Pros light weight, great price, everthing was super until today
Cons I have it four weeks and for no reason the display screen is out
Summary Contacted Sony tech support they try to trouble shoot with me all they could and still no picture, the pc was working and I could see behind the screen the page was there but it would not light up ,I only own it four weeks and bought full warrantys for 3 years from Best Buy so will see what they have to say , the tech says I will have to return it, I have all my personal things already added so now have to clean it out before taking it in , am very disappointed all total paid $2000 for it with the warranties and extras. Was my first laptop, it was brand new, wonder if anyone else has had this happen with their laptop but I thought I should inform about this as I only have it four weeks.
Pros Excellent screen quality, slim and cute.
Cons Sound quality is good. But max volume less (as good as any other laptop except DELL). lack of multimedia keys, but Fn key serves the perpose.
Summary I bought it couple of months ago. I found no problem with it. would recommend this one for HP-dv1000 series/Dell-xps140/Thosibha M55.

Pros Excellend speed, Dual Channel DDR2, SATA HDD, awesome display, 4-5 hour battery life.
Cons Price, and it gets a little warm
Summary I was looking for a nice 14" notebook for school and i picked this one over the HP DV1500 series and the Toshiba M55 series that were a little cheaper. I chose this one because of the screen; I want to use this around campus and be able to use it outside. The processor/RAM combination provides amazing speed and quick start-up time. (even with anti-virus and anti-spyware software) The battery life is great; 4-5 hours depending on use and screen brightness.
Pros not bothered
Cons Customer service Product Quality pathetic
Summary It is not even an year since I purchased this product and I have had to send the laptop back to the Sony Service center in California for CD/DVD read/write issues. Within 3 months of buying the CD/DVD konked out. The drive was unable read/write CDs or DVDs. After I got it back the problem was partially resolved. Write is still an Issue. Sony is asking me to send it back to their Service center again.
This is ridiculous...am I just expected to sit around talking to their Support guys all day, wasting my phone minutes explain the each rep the entire history, backing up my data and mailing my laptop back to them and going without a laptop for n no of days (as they are unable to give u an days estimate for the repair) till i receive it and then discovering that all the pain I went thru was of no use as the problem is still not solved.
Sony is pathetic. Do not ever buy their products.
Pros Weight, size, fan doesn't make noise.
Cons Heats up really quick, battery life, no bluetooth
Summary As other people said, watch out for "MADE IN CHINA" vaios. The screen died within 4 months and I believe this is a common problem in this model. I bought sony thinking that the quality would be great and I wont have any problems but didn't work. Not the best choice for $1300.
