The Sony Vaio E series, seems to tick all my boxes in being stylish, well-made (any comments here?) and affordable. However, I have some reservations:

1. Will the screen will be too small for full HD?
2. Will the graphics card (ATI HD5650 - 1GB) be powerful enough full HD?
3. Will the temperature remain cool?
4. There's no USB 3.0
5. I've not seen many reviews about the E series on the web

Thanks for reading,

These models feature an ALPS manufactured touchpad. Apart from being very inaccurate when compared to Synaptics, the touchpad area is heating up like anything on these machines, i.e. the whole E series. My cousin got one, and is regretting.
