CNET reviewed Sony VAIO FE570G :

The silver-and-black VAIO FE has a rather minimal design that's similar to that of the VAIO FS series. A few external buttons launch applications and control the volume, but the VAIO FE lacks the dedicated multimedia controls and the high-end speakers found on the Pavilion dv5000t and the Inspiron E1505. We did find, however, that the VAIO FE's speakers emit clear, if not multidimensional, sound. The keyboard and the touch pad are plenty broad, but the mouse buttons are annoyingly small.

LaptopMag reviewed Sony VAIO FE570G :

Boasting one of the brightest 15.4-inch displays we have seen and a slick light-gray-and-black design, the Sony VAIO FE Series is one of the most stylish midsize entertainment notebooks of the year. With Media Center running the show, a decent audio system, and a sharp integrated webcam, this notebook has a lot going for it. We only wish it were faster and offered more memory card slots.
