Sony EG3 Series VPCEG3PFX/W Laptop Review

Frustrates me sometimes that being a computer science student, my friends & family tend to associate that to being their personal computer technician, who installs and recommends anti-viruses and all other software to them. The brighter side of it is that I frequently get to play with new computers. Last week i happened to lay my hands on a Sony EG3 Series VPCEG3PFX/W (for my anti-virus installation duties). The laptop is pretty awesome i must admit.

Sony EG3 Exterior Design

I found the Sony EG3 Series VPCEG3PFX/W to be quite stylish. It's coated with a diamond pattern both on the outside and inside with a layer of skin that will not leave those annoying fingerprints (most people, me included hate having to wipe them off) on it. Its size is approximately 13.6 x 9.4 x 1.36 inches and weighs 3.65 pounds which is quite light compared to the average 14 inch laptop which makes it quite the traveling partner. Its textured mouse pad makes it easier to handle and scroll though pages. Its keyboard is isolated, this gives you the experience of using a larger computer on a much smaller carbon footprint.

The Sony EG3 Features
  1. A 14-inch LED-backlit display (1366 x 768) pixels with quite the exceptional brightness.
  2. The Sony EG3 is powered by a Second Generation 2.2 GHz Intel Pentium dual-core processor B960 which in combination with its powerful Intel graphics card offers you the convenience to perform daily multiple tasks, while at the same time providing you with a superb medium of entertainment on both online and offline platforms.
  3. It has a 4 GB of installed RAM DDR3 (1333 MHz, up to 8 GB) - and 640 GB SATA hard drive (5400 RPM) which provides you with vast storage space for all your offline and online computer needs.
  4. It has a built-in web camera that offers better image capture which will enhance all your video-chats, this is because the camera comes with face tracking technology that automatically focuses on your face, when you are moving thus allowing the computer to lock the brightness of your face.
  5. The Sony EG3 has quite the battery life (7.50 hours) and comes with a HDMI port to connect to your big screen HDTV and standard 4x USB 2.0 ports
  6. It has a pretty solid built-in stereo speakers which are loud enough and provide a some bass for your movie screenings

Environmental Specifications
I love the environment, I also don't want my children's children living in space ships the way most Hollywood Sci-Fi project the future to be, I am thus pleased to tell you that The Sony Eg3  meets the energy star 5.0 specifications for reduced energy consumption compared to the required federal status. Other environmental specifications met include Gold EPEAT for reducing environmental impact and the PC is RoHS is compliant (meets the restructured uses of lead, mercury and certain other hazardous substances). 

VAIO Software Extras
One thing that I have rarely cared much for which is usually a plus to most computer users who don't have the time or knowledge to maintain their computers is the software extras for tune ups and maintenance provided by Sony. The Sony EG3 comes with an easy to use VAIO Care Software that will tune up your PC (this ensures that it is running at its best), update (this ensures your computer security), troubleshoot (this tries to help solve internal PC errors) and back-up your PC with just a few clicks.

After Sales Services
Sony will provide you with support should you encounter any problems with your computer. They will provide in home service when possible. You can easily chat them up on phone. They also have an online support website with access to drivers software updates FAQs, user forums and more.
