First Look: The Sony Vaio Fit 14 is all-around excellent

1:16 /

With very good performance and battery life and even better design and features for its price, the Fit 14 is an exemplary thin-and-light.

Hey, there. I'm Josh Goldman with CNET. And this is a quick look at the Sony VAIO Fit 14. Now, the Fit is a new laptop line for Sony which combines good looks with solid components for everyday use at reasonable prices. The 14 we tested comes in less than $650 and has a 14-inch 1600x900 resolution capacitive touchscreen, a large back-lit keyboard and a big multi-touch touchpad. Inside, you'll get a Core i5 processor, 8 gigs of memory, integrated graphics and 750 gig hybrid hard drive that-- although it doesn't give you all the performance of a solid-state drive, it does pick up performance some-- like when booting up. In general, it's a good mix of components for everyday use, not power users. And the same goes for battery life which tops out a little more than 4 hours, for its price, we're not complaining though especially since it's still thin at less than an inch relatively lighted about 5 pounds and even has an optical drive. All in all, it's an excellent laptop for the money. I'm Josh Goldman and that's a look at the Sony VAIO Fit 14.
