Pros fast processor, excellent speed, upgradeable RAM 2gb and harddrive, Handles application multitasking with ease
Cons mostly integrated, can't upgrade graphics card,
Summary This is a very durable notebook. Excellent usage and cutting edge processor - yet to be tested by new developing software, as I heard probably towards the end of year. I would highly recommend anyone to this new CPU as it will be the standard. We should see a paradigm to this in the next few quarters. Graphics card is Intel 945, although adequate, I would have prefered an NVIDIA 7800. But thats me. Gaming is adequate and does the job. Very nicely priced compared to the other ridiculous custom small form notebook manufacturers. I would also recommend the Acer Aspire 5672, that has a ATI graphics board. also integrated, but is very good. Would love to get overclocking software for the Core Duo, but its nascent introduction would require further testing by the programmers. LOL...cheers.
Pros smooth performance super quiet intel duo battery life
Cons none yet just had it 21 days
Summary sony comes out with smart products all the time and this is one of them. the design the picture the style and performance all at a price you can look at without thinking about it....great price for a very good laptop. it does'nt get much better than this under $1500.
I looked at macbook $2000 duck its great but no word or excel compatability...i did like the glow keyboard but other than a few extras the sony had it, pluse the extra 20 gig harddrive apple had only 80 sony has 100 pluse it has ports all over this thing intel Duo, winxp key stuff i needed...and could'nt do without!
maybe next time apple jack...
Pros Crisp, clear display, fast, big hardrive, slim sleek design
Cons mediocre speakers, not a great battery life, loaded with too much AOL software.
Summary Can't say enough about the magnificent display on this machine. The images are clean, clear and crisp. Text is very good also. Large hard drive and 1G RAM should satisfy all but gamers. Contacted tech support twice for assistance with wireless connection and was surprised by the excellent service. Tech spent more than 1 hr with me, turned out to be faulty router configuration, not SONY laptop. I have only used battery a few times but notice that it looses charge faster than I expected. Three USB ports conveniently located on right side. Even though this is not in the "ultra-thin & light" catergory, I have no problems taking this laptop on the road. It's no clunker by any means. It's thin and light for a display of this size. Very happy with this computer so far and pleasantly surprised with SONY's competent, patient tech support. Would recommend this laptop.
