Qualifying the Various Forms of Sony Notebook Reviews

Sony notebook reviews can be classified in two ways:  a) Those written by actual owners with long experience with a specific model; and b) Reviews written by product merchants & industry writers who’ve had very limited interaction with the product.  So given the wide reach of Sony mobile electronics, it’s likely that the latter of these reviewers may well have insight limited to simply turning on the gadget and documenting what they see.  

Thus, when searching for insight with buying intentions, then by far, the best Sony notebook reviews come from the general population with day-to-day user's experience.   (Speaking of buying intentions, the internet is a treasure-trove of opportunity for those willing to patiently mine its database.)  And finding a good notebook PC sale can take a little work, but therein rests a key benefit of perusing authentic consumer reviews on the Web.  

Because not only do folks graciously share their likes, dislikes, and concerns about a machine, but they often provide invaluable tips about where to shop as well.  

Before just taking anyone's claim(s) at face value, however, you should do your best to verify the source; because unfortunately, the Net’s full of unscrupulous actors who may know nothing about which they write.  That’s why we recommend that you read entries on sites – such as Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart reviews – where actual purchases are usually confirmed.

Why so few Sony Notebook Reviews Lately?

A recurring question we’ve received over the past several months pertains to why there aren’t more product reviews of Sony laptops. Some folks have even suggested that they may be searching wrong, given how the likes of CNET, Consumer Reports, and other reliable sources have not added anything in a while.  Well, the short answer to that is because Sony mobile electronics discontinued most of its notebook line in 2014.  

The Sony Vaio laptop, however, continues to be sold under the Z model and has been marketed heavily to an artist-centric demographic.  (Perhaps the other concept units weren’t meeting the brand’s goals and/or Sony wanted to devote more resources to the king-of-the-gaming-hill:  PlayStation.)  This doesn’t mean that there aren't tons of Sony laptop computers still in circulation, as the company remains committed to honoring warranty claims and repairs.  

Further, the discontinuation of the legacy notebook models is another reason why subscribing to the newsletters and RSS feeds of deal shopping sites is good practice, since out-of-production merchandise is usually sold at a discount.  And as noted previously, evergreen websites around which provide a forum for consumer testimony will always be charitable sources of Sony notebook reviews, so valid information will continue to be available for outdated technologies.  

Our Take at Sony Notebook Reviews: The Old and the New

Early iterations of the Sony Vaio notebook computer presented a middle-tier machine, typically-sized at a 15-inch dimension.  After the Vaio 15 a smaller, almost tablet-like model was designed, though it struggled to compete with some of the giants of the PC landscape.  (They were aptly referred to in Sony notebook reviews as 13 notebooks per the 13” screen it came with.)  

An Intel Ivy Bridge processor, built-in webcam, and a decent sound card are found in the Vaio E Series.  Even back then (2012) with its initial foray into the notebook scene, Sony placed a large bet on a relatively small niche of users.  The Vaio E Series came preloaded with a slew of editing and rich media software, allowing users to both create and share their work.  And to this day, the new Sony Vaio Z model remains a leading creative notebook, though it has somewhat broadened its appeal to the professional class in general.

What’s more is that the Vaio Z serves well as a draft notebook, thanks to its digital-pen-enabled touchscreen.  The Vaio Z is also fairly versatile, connecting painlessly to high-end network printers, as well as your average cheap computer peripherals.   

So for the millions of satisfied customers who have authored glowing Sony notebook reviews, it’s good to know that the brand will have at least one model on the market for the time being.  

The Vaio Z is a fun and powerful machine, capable of professional multimedia creation and editing.  And for anyone looking to buy one of the earlier models, we hope that this – along with the many other Sony notebook reviews – will help in your quest for more info.
