Summary: Been over a year now and this computer is first class. You pay extra for Sony, but for a quality computer you need to splurge. The whole family fights on who will use it (even though we have 2 other laptops in the house)!
Summary: I had forgotten to write a review of this product! I've owned it now for almost 2 years and I have not had one problem with it... IT's a great computer - I think sony makes the best laptops no matter what anyone else says.... The large 17.3 screen is a great size for a laptop... Very easy to use and we just love it.. cannot say enough good things about this laptop...
Summary: I'm still using this computer. The hard drive did crash, but Sony's customer service department took care of me pretty quickly. It is a fast, and surprisingly lightweight computer. Although this was my first VAIO, it won't be my last.
Summary: Amazing laptop, but the trackpad keeps freezing... It is a known issue, and nobody knows how to fix it!!! Arggggg!!! Alot of time I am unable to move to the left... I usually have to restart to reset the trackpad! Very frustrating!
Summary: It is very fast machine. Great screen and keyboard. I added 4G of RAM (total 8G). With such addition most of the applications open immediately. 650G hard drive is OK for laptop. However, most of new laptops have 750G hard disk, at least. I would rate it 5 stars, but it has really bad-bad sound.
Summary: Outstanding laptop, absolutely not problems and the on line backup from Sony has been very good. I am taking online classes and the larger screen is very nice. On the down side this is a heavy computer and carring it for any length of time can be tireing. I also had to buy a different case as my pervious laptop was much smaller.
