The bottom panel indicates Sony’s principle of not letting the user tinker with the notebook’s internals.
You have to remove the whole bottom panel to access the components. Well, you may not actually need this, but the improper placement of the vent opening is a small problem.
If you feel that the notebook’s interface ports are not enough or if you work in your office and don’t want to attach the cables all the time, connect a docking station to the connector that is hidden under a movable shutter:
The battery’s parameters and size are typical enough:
The power adapter is smaller than those included with other notebooks tested in this review:
Overall, this is one of the best notebooks in its class which just cannot leave you disappointed. You get an ideally balanced computer capable of running any office application. Add also that the world-famous VAIO logotype has long become a kind of status indicator, something which other brands can only hope to achieve. In a rating of brands, Sony stands right after IBM, but IBM notebooks are now manufactured by another, China-based company and are inferior to Sony’s in the quality of the display. So, if you need a notebook that would tell everyone of your high status, there’s not much choice.
Moreover, the VGN-FJ1SR notebook is priced rather modestly for a Sony product, so I personally have my favorite among the ten notebooks presented to you in this review and my opinion may only change after I’ve checked them in practical tests.
