Sony Vaio E Series VPC-EH2C0E
Advantages: Light weight, doesnt get hot, quiet to run, lovely to use
I was really lucky this year, my lovely Other Half bought me a new laptop for Christmas. I had asked for a new one but I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the wrapping paper and saw what was on the box. It was a Sony Vaio laptop and it is lovely.
The computer is run by an Intel Pentium dual core processor which has a 2.1 GHz processor speed. The hard drive is 320 GB and it has 4 GB of RAM memory. The display screen is a nice 15.5 inches. That's the nitty gritty bits done with, now to how I find it.
The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box was that it is very light weight up to out old one. This is brilliant for me because I have dodgy arms but I can lift this one quite easily with my one good hand/arm. Another good thing is that it is very quiet. You can hardly hear any noise coming from it at all unless I put a cd or dvd in the drive, then you hear the normal whirring, but even that isn't that loud. Another good thing is that it doesn't get hot like the old one used to. I suffer from the cold and like to have a blanket over my legs of an evening and I used to find the other laptop got really uncomfortable after a while but this one, you can hardly feel any heat coming from it even if its on for ages.
The laptop has a nice feel to it, the top of the cover has a raised pattern to it which feels really nice to touch. It makes it less slippery when you do not have a good grip like I do. The same pattern is on the inside too each side of the mouse. It makes the laptop seem very luxurious. The mouse itself has a texture to it which takes a bit of getting used to as I am used to a smooth mouse pad on the old one. It is easy to manoeuvre the mouse around the screen though. The keyboard is nice once I got used to it. It is different to our old one as it has the number pad on the side like you get on a normal keyboard. This means the other keys are smaller so as I touch type, it took me a few days to get used to where the keys were as I kept hitting the wrong ones, but I love it now.
The laptop runs Windows 7 which is new to me. It didn't take me long to get used to it as it is not that much different to Vista, I think it is easier to use than Vista though and it seems a lot quicker but that might just be where I have a higher spec computer now.
The laptop connects to the wireless network and was easy to set up myself. It also has a blue tooth connection which is brilliant as I can connect to my phone without having to find the leads. I can also connect to anyone elses phone who comes round so it is easy share photos with them.
The sound on the laptop is nice even with the tiny speakers that come with it. On our old one we used to have the sound up the highest if we were trying to watch something on IPlayer or something, but on this one I only have to have it on half way and it is as loud already as the other one was. I have used it with my headphones I got with my phone and the sound then is really nice. It is lovely to be able to watch a programme now without having that round thing going round and round and the programme stopping and starting.
Well, that's about all I can tell you about my lovely new laptop. There are lots of things on it that I haven't had time to try out yet but I would highly recommend it. The price of them at the moment ranges from between £450 and £500.
