Sony Vaio PCG-5J2L
Beside the major powers on the notebook market, a lot of manufacturers tried to release quality laptops to capture the attention of the general public. One of these companies is Sony. Everyone knows Sony, it is a major manufacturer of electronics for a long time now, and we have all seen Sony products in shops. Let us have a look at a Sony notebook and determine if it is as good as the company wants it to be. Meet the Sony Vaio PCG-5J2L.
There can be no doubt that Sony wanted this notebook to look good and captivating. By using the light colors, Sony gave a certain sporty and modern feeling to the laptop. On the first look it is definitely a nice designed machine. The bright white color makes the notebook literally shine and distinguish itself in a normal environment. The keyboard is small, but we have seen keyboards this size and they are not hard to use. The key question is if it lasts. Many keyboards have problems over time and they need to be replaced due to overuse. It remains to be seen how long this one lasts. The touch pad is a bit small, which can be compensated with increased mouse sensitivity, but unfortunately this decreases accuracy and as such, usage speed.
The Sony Vaio PCG-5J2L was built to impress. It is powered by an Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo processor, which has a clock speed of 2 GHz. The speed of the processor is not bad, we have seen plenty weaker units, and Intel is reliable no matter what laptop uses it. A common feature can be observed here, the default 2 GB of Random Access Memory can be upgraded to a maximum supported 4 GB, and while the upgrade increases speed, it does not improve that much on the notebook’s speed so we do not see the reason to spend more money on it. Storage space is excellent however, 200 GB of free space awaits your collections and files. The graphics are provided by an integrated Intel GMA X3100 graphics chip, which has up to 356.0 MB of shared graphics memory. The small 14.1 inch widescreen display has a good 1280 x 800 native resolution depth.
This notebook has pretty average features, but for this money it may worth buying it.
