Summary: After I posted a bad review, Sony techs worked with me to get the laptop up and running before the warranty expired. Apparently there was a bad file or missing file which caused an error stating that my operating system was missing. I worked for a company and they believed in Sony products and that was why I purchased a Sony laptop. So my laptop is up and running smoothly like it should, finally after weeks of working with the techs.
Summary: Product arrived on time and as advertised. Great price on the refurbished model. There are a few glitches in switching from a Mac to a pc. Macs are more intuitive. I find it really annoying to barely skip across one of the ads and the damn thing pops up. You have to actually click on it for it to pop up on a Mac. That being said the graphics are great, the HD screen is awesome. Having an HDMI connection to link to a TV is very convenient.
Summary: i bought the sony vaio in march.. and i cant believe that the system is damaged. and i have no warranty. a splash of water on the keyboard and it damaged the whole thing. i tried contacting the seller but no avail, am so pissed,. m money wasted.
Summary: I have this for not even a year yet and it has more problem than I had with my HP laptop that I owned for 4 years. The only thing that's better is the fan which I love. It makes zero noise and never overheats which is the complete opposite for HP unfortunately. And it's Window 7 oppose to HP which was Vista. The touchpad is HORRIBLE, oh my goodness. It will glitch out and not work or be immobile, etc. I had to buy a mouse because sometimes it's just unusable.
Summary: So this is a great laptop because: 1.It has a really really cool design and textured cover and touchpad,and this is very confortable.But if u buy this laptop don't forget that you'll get something really big,because it really is.I was expecting at something smaller,but is perfect 2.It has a great price.In my country,I have seen this laptop and it was about 1000$,so if you are from another country,buy this.And thrust me,even if you have to pay the shipping,it's a better...
nice feel, sturdy build, great textured scratchpad, cursor issues.

Summary: The laptop is very well built, the texture of laptop and scratch pad prevent smudges and make it very comfortable. Don't expect mind-boggling performance, streams hd videos without issues. 1 issue - cursor hanged on multiple occasions for a couple of seconds - can be a bit unnerving.
Summary: I purchased a VGN FE 890 laptop for $1500, which failed just 5 months after warranty expired. It has the exactly problem with the other callback models, which have defective NVIDIA graphics cards. With exactly graphics card and exactly failure, but different model number laptop, sony refused to acknowledge and repair it for free. I was told I have to pay another $700 for their own manufacturing defectiveness. I didn't expect this from such reputable brand.
