Summary: Aweful right from the start. Bought it new at Best Buy cause the price was right and it was a special. Nothing but troubles with it from day one. Within 15 months , I put an additional $500 into the thing and nothing helped its operation. Hard drive went out, the keypad wouldnt always print letters, stalled operation , couldnt CCP half the time, super slow in connecting , one of the most frustrating things ive ever owned hands down.
Summary: I bought this laptop a year back... it was too good in performance and clarity. No doubt it is sony product...
My CD drive started giving issue... not able to write anything, but working fine if I am trying to watch any movie. I contacted Sony CustomerCare and they are asking me to pay $300 to replace the Drive.
I checked the internet, there are lot of people complaining about the Drive... but sony not accepting the "fault" in the Drive... THINK BEFORE BUY!!!
Summary: I bought this laptop off-the-shelf when my old laptop's hinges broke. I'm an IT guy - I have used lots of laptops, by lots of manufacturers, and this is hands-down the worst I've encountered.
Contrary to what some reviewers have said, Sony's were not the most expensive laptops; in fact, I talked myself into buying this one based largely on the price. That was a mistake, for the reasons that follow.
Summary: I have had this notebook for over a year; the thing is bullet-proof. I have dropped it which required replacing the harddrive, which I did myself, but it fired right back up. I couldn't be happier in spite of this mishap. This Sony has an awesome display. Also, I have noticed that the Sony notebooks come with so many outstanding standard Sony-exclusive programs (which I actually use, and that would have cost me $100s extra if I bought them).
Summary: I don't know if it is the crippling Windows Vista or the Sony Vaio hardware (despite it's high specs), but this is a VERY slow computer and it gets worse as you use it. Sometimes it takes minutes for applications to operate... they run on "not working" mode with that stupid circle.... and I got a bonus... windows vista stopped working and it won't start now. And bingo, Vaio doesn't provide you with any recovery CD... and the recovery software doesn't work at all...
Summary: Get a Laptop for Christmas - Only $5
It would be madness to miss this unique opportunity to get a top of the range Macbook or Sony Vaio laptop for just $5 - yes, that's right - five bucks!

Too good to be true? Certainly not......
Summary: The computer I received was in excellent shape and runs very well. The only glich is that the operating system listed in the drop down description box did not match the operating system listed when you actually selected the computer. Other than this, I am very satisfied with the product and service thus far.
Summary: The product is good But I get it used the batery doesn't get charge more then 30 minutes some program I am not avaliable to use because the product key is not good. I did not returned because I need it. But for sure I am not buy any more Factory Reconditioned.
