The laptop’s operating system is compatible with Windows 7, and its exterior is designed to be easily portable but also durable.
Full HD and High Performing Processor
One of the most appealing features of the Sony VAIO VPCSE2C5E is its HD display, which offers a 1920×1080 resolution and an integrated HD graphics system that guarantees excellent picture quality. The dedicated HD graphics also extend to the computer’s webcam, which picks up and transmits images in high definition using its advanced 1.31 Megapixel technology. The graphics (and all other laptop functions) are supported by an advanced Intel Core i7-2640M processor that runs at a speed of 2.8 GHz—characteristics that make the VAIO VPCSE2C5E’s CPU highly competitive with other laptops of comparable sizes.
Memory and Storage
This Sony laptop is equipped with an SDRAM system, which is ideal for those who do not use many advanced graphics programs, and who are looking for an economical memory system. SDRAM synchs up with a computer’s system and can be supplemented with separately purchased memory sticks, allowing a user to essentially enhance the laptop’s data storage system, depending on how much memory they want or need. The VAIO VPCSE2C5E itself comes with one memory stick and an SD card slot for adding more RAM and reading additional data.
Battery Life and Connectivity
The VAIO VPCSE2C5E has a default battery life of four hours on a full charge, but the computer also comes with an energy saving function that allows the user to maximize battery life by minimizing energy use. By selecting this energy saving function, consumers can add two to three hours to the life of a single battery charge. The laptop also comes with built-in wireless and Bluetooth connectivity, though it should be noted that when turned on, a Bluetooth connection may drain the battery more quickly.
