Summary: I've owned this laptop for more than a year and even now it's hard to find such a well built and lightweight one.The matte-screen is absolutely stunning - crisp and clear (1920 x 1080). 2 months after I bought it, replaced the hard drive with a solid state 256gb OCZ Octane, installed customized bios that boost the Nvidia 640M LE performance by almost 50%. I was able to play Battlefield 2 and other 3d intensive games in full hd without any issues!
Summary: I wanted to buy a new laptop because of a new expansion pack coming out for the Sims 3. My previous laptop was from 2007 and so it was obviously time to get a new laptop. For some reason I found myself drawn to this laptop. It met my computer specifications that I had on my search. Correct graphics card, fast, and light. I love this laptop! The graphics are extremely clear. There is nothing wrong with the sound. It sounds like sound would on any laptop.

Summary: I purchased the Sony Vaios S on 7-29-2012 directly from the Sony website. It stopped working 2 months later. No blue screen just dead. I called Tech support. They walked me through the normal tests and then offered to send me a box to ship it to their repair depot or drive in to one of their stores. I chose the latter. Here it is two weeks later and they have no answer as to when they can get my laptop back to me.
Sound isn't sort bad--it's bad -- reds are kinda orange

Summary: The machine is as fast as any other in this price range and with this processor and memory. And a bit lighter and thinner than many in its price range. Lots of Sony add-on sotware doo-dads that most folks will never use. Sound isn't sort bad--it's bad -- and the display, while crisp has a color shift: reds are kinda orange. The camera is a little less than okay. I recommend getting an external camera if you plan to skype with this PC.
