Sony VAIO Y (YB)

  |   by NotebookReview Staff

The team at Sony has completely reinvented the VAIO Y notebook with some help from AMD. The new Sony VAIO Y (technically called the “VAIO YB”) is Sony’s first laptop to feature the new AMD E-350 processor and graphics. This 11-inch laptop is more expensive than a typical netbook but offers significantly better performance. If you need an lightweight travel laptop with enough power for multimedia fun this might be the netbook alternative for you.

  • Pros

    • Better performance than a typical netbook
    • Small and light
    • Attractive design


  • Cons

    • More expensive than competitors
    • Less than expected battery life
    • Small keyboard keys

Quick Take

A good ultraportable laptop with less-than-stellar battery life.
