Summary: I have had the VGN-NS20E (pink) for about three years now, which isn't too bad considering many laptops only seem to have a lifespan of a year or two. Three members of my family have the same one and mine has definitely had the most use so there are a few problems now but in general for a first year or so it was fast, had enough memory and the screen being bigger is good as long as you aren't planning to take it around too much - it is quite heavy and bulky so not the...
Great at first, but 18 months later and I'm a little disappo ...

Summary: I bought this laptop in June 2009. It is the 3rd laptop I have had, with my previous laptops being a Fujitsu Siemens and an Acer. Both of my previous laptops have not lasted more than a couple of years each and I really wanted to spend that little bit extra to get one that would last. I ultimately bought this laptop on the basis of the Sony brand, despite my IT geeky friends saying it's not worth paying the extra for the name!
Pros: Good build quality, good battery life
Cons: Encountered technical issues just after warranty expired
Summary: Sony Vaios have built a reputation for themselves as an excellent series of laptops, and this is no exception. It is by no means the highest spec Vaio (as you would expect, as it sits on the lower end of the price spectrum) but it is well suited for home computer use. The screen is outstanding - sharp and clear, perfect for watching films. Similarly, the keyboard is top notch and of a very high quality.
Summary: Almost worth 5* Nothing to do with the seller though, they was perfect, packaged it well and arrived in good condition, couldn't tell it was second hand easily About the laptop itself, its good except for its internal graphics card, really lets down the rest of the laptop, works well for gaming but with a nicer graphics card it could do so much more, sony unfortunately didn't see it necisary.
Summary: Apart from the lap top very occasionally switching its self off without warning whilst plugged in to the mains, I am reasonably happy with the item. Windows Vista takes some getting used to after being used to XP & the Sony software and pop ups are a bind. Windows 7 seems to be getting better reviews than Vista. Technology should make products easier to use not harder and less user friendly.
Summary: This Sony Vaio NS20E has now been superseded by the NS30E; both come in silver, "S" suffix, or pink, "P" suffix. I've had my NS20ES for about six months and it has proved to be well specified and reliable. My main laptop is a big Toshiba Satellite which is a bit of a workhorse - I was looking for something a bit smaller and lighter to use for multimedia.
Summary: This is a slightly off the wall review but stick with me. I bought this after my second Macbook in a row died on me from major component failure. I love Macs and the Mac OS but was pretty fed up and not wanting to risk a £1000 for a third time lucky. So I've had great experience of Sony gear, especially as far as reliability and build quality goes and I plumped for this as a good value and capable looking machine.
