Excerpt: This is an all around great laptop. The Sony Vaio F has many great features. I had mine customized with a Blu-Ray drive and the 1920x1080 HD display. Its a great combo for watching BR movies. Its the i7 processor and 6GB RAM this computer can handle heavy processing. CAD rendering is handled very well with this machine.
Excerpt: this is a very good laptop. I recently bought this laptop for really cheap at the microsoftstore. And worth every penny!!!!! This laptop runs on an i7 processor and it is really quick i can multi task almost anything. The 1gig video card lets me play almost any game possible. I run Hon and Sc2 without any problems on the highest quality without any lag. The screen is a nice and big for high quality games and movies. Also the blue ray player is awsome.
Excerpt: I'm a huge Sony fan. Everything I own is a Sony product - I have a Bravia, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android phone, a Cyber-Shot camera, etc. etc. And my loyalty isn't blind. Before I commit myself to buying a new gadget or electronic product, I read all reviews to make sure I'm not buying something just for the name. I contemplated for a long time between all my laptop options and the F series fit my personality and usage needs perfectly.
Summary: I have had this laptop 5 mos now and am extremely pleased. The price was good, the shipping was good. I have had several Dells, but from now on it's gonna be Sony for me! I use only laptops for their portability and this is a good solid winner!
Summary: I've had this for almost a year now so I guess it's a good time to review it! I use it mainly for photo-editing on Photoshop and so on and web browsing. While I would say it handles most tasks quite well, it does have it's slow sticky moments, especially when running Lightroom 3 recently (which does use a lot of RAM to be honest). I reckon once I upgrade it to 8GB RAM this thing will be awesome. I really like Sony products and this one has not disappointed me.
Summary: I've owned this laptop since Jan 2011 and its been great. Great hardware and all-around performance. I bought it at a brick and mortar store for $1300 after taxes, so $1800 strikes me as pricey (maybe I just got lucky?) but it was a great value buy for me. Battery life is short(90-100min) if you're using wi-fi or running the bluray drive, however if you have the wi-fi off it jumps up to almost 3hrs on power saver mode.
Summary: I have contacted Sony for warranty repair they have not sent anybody to repair my laptop. I have called several times and finally someone calls on my cell phone when I was out of the country when I specifically told them to call my wife's number. I need this computer fix I work in Afghanistan and I need it when I go back in January. If they cannot fix it they need to give me a replacement. The computer got fixed and I did not loose any of my programs nor information.
Summary: I find this laptop to be super fast and efficient for video editing, etc. so have to give it 5 stars. Using CS5 Creative Suite Pro Premiere Pro and it's a breeze working on this Vaio model. Left it at the standard 6G of RAM but upgraded the OS to Windows Ultimate (actually, dual-booted so I can continue to have Sony coverage). Minor down-side is battery life (to be expected for i7 CPU) and also the fan nice (again, loaded machines tend to generate more heat).
Summary: This was a very good laptop. i am a Hp person myself and was looking to get the D7 but found out that many people were having issues with it. my favorite thing about this laptop is how easily it can link to the Ps3. i was looking at some of the one star reviews and one lady was complaining that her daughter had fried the motherboard after only owning it for a few months.
