Summary: Never had a Sony laptop before and so decided to buy one as it came equipped exactly as I wanted my next computer to be. It was a good choice for me. I also like the Sony support for this product... automatic updates and alert messages. Definitely recommend it.
Summary: If you want something more powerful you probably need to move into Alienware or something. For this price it is a great machine. The only thing it was lacking was a fast hard drive. I was able to remedy that problem with a new SSD. Now my boot time is about 7 seconds.
