January 24th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Sony VAIO  VPCS134GX/S  is a small 13.3 inch notebook powered by Intel core i3-380M, a dual core processor with 2.53 GHz clock frequency. Sony VAIO  VPCS134GX/S  comes with 4 GB of DDR3-1066 memory and 500 GB of Hard disk.  We have found this notebook somewhat more expensive that other larger notebooks with similar specifications. It is hard to see any reason why you will be willing to pay close to $1K, unless the combination of the mobility requirement and Sony brand is in the list of your must have requirements. Starredreviews is a big fan of the Sony’s quality, but unfortunately we do not recommend buying this notebook, which is mainly our price driven decision.

As part of the Sony VAIO  VPCS134GX/S review we present to you the key elements of this notebook, which will help you get a quick idea about this notebook.
