Sony Vaio AR51E: Excellent laptop...

popalong, Dooyoo

  • Summary: I am writing this review on this product, and in all honesty, this is one of the greatest laptops I have used. Before this one I owned another make of laptop , but I had to upgrade for extra storage space. The product is quick, has good enough space, and is easy to use. My model came with Vista and it's much easier to use than some of the reviews I read before had suggested. The body of the product is very strong and durable.
  • Pros: fast, large screen, useful buttons in easy to find places, three usb sockets, HDMI socket
  • Cons: large, uncomfortable on lap, short battery life

  • Summary: Its a large but powerful beats with a SUPERB screen, BUT - it went wrong 4 months into buying it, collection from France flawed, but got back finally but totally wiped back to original settings! As I was on dial-up this took ages with all the downloads to update, let alone install my added software. You say it has 2 hard drives - I decided to accept all the default locations, and everything was wiped by the repairer.
  • Pros: Like the screen and performance but that no good it its dead !
  • Cons: Unreliable ! andtakes 2 days to get back !

  • Excerpt: "...business and home use. My Sony Vaio has not let me down with either of these. Design ********* In general the design of the laptop, (although much the same as any other) is very good. The extra ports are well laid out and easy to access. The laptop is not as lightweight as others on the market, but is still light enough to be carried around with comfort. The keyboard is well designed and easy to use likewise is the touch-pad. In terms of build ...
  • Pros: Great all round quality product

Sony Vaio AR51E: Vaio & Vista gave me a headache!

Dooyoo
25 January 2008
  • Summary: I bought this laptop to replace an HP which I had been very happy with until the hinges broke after just 18 months. I was amazed to find that I could buy a 17" Sony for just £635. This is my first experience of Sony and of Windows vista, and it has been something of a bumpy ride, but I think it is settling down now. First of all, the laptop. Well it is quite big, being a 17" screen, and fairly heavy, which is OK if you use 2 hands to carry it, not easy with just one.
  • Pros: Nice screen, excellent spec, well-built, quiet in use
  • Cons: Poor battery life, vista incompatibilities, viao programs taking over

  • Excerpt: "This Sony vaio AR51SU is yet another laptop from the Sony vaio range, and also another fantastic laptop from this range. It takes the newest of technology, and the brand new designs from Sony, and puts it all into one laptop which functions just as good as it looks. This laptop is pretty much customised for all your media uses. This is one of the reasons it comes with windows vista ultimate installed on it. This means you get a lot more software ...
  • Pros: so much features
  • Cons: the price
