Summary: There are several complaints about fan noise but it is worth mentioning that you do want the fan running to keep the heat down and that is going to result in noise on any computer. The noise is really only in the high performance setting and you dont need that setting to browse the internet or watch movies or frankly even doing photo editing.
I was very surprised with this great laptop by Sony

Summary: My first impression was how light is this laptop, it is perfect for carrying wherever you go. I bought it for my brother and he needed something light and powerful enough for his work . Well, I should say it is way over what he needs with this second generation i5 core ( he works as a marketing manager and basically dealing with tons of emails and huge customer's database), huge storage capacity, great video card and not at last the 1920x1080 HD resolution create amazing...
Summary: This laptop is a wonderful laptop, after putting a 256GB SSD inside my laptop, it runs like a dream, i installed the drivers from the sony website, took me less than 5 minutes, not to mention the lovely vaio update is amazing, it updates the files for you in a flash. This is by far one of the best laptop i have ever used, i have used: Envy 15 and before envy 15 i used Dell XPS 15 and XPS 15z, vaio is definnately a win win, i also did a few test to help you guys, i ran...
Summary: This laptop is great! Probably has one of the best displays out there (1920x1080). However, it is matte, so if you looking for a super glossy screen, this device is not for you. If you have a background in Mac or an avid Mac user...and you just started using this computer, just install the "TwoFingerScroll" program available at Google Code. Make sure the settings are correct (set "Scroll Mode" as "Smart") and wholla! This Synaptics-based (not Alps!
Summary: This wonderful laptop is a masterpiece almost without flaw. It is a beautiful design with its squared-off platinum silver case and silver color throughout. It is streamlined with an extraordinarily thin profile, and incredibly light weight -- a truly portable laptop with a large screen. It is full-HD (1080P) to better enjoy the blu-ray player. The combination renders a great picture -- bright and clear. It is super fast with an i5 CPU.
Summary: This is a great laptop, and the price at Amazon is a steal in relation to the specs. The things I like are: 1) Weight of only 4.4 lbs. vs about 6 lbs for most 15" laptops. 2) Battery life of about 5 hours, or about 12 hours with optional sheet battery (but that brings it to 5.7 lbs). 3) Less than 1 inch thick. 4) Intel WiDi included so you can watch wirelessly on your TV if you buy the TV box. 5) Backlit keyboard.
Best-in-class display is the defining "halo" feature for an excellent laptop

Summary: I have had this for two weeks now and feel I finally have found a keeper. (I am picky with laptops -- have bought and returned two other laptops this year before settling on this one as my fullsize option.) The overriding pro here is the incredible screen/display -- a combination of the high resolution as well as the perfectly tuned contrast, make this supremely comfortable to stare at for hours.
Summary: I've had this laptop for about a week now and I couldn't be happier with it. Pros: 1. Gorgeous 15.5" LCD screen. It's got great resolution, brilliant colors, and it's very bright. The 15.5" screen may not be huge, but there is so much workspace because the resolution is so impressive. Great viewing angles as well. 2. Light but sturdy chasis.
Summary: Notebook is very fast and silent. Construction is robust, battery lasts long. Display is amazing and I like the back-light keyboard. Simply the hardware is perfect. I was surprised that I can control my Sony Television via some pre-installed software. But this is the only thing that I don't like -- there is a lot software pre-installed. But you can easily remove it, of course. I would recommend this laptop to my friends, because I am fully satisfied. Thanks Sony!
