Excerpt: Advertisements are a definite cause for buying a product. When I was surfing television I watched advertising Sony Viao P. The Advertisement does influence me. I go to the nearest Viao retailer and booked for one.
Excerpt: Although I am in love with Macbook, I decided to purchase another laptop because I wanted something small when I have emergency travels. It is nice to grab something with you palm and head out to wherever you will go.
Summary: The previous reviews were more negative about Windows 8 than the laptop, so I bought it after advice from techy colleagues at work. It is great, fits in my handbag and is not very heavy. The screen is visually good, touch screen so - so; not really used to using yet but is useful sometimes on the internet as the pages freeze and using the screen is better. The internet dropped out completely and I couldn't even hard wire in with the USB / ethernet adaptor??
Summary: First off, I agree with the previous reviewer that the Windows 8 touchscreen functionality isn't great. My real problem though was a dodgy WiFi connection. When I Googled, I found that 100s of other people had suffered the same problem with Vaio Pro laptops and that there is no real solution. The laptop went off to Sony for a few days, and was returned saying there was nothing wrong with it and that they were unaware of any issue.

Summary: The laptop runs reasonably quickly has a decent screen and all in all its a decent piece of hardware. The main problem is Windows 8. The touchscreen would seem to be Windows 8 saviour but in practice it doesn't really work all that well. The touchscreen seems to work great but Windows 8 isn't the right operating system to be using it with unfortunately.
Summary: This is a netbook with a lot of bad press. Sony charged too much for it and Vista rendered it unusuable, literally. However, both these problems have been alleviated of late, which is why I bought one. The price has fallen, plus there's £150 cashback at the moment, plus a free Windows 7 uprgrade, and if you can;t stand Vista in the meantime you can now easily downgrade to XP, as I did the moment I got hold of my Vaio P.
Pros: Small, light, super screen and keyboard, no noisy fan, doesn't get hot
Cons: Comes with useless Vista and Sony bloat, weak performance of GMA500 chipset
Overall this is a good netbook, however it is not worth the price they are asking for.

Excerpt: This Sony Vaio is a...Pretty piece of equipment. It is designed to look good, I remember the first time I saw it I thought Wow, if it works as well as it looks its worth the price tag. I'm sad to say that it doesn't and it certainly wasn't worth the £999 it cost at the time, it still isn't worth the £793 that is displayed as the best price that dooyoo can find.
Conclusion: ноут отличный, но ничего не видно на эране. Мало того, что он маленький, так еще и разрешение большое. Но клавиатура довольно удобная, куча модемов для коммуникаций. Проц тормознутый, но работать на нем можно и в нете сидеть, к тому же если поставить ХР то будет легче.
Conclusion: а что же вы хотите от такого крошки? Конечно будет медленным… зато его в любую сумку всунул и с ним куда угодно. При этом у него есть все, чтобы подключиться к глобальной сети в этом где-угодно. Внешне просто обалденно выглядит, монитор классный, клава очень удобная хотя он и маленький. А на счет работоспособности, так его хватает и для МСОфиса, и для инета, и видео с фото посмотреть можно, и текст очень удобно читать – можно использовать как электронную книгу.
