The Sony Vaio SVE14A35CXH 14-inch touch-screen laptop with an Intel Core i5 processor, integrated graphics, 6GB of system memory, a 750GB hard disk, and a price of about $750, is a cheaper configuration than the 950-dollar SVE14A27CXH with an i7 chip, dedicated graphics, 8GB RAM, and a 1TB HDD.
The SVE14A35CXH will save you $200 bucks, but it won’t have such a powerful computing and gaming potential as the latter. However, the included Core i5-3230M is on the top of mid-range processor hierarchy and is good for daily tasks and multimedia consumption and creation.
Another positive side, at least judging from the official specifications, is a longer batter life on the SVE14A35CXH. It lasts “up to six hours”, whereas the SVE14A27CXH lasts significantly less – up to 4:45 hours, probably due to a more power hungry CPU and dedicated video card.
Overall, the Sony Vaio SVE14A35CXH is an excelent laptop, not only because of the touchscreen display, but also thanks to a high 1600×900 resolution for a 14″ screen, backlight keyboard, and Bluetooth.
