Summary: I bought this laptop few months ago, and i think it was the worst decision that i had made in my life, the screen get cracked spontaneously, and Sony refused to repair it. they have the worst customer service. i am not gonna buy any Sony product again.
Summary: Laptop has perfect design with nice technical features. I bought it for my wife and have had no problem with software installations and drivers findings. Large hard drive stores all information we need, especially huge volume of photos which can be uploaded via SD port. According to me monitor I prefer matte screen yet my wife is ok with glossy. Great balance between product and money invested.
Summary: this is the worst vaio ever, the fan is very loud never stops running and getting hotter, also dvd player is loud, always needs to be repaired. I hate it, I just wanna put it appart and ship it to sony's CEO, do not buy it.
Summary: I got this laptop less than two years ago. After less than one year, I was already having problems. When I start the computer, it gets to the home screen, then freezes. I've taken this to several computer repair places, and no one can find the problem. I've put >$400 into trying to repair this problem, when I should have just gotten a new laptop right off the bat. Now, about 6 months ago, the charger stopped working.
Great Balanced Laptop for home use and some gaming

Summary: Had this laptop for a while. Performance is very good. With 4GB RAM and Intel HD Graphics card, it's even powerful enough for some new 3D games. Of course you cannot turn on all game graphics settings to high. I use this for home and some gaming. Had no problem at all.
Summary: I bought this laptop at BestBuy with the blu ray player included and I can say that is a little bit overpriced due to the 1st generation processor, but I can't complain about performance, the video isn't that great but overall is a nice looking laptop. The power button location might be a pain when holding the laptop in your hands.
Summary: I got this laptop at bestbuy. I have to admit, Sony laptop does not deserve its reputation. It runs very slow, always freeze, I even have problem when playing PES6! you know, bro, it is a game on 2007! Totally horrible. And if you use it to see videos on youtube, it is not video, it is powerpoint slides... you know what I mean. I would never buy a Vaio product! BTW, this can even not display terms in SPSS. hell.
