11.6-inch Sony Vaio E (E11115EG) - Solid budget ultraportable

Together with the 11.6-inch Sony Vaio T11 Ultrabook, Sony launched a low cost 11.6-inch ultraportable in the Sony Vaio E11115EG. At 1.25-inches at the thickest point and weighing at 3.32 poinds, the Sony Vaio E11115EG is a reasonably portable package which retails at just Php23,990. 

This looks like a replacement for the Sony Vaio YB. Instead of the AMD E-450 Accelerated Processing Unit you find in similarly priced 11.6-inch budget ultraportables, you have the AMD E2-1800 Accelerated Processor. The AMD E2-1800 Accelerated Processor which has a dual core 1.7 GHz processor and AMD Radeon HD 7340 graphics is just a bit faster than the older AMD E-450. Good enough for basic office work, like typing documents and preparing spreadsheets and presentations, and web browsing. It will play full HD video, and even a bit of 3D gaming. 

What makes the Sony Vaio E11115EG interesting is it adds a USB 3.0 port, which is now becoming standard on new laptops, but is not all that common with laptops available on the shelves. It also has all the typical connectivity options you expect, including WiFi, Bluetooth and an HDMI port.

Other than that, the Sony Vaio E11115EG comes has the typical 1366 x 768 screen resolution, 2 GB of RAM, a 320 GB hard drive, a 4000 mAh battery and Windows 7 Home Basic (64-bit) which is just par for the course. Upgrading the RAM to 4GB would be a worthwhile additional expense.

Designed to appeal to a younger crowd, the Sony Vaio E11115EG also comes in white and pink.
