For the students out there who are to face multiple academic requirements in school, or workers who have to make tons of office reports, Sony has made yet another great laptop to help you accomplish your tasks. Introducing the new line of Sony Laptops – the Sony Vaio Fit.
Note, however, that Sony Vaio Fit is not the high-end laptop we’re used ot getting from Sony. In fact, the target market of this laptop is those who are on a budget. It sells in the market at lower range of $850 to $1700. But don’t think for moment that it’s second-class. Read on to see how a quality product was made more efficient and affordable.
Judging From the Outside
Sony Vaio Fit 15 is available in 3 different colors: black, silver, pink. The outside looks of Vaio Fit 15 looks like a hybrid of Vaio T and Vaio E. Maybe Sony wanted to be a little sentimental especially since the Fit line is expected to replace the E and T series.
Fit 15 has a brushed aluminum palm rest which looks like plastic from afar. And you will notice that the buttons of the keyboard pretty much looks like T15. It has the same lettering and styles but the function keys—specifically the arrow keys which have the same height as the space bar—are smaller in Fit 15. If you start typing and pressing the keyboard, you will notice that the feel of Vaio Fit 15 is similar to the other Vaio laptops but will less of the clicking sound. What I personally dig about the hardware though is the backlit keyboard whichi makes it suitable for working even at closed-light all-nighter sessions.
Running Fast On A Short Time
For a budget laptop, I can say that Sony Vaio Fit 15 has a decent performance. It actually runs on 1.8 GHz Core i5-3337U processor—or Ivy Bridge—with 8 GB of RAM. Vaio Fit 15 also has a massive hard drive of 750 GB. Sure, it is lower than the mainstream hard drive but Fit 15 managed to be ahead of T15.
With all of these, we can see (and it actually is) that the over-all performance of this laptop is outstanding for a low-cost machine. How can I prove that? It only takes 11 seconds for Fit 15 to start up and see the Start Screen—that speed tops other and more expensive laptops.
As per the running time of Fit 15, this is the not-so-exciting part. Vaio Fit 15 runs on 4-cell Lithium Ion 2670 mAh battery which will let you use it unplugged for about 4 hours. The settings of the test was at default—Wi-Fi is on while brightness at 65 percent.
Seeing and Hearing
Most of the Vaio Fit laptops have a 1920 x 1080 display resolution. Fit 15 is not an exemption to this. With a display size of 15 inches, Fit 15 has an impressive resolution. Even if you view it from a far or from the side, you will see the details of the screen as sharp on the LED panel. This is perfect for watching your favorite movies and TV series, and even if you watch with company, they will see the good display from the side.
The sound system for Sony Vaio Fit 15 is just okay. You will observe that it has pretty much loud speakers. But playing at a louder level only destroys the quality of music as it gives out an off-quality. So you better listen at a lower level or just plug-in your earphones for a better experience.
For a lower cost, we really can’t expect the power we know from the higher-end Vaio laptops. But for regular everyday use that only involves the surfing and document processing, I’d say that the Sony Vaio Fit 15 is the “fit” choice.
