Summary: This computer is fine for what I need it for, but it also has a lot of stuff on it that I don't use or ever will, it is far too complicated for me to bother with. Vaio care isn't easy to use, it says you have updates, click here, when I do, it says, no updates available! Also the Vaio Gateway dropdown thing at the top annoys me as whenever my cursor goes anywhere near it it drops down and simply gets in the way! The mousepad is the worst thing about it for me.
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.
Summary: The laptop parcle was quite heavy, the laptop looks just the same elegant way as the pictures. However, the CD ROM is set with region limitions which i did not see from the information provided by the seller or the manufacturer.
Summary: Pros: - Great looking laptop, far superior in appearance to anything in this price bracket - Reasonably lightweight, comfortable to hold and fantastic build quality that you'd expect from Sony - Perfect keyboard - beautifully spaced, making typing really easy. Inclusion of a numberpad is welcome.
Summary: There is no doubt that the latest Sony to carry the Vaio name is a good looking machine, but does it perform as smartly as it looks? Well for my money, yes it does. The i5 processor is a good one, and is pretty quick at doing most tasks, even with quite intensive graphics applications and watching online TV. BBC iPlayer is superb, and the sound quality is actually pretty decent for a laptop.
