Vaio SX14 review: A welcome return for the Vaio brand, but sorely overpriced


There's a lot that's good about this super-portable laptop – but it's weighed down by the price

Nice design ; Lots of connectivity ; Seriously lightweight

Way overpriced ; Poor battery life ; Touchpad too small

But it certainly has shortcomings, such as the undersized touchpad and woeful battery life. And the biggest problem by far is that price: it’s just not on to ask £2,249 for a laptop with this specification, no matter how nice it may look and feel, when...

Expensive, especially in the UK ; Poor expansion and repair options ; Moderate FHD screen resolution ; Battery life could be better

Enttäuschendes Comeback


Das leichte Gewicht und randlose Display des Vaio SX14 sprechen für das Notebook. Des Weiteren ist es angenehm, wegen der vielen Anschlüsse nicht auf Adapter angewiesen zu sein. Enttäuschend ist besonders die kurze Akkulaufzeit, aber auch andere Dinge...

sehr leichtes Gehäuse; randloses und mattes Display; viele Anschlüsse; eingebautes LTE-Modul

kleines Touchpad; schlechte Akkulaufzeit; ständig aktiver Lüfter; zu hoher Preis
