  • Summary: Hi This laptop is great while it lasts, 3 or 4 years ago I bought this expecting the best, at first all worked great fantastic picture, great machine... BUT... about a year into its life, on a few startups, I would just get a blank screen. I thought nothing of it as upon restart all was ok. at about year 2 the HDMI stopped working. I assumed it was due to poor use and put it down to the socket. Now the Graphics chip has fauled completely.
  • Pros: Works well while it lasts!!!
  • Cons: Inherantly faulty (ALL OF THEM)

  • Summary: I do like the computer, only for as i mentioned the coating coming off from front,it seems to be a really bad design fault, that i am taken up at the moment with Sony.
  • Pros: Nice size screen, good graphics, like the built in cam. Sony very helpful if you need to know something.
  • Cons: Its heavy. I've had mine for six months had to send it back for repair twice for the same thing with in seven weeks of first repair, the black coating keeps on peeling off where the wi-fi and bluetooth lights are, im not very happy at the moment as this computer is not at all cheap, im in the process of trying to get my money back or an exchange, has any one else got this comp and has had the same trouble if so would you please let me know so i can take this further w...

  • Excerpt: I am very pleased with this laptop. It is fast, reliable has never broken down and is just generally great to work with. The whole feel of the laptop is great, you can really feel the quality. The screen clarity is great especially with the size of this screen. The keyboard is the only let down, it feels a little bit cheap and is not the most comfortable one to use, however I dock this laptop and therefore use my own keyboard.
  • Pros: Everything
  • Cons: keyboard

  • Excerpt: I love this laptop. It is a truly brilliant laptop and I have only managed to find one fault with it and that's the price. Looks The looks on this laptop are brilliant. Its just the right thickness and I love the black look. The keyboard and touchpad look good as well as does the traditional vaio logo on the top of the laptop. The huge 17 inch screen just helps make this laptop look the part. A great all round looking laptop.
  • Pros: Everything
  • Cons: A little costly

Sony go Home

  • Excerpt: The Sony Vaio a business laptop, not this one. Even thought sony would make a laptop for your home use, shur the business ones were great and good to use at home, but this one goes the other way round its great at home and good for business, though not as portable with a 17" screen so for a business i wouldn't recommend, but still good. It seems Vaio have started to make good laptops for the home as well as leading the way in business laptops.
  • Pros: Blu - ray, large screen, high spec
  • Cons: processor a bit behind the rest of its high spec gizmos

  • Summary: Ce portable est d'excellente facture et je le recommande chaudement pour toutes les personnes souhaitant posséder un portable robuste, rapide à l'écran parfait comme c'est l'habitude chez Sony. Point fort : - Excellent processeur intel core 2 duo T7500...très très puissant. - Ecran merveilleux full HD - Clavier plus que parfait...cela en est indécent pour la concurrence tellement Sony est fort en matière de clavier...Y a pas mieux au Monde.
  • Pros: Design  -  Puissant  -  Qualité de fabrication  -  fonctionnel  -  Ecran  -  Clavier
  • Cons: Peinture qui s'écaille  -  pas de trappe accès processeur  -  connectiques limitées  -  son
