Sony VAIO T Series SVT13112FXS Review
I was looking around for a good and sturdy laptop for myself. My previous laptop had a lot of issues and I really wanted to change it. This is when I bought this laptop. This is very a nice looking machine, suitable for home users and business types. However it isn’t all that great for serious gamers since it lacks a dedicated graphics processor which was a bit disappointing. As soon as I got this machine I started checking out its specs and trust me this machine will not disappoint you in that area.
The overall build of the machine is pretty solid, it doesn’t really creak or flex much. I really like the touchpad since it is pretty responsive and has a full area click feature! A slight downside of the touchpad is that while clicking, the mouse sometimes drifts away slightly while I am still on the touch surface; I found tapping the touchpad more reliable. The keyboard is click-less and has a very nice resist and collapse feel, which is why you don’t have to worry about any kind of sponginess.
The screen of this laptop is very bright and has good viewing angles. However it lacks a retina display for sure! I noticed that after making a close inspection of the letters that I had typed, it revealed the step-like stagger of pixellation. However, at the normal screen to eye distance the stagger is smoothed away naturally which is why it doesn’t bother me that much.
The webcam is also pretty great and it produces good color representation from what I have seen. I haven’t tried it in low light conditions as yet though. The speakers on the other hand are surprisingly pretty good and completely hidden. I tried using a pair of external speakers however the built in speakers outperformed them in every way. Speaking of sound, the cooling fan is audible at full throttle, however it is acceptably quiet unlike my previous laptop.
Overall I think that for $800 this is an excellent machine. If you are planning on buying a laptop with great features than this is what you need!
