If function with cellfun (i.e. vectorized code instead of ridiculously slow loop).

Hello everyone. I am new to matlab and really try to optimize my code since it takes to much time to run. I don't really understand the concept behind cellfun yet. If we take the following example:
I would have no idea how to write it in vectorized code since I have to go through every cells and then through every lines of each cell.
So is it possible to write it in vectorized code and if yes can anyone help me with that ?

You're using 2D indexing {row, col} with one of the dimension looking like it's always 1 as opposed to linear indexing {idx}. Is your data actually 2D or 1D?
The difference in speed between the two is negligible but I personally find it confusing when people use 2D indexing with 1D data. Plus, this add a hidden assumption that the cell array is a row vector and the content of each cell is a column vector, whereas with linear indexing the code works regardless of the direction of the vector.
