Sony also includes an innovative technology called TransferJet, which allows users to move photos from select cameras by Sony Vaio VPCF122FXB placing them on the laptop's palm rest albeit with added cost and time.


This multimedia machine has some drawbacks, but when it comes to performance, Sony Vaio VPCF122FXB F Series is one of the best Core i7 notebooks around.

After 15 minutes of streaming a Hulu video at full screen, we measured temperatures of 86 degrees Fahrenheit on the underside of the notebook, 97 degrees in the center of the keyboard, and 98 degrees Sony Vaio VPCF122FXB the touchpad. While temperatures in the 90s are warm, we don't become concerned until they break degrees.

Sony got the touchpad-and-buttons combo right. The pad, which measures a comfy 2.

The trackpad also supports multitouch gestures, Sony Vaio VPCF122FXB as pinching and zooming. Getting the hang Sony Vaio VPCF122FXB these motions took a few tries, partly because the touchpad isn't quite large enough to comfortably use two fingers at once. Also, we found that for gestures such as zooming, we had to apply a certain amount of pressure on the pad, and move our fingers at a certain speed.

The speakers, located above the keyboard, produced surprisingly tinny sound; when we streamed various Motown songs from Slacker, the bass notes were pretty weak.
