Summary: I really wanted to like this laptop, I like the straight angles and over all aesthetics of the laptop. It looks chic and hip. For a laptop with a dvd drive, it's light and slim. It's got the ports you need and the back lit keyboard is nice. People have complained about the screen and although it's not the best, it's not that bad either. Picture is slightly washed out but you can make slight adjustments to improve it.
Summary: After countless Sony notebooks over the last 15+ years, all of which I have been quite to very satisfied with, this is the first Sony notebook that I've bought that has totally annoyed me beyond belief. The fan is HORRIBLY LOUD and it cycles on and off every 5-10 seconds, which can drive you literally INSANE unless you have loud music or a loud TV on. If you want to work in a quiet setting, FORGET IT. It sounds like you're standing next to a 747 jet engine.
