You need to upgrade the RAM
by Subh on 2013-07-31
I have been using this laptop from last 4 months.It comes preloaded with Windows 8 64 bit. All in all it is a good laptop,but the only goof up Sony has done is providing a meager 2GB RAM with it. Win 8 64 bit needs 2GB bare minimum. This means there is no left out memory for other programs to run. So if planning to buy this laptop , please make sure you spend another 2k to upgrade it to 4GB (at the least) to get anything from this machine.Otherwise it will be a drag .
Things I liked :
1. Looks very good and expensive , even though it is not ;-)
2. Light weight (though not very light)
3. Excellent hardware at this price point(3rd Gen I3 2.5ghz ,Intel® HD Graphics 4000 )
4. Integrated web cam
5. Loud and clear sound
Things I did not like
1. Keyboard feels cheaper
2. Touch pad is unreliable (better buy a mouse and use )
3. very bad viewing angles on the LCD monitor
4. Lot of unnecessary bloatware from Sony inc.
5. Expensive accessories
But as I said , given the price , overall it is a good package.

Battery Backup is good.
Some of the features like battery saver options from vaio is good to have in a lappy.
Well i bought before 3 weeks and no hiccups until now.
Rapid Wake + Eco: quick resume gives some awesome plus to this lappy.
Overall am happy with it guyz!!!!

This lap is really good in look and performance. Wake up time is really awesome. If its comes with scratch resist body.it will become fabulous. If you are looking for a budget value lap, go on with Vaio e14133.

i know its specification. but with the help of that reviews i baught it. its has nyc colour and shape to manipulate u, but plz concentrate in the technical specification, its lil poor. yea i only baught it for its battery life. it has the awesome battery life. Yea it has only 2 GB of RAM so its lil slow. even VAIO has lots of own apps with the laptop. so its lil disappointing to me because its make my lapy more small. bcos i also dont use that sony products so its 3/5 according to me.
Good product...lacks ram

Good looking laptop....good battery backup....but certainly lacks ram (need to spend 2.5K for 4gb ram upgrade)...good sound quality...upgraded the warranty for another 2 years by spending 2.5K.

I did not buy this one from flipcart but from a local retailer since it was not available for delivery in Meerut.
While using it for the first time display went off.. The customer care of Sony is so useless that they wont visit your place for days or even weeks even you keep on giving them infinite no of reminders.
I would say rather go for Dell - good product and customer service

First sony laptop I didn't like. Very fragile, cannot use it rough, windows 8 is horrible for sure, sound output is very low, had windows 7 loaded on this finally and it crashed twice..not a great model..
Sony VAIO E series Display and Sound very poor
by LeoRvx on 2013-06-26
I recently got a Sony E series lapotop with 1513 series(not on flipkart),It has lot of new features like HD Exmor Web camera,USB 3.0 support,Muliti touch touchpad,Gesture Contorl of hand movements through webcam,bluetooth 4.0,offline charging for mobile devices through USB port ,when the laptop is swtiched off,Stylish looking shape with good battery life.I was overwhelmed by the looks and features,BUT after using for a while The Display and Sound are not Satisfactory, The Display(VAIO display)/mfg by LG, does not show bright colors,and the viewing angles are not good,i have to push the screen back for a certain angle to make a clear view,this was a problem in old laptops, and the colors are not bright,the blacks are not good.(all updated drivers installed). The Other thing is Sound, sony says some xLOUD,clear phase technology is the new and latest technology,but i am not at all satisfied with the sound quality even with full volume,the sound is just like some cheap speakers with some distortion, i see many laptops with clear and sensitive speakers ,where i can hear the music/skype video calls even with low volume.Sony is a brand name lacking in Basic features. now i lost credibility in SONY, i will not Recomment Sony VAIO to anyone. I prefer only DELL laptops (samsung display,sensitive crystal clear sound by waves Maxx audio). Toshiba is also not recommended as it has poor web camera and poor sound quality speakers.
