One of the recently-released laptops today is the Sony VAIO E Series SVE14A1HFXBC, which was launched last June 13, 2012. This is a especially-designed mobile computer that is built for utmost home entertainment and bundled with a top-notch DJ headphone to further enhance the enjoyment of its use.
While this laptop was mainly engineered to provide maximum entertainment at home through listening to top-quality music and watching high-definition movies, this review is done to assess if this laptop is up for gaming. Keep in mind that in order to launch new generation games, higher system specifications may be required compared to simply watching movies and listening to music.
In this case, speed is a critical aspect to consider, especially when playing action-packed games like the Modern Warfare 3. When it comes to speed, the Sony VAIO E series Boomdizzle is fully-armed with a powerful Intel Core i5 2.5GHz processor, which is next to the top-of-the-line Core i7.
This is already a great platform that has the power to launch various applications at high speed. But what makes it even more powerful is the DRAM RAM space of 8GB. This is way beyond the required RAM space of even the most demanding games in the market nowadays, and even for games scheduled to be launched in the next couple of months.
The tandem of Intel Core i5 with 8GB of DRAM RAM memory space is always enough to guarantee that this laptop is truly up for heavy gaming. What is even more interesting is that RAM is upgradable up to 16GB.
But this is only in retrospect to speed, which is just one aspect of playing games. The other aspect is the quality of the video card. This feature largely influences the quality of the graphics, which is crucial in watching movies and playing games.
No matter how great the game is, but if your laptop is not able to present the full potential of the game in its maximum graphics presentation, then your gaming entertainment is not fully optimized. In order to enjoy the optimum quality of the games in terms of graphics, make sure that the video card meets the required system specs.
Traditional games normally need minimal video card requirement of about 512MB. With this video card onboard, you can easily play Scrabble, chess, and other standard games. But if your preferred games are the new-generation types that are relatively demanding in system requirements, then go for laptops with state-of-the-art video cards.
The Sony VAIO E Series SVE14A1HFXBC laptop is bundled with Intel HD graphics 4000 that provides integrated solution for graphics. This is highly capable of running demanding games that require Direct X11. RAM memory is shared with the integrated 8GB DDR RAM, giving it ample graphics space for maximum performance during games.
Other notable features of this model of Sony VAOI are as follows:
- G-Sensor shock protection technology
- Impressive compact sound system powered by Dolby Home Theater v4 technology
- Backlit keyboard more efficient gaming at night time
- 750GB of hard disk memory
- Licensed 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium
- Battery life of up to 6 hours under normal use
Having all the above features bundled in one laptop for only about $900 is already a good bargain; and you are also better assured that the E Series SVE14A1HFXBC of Sony VAIO is truly one of the best gaming laptops today.
