Sony bags are usually distinguished by their attractive design and good build quality. The Vaio VPCCB2S1E / B is no exception. Design black (or white if you prefer) is a great first impression, and a number of interesting tricks to seduce you. 3D effect was included in the cover and the area under the palm rest, making it look like small square boxes on the surface.

It is a good effect, but also has its drawbacks - each of the surfaces of the laptop are bright plastic surfaces. These seem to magically attract fingerprints and traces of fat, and are soon covered in them. So you should always use a soft microfiber cloth cleaning with you in your bag. Despite this, we really like the 3D effect created by the plastic surfaces. It is particularly notable in the area of ​​palm rest.

Depending on how light strikes the surface, the model under some blue lights. As for build quality, Sony Vaio laptop is not lagging behind its competitors and there can be no cracks or pops. And even display the cover firmly resists being twisted, but it is also relatively thick.

The two hinges holding the screen cover, but only after he has ceased to waver back a few times. It is possible to open the laptop with one hand, but the base is pulled slightly upward with the lid. Sony Vaio basic unit closes. The palm rest barely flex at all, even under high pressure, but the keyboard is not as resistant to pressure, as you hope. In the middle is still quite robust, but the closer you get edges, Spon gets.

It is particularly visible in the keyboard - you can feel the bend itself in normal use. There are two removable bottom that allows you to upgrade your Sony Vaio VPCCB2S1E / B, even if they are only giving access to the RAM and hard drive. The rest of the material kept away from the user.

Sony has equipped the Vaio VPCCB2S1E / B laptop with an Intel Core i5-2410M processor. This is a dual-core processor series Intel before Sandy Bridge. The 2410M is a mid-range processor performance, but with a standard speed of 2.3 GHz the two processor cores have sufficient influence to most applications. And if you have problems, Intel Turbo Boost can give a little boost in performance, overclocked the processor when needed.

If only one processor is the heart of the necessary speed to 2.9 GHz is raised when the two cores are used, the speed can be increased to 2.6 GHz You should, of course, adequate cooling to deal with this. The processor is very frugal, with a TDP of 35 watts, so a 15-inch laptop like the Sony Vaio VPCCB2S1E / B should have no problem cooling the processor.

Graphics, the work is left to the Intel HD 3000 graphics card is integrated into the processor, but dedicated to the model of AMD, the Radeon HD 6630M is accurate. Sometimes, it is still called the ATI Radeon 6630M, but this is not entirely correct.

When AMD bought ATI, has gradually started slowly on behalf of ATI, and so recent 6000-series is now only carry the name of AMD. As the processor, the AMD HD 6630M is a mid-level model. It allows modern games to run smoothly with medium or high settings for details. More recent games especially benefit from the card with DirectX 11 capabilities.

We evaluated the performance of the processor using Cinebench benchmarks, versions 10 and R11.5. In Cinebench R10 rendering a (64 bit) reference, the Sony Vaio VPCCB2S1E / B, were placed in 4631.0 points. Compared to other notebooks that use Intel Core i5-2410M, the Sony portable is highly resistant. There are just some of the same processor for laptops that are faster than the Vaio.

As a pioneer of these is the MSI notebook A6400-S Ci507 (2410M HD Graphics, 3000) and 4670.0 points. It 'only 39 points better. In Cinebench R10 multi-making (64 bit), Sony Vaio, while the results of a comparison to its competitors. With 9827.0 points, is again just a few steps behind the fastest laptop processor 2410M. Acer Aspire 5750G (LX.RAZ0C.008) (2410M GT 540m) cable is a very narrow, 9840.0 points.

To determine the overall system performance of the Sony Vaio VPCCB2S1E / B, we used two PC Mark Vantage and PCMark benchmarking programs 7. In PC Mark Vantage benchmark, the notebook scored 6150.0 points overall. What is the first third of our benchmark results table.

Compared with other laptops that use Intel Core i5-2410M processor, the laptop is not bad, finishing near the top of the middle section. In the same area as the Sony Vaio laptops are like the Dell XPS 17 (840QM, GT445M) for example, which scores slightly higher than the Vaio, with figures at 6153.0 points. The 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro 2011-02 MC721LL / A (2635QM, HD6490M) even finished with 6133.0 points Vaio.

For the PC Mark 07 test, the result does not look so good, but we did not use this reference point for our estimates that for a long time, and so the board is not as populated as a test PC Mark Vantage. Here, the Sony Vaio is lagging behind its competitors in the same processor. And 'the result of 1732.0 points. Portable devices such as the Dell Inspiron 3450 N34506 (2410M, 6630M HD) achieve significantly higher (1911.0 points, Dell).
