Today we are going to look at two Sony VAIO models from the SZ series: VAIO VGN-SZ1HRP/B and VAIO VGN-SZ1XRP/C, which have come as a replacement to the older S series. These two models resemble one another visually, but there is a price difference of almost $500 US between them. In this review we are going to find out how the similar appearance conceals great differences in the “tempers” of these two notebooks.
But how much power does this performance growth require? Let’s check it out.
Well, the battery life isn’t too much shorter when the discrete graphics core is activated (but the notebooks couldn’t last for more than 3 hours in the Classic mode). So, the owner of a VAIO VGN-SZ1HRP/B or a VAIO VGN-SZ1XRP/C can choose between extra half an hour of battery life or higher performance in 3D applications.
Here are the battery discharge diagrams for the different operation modes:
