The Sony Fit line of laptop computers is perfect if you are constantly on the move. The 14-inch model is one of the smallest computers that we have reviewed. Its compact, lightweight design is enough to land this laptop a spot on our review list.
We were delighted by the weight and size of this laptop. The 14-inch model measures 13.31 x 9.28 x 0.87 inches (W x D x H), which is exceptionally small, especially for a 14-inch display. It wouldn’t be called the Fit if this laptop were carrying extra weight around; the lightest model of this laptop weighs less than 5 pounds.
Even though the Sony Fit is truly a mini laptop, Sony didn’t compromise all the power and storage you want in your laptop. You can get an i5 Intel processor or you can upgrade to an Intel i7 that can help boost your processing speeds from 1.8GHz all the way up to 3.1GHz.
The Sony Fit base models only come with 4GB of RAM, which isn’t a very ample amount compared to today’s premium laptop standards. You don’t have to be stuck with 4GB though; you can choose to upgrade to 8GB of RAM, but upgrades will cost you a little more. The same goes with this laptop’s storage. You can get a solid state drive with anywhere from 256GB to 512GB of storage, or you can go with the HDD and get 500GB to 1TB of storage. The Sony Fit is one of the most customizable laptops you are going to find.
This mini laptop boasts 1600 x 900 resolution that is clear and crisp. Coupled with an upgraded Intel HD Graphics 4000 card, you can turn your Fit into a pretty solid multimedia laptop. One downside to the fit is that it only boasts 4.2 hours of battery life, which is isn’t as good as some of the best laptops we reviewed.
The Sony Fit has all of the connectivity options you would expect from a premium laptop including two USB 3.0 ports, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and an HDMI output that allows you to plug your computer into a larger monitor or HD display. The fit also has a media card reader for additional storage and data transfer.
The Sony Fit boasts a small design that is perfect for travel. Though it does not have as much RAM or processing speed as some other computers, this laptop will work perfectly for all your everyday computing needs.
