Summary: it has 8 cores (logical). Very fast. I added 512gb ssd and windows 7 boots in 5 seconds. windows 2008 server boots in 8 seconds with sql server 2008. One problem I faced was that when I tried install Windows 7 thru DVD drive, installation was asking for driver and unable to continue the installation. Then I used USB to install the OS. This may be the reason someone return this machine, but brought this machine from amazon warehouse. well worth for the Money.
Summary: This is a great computer and I learnt to use the key board pretty fast and moreso, it is amazingly fast, coming from a mac background for the past twenty years. I decided to go PC after my mac book pro died. Buy this unit it will give you a good experience. Get the anti virus also.
Summary: The product description says 750 GB hard drive. The actual laptop has 640 Gb. Other than this small ripoff everything else seems OK. We have just received it, so I may write an update on the performance, etc. later.
Sony VAIO E Series SVE1511M1E: Simple, elegant and very powerful...
11 August 2013
Summary: Wow is all i can say for a laptop of this quality to last for so long. So far this laptop has gotten me through some tough times over the past few years and even though technology around me is still advancing my vaio still manages to keep up. I have the silver coloured version of this laptop. Advantages of this laptop include its ability to act as a cheap gaming console.
Pros: Easy to transport, Slim and lightweight, Can be used as a gaming PC
Summary: I must admit I am a Vaio fan and this has its good points with a couple of not so good. Firstly it's fast and excellent for streaming video. Excellent HD screen! The sound is much better than my wifes earlier I3 model and I listen to music a lot on it. The lit keyboard is great for working in low light as you can make out every key.
Summary: I'm not a techno wizard, but I believe this Sony Vaio has an excellent spec. I love its looks, and as a touch typist I appreciate the keyboard being white not black and having separate keys. The one drawback is its sensitivity. I lose stuff because skimming over the keys moves emails, sentences etc all over the place.
Summary: I purchased the Laptop to replace a 17 Inch Toshiba Satalite 6 months old unfortunately it was not suitable for travelling only as a desktop replacement due to airport hasle also very poor battery life. The Sony has proved a great purchase, I knew it would be as I bought one for my wife and was always jealous Keyboard superb,Battery life good and no annoying adverts inbuilt to renew software after trial periods Highly recommend sony products.
