Sony Vaio SVE14A35CXH

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.

  1. really nice laptop.had to reset several times. had to replace hard drive. the touchpad causes constant problems. its unusable even right now. replaced touch screen and touchpad a year ago.looks like ill need another touchpad again. laptop costed too much to throw away. otherwise I really like it.

    • Neilson Shepard again and well its 2016 and it’s broke again, the cpu starts working up to 30% when I go on line and a few seconds later it says not responding and the cpu goes down to 2% to 4% and it doesn’t recover. after the restart it does the same thing…for 2 days now it’s not usable. I had upgraded to a 1TB HD about a year ago, I wonder if its failed. I will repair it again because this laptop is awesome. I operate a telescope remotely with wifi as well as my Canon camera and a guide camera and software to guide my telescope with wifi . I image long exposures and even do some editing on my astronomy images while another picture is imaging a long exposure picture controlled with wifi. This laptop does all that plus goes on line doing emails all at the same it has a touch screen..and it’s fast all the time using the windows 10 upgrade. I use it all day every day researching and stacking images and late into the night. I love this laptop it can do so many things at the same time fast…I hope I can fix it….

    • No you can’t, but that’s the case with virtually all consumer notebooks, except some rare custom-built gaming laptop PCs.

  2. Not Happy and with this Sony laptop! I have had to reset it several times because it locked up and will not restart. The touchpad is not user friendly, so I have to use a mouse to get work done in a timely manner.

  3. Very nice laptop. This is my second Sony and it works beautifully. If you’re hesitating about purchasing it, I wouldn’t. However, my only complaint is that the mouse is a little touchy. Aside from that, it is a very nice device.
