Pros The price $599.
Cons If you put any pressure on the back panel, the LCD screen will crack, and cost to replace is $743.
Summary The flimsiest of the back panel wasn't discussed in the manual from Sony. When pressure is applied the LCD screen will crack. It is not as strong as Howards Computers. It is very strange that Sony would tell someone that they are responsible for viruses and liquid damage and not the LCD screen being easily cracked!
Pros Stylish, fast, reasonable price
Cons Battery Charger gets real hot, pre-loaded AOL items
Summary I'm really happy with my purchase. I purchased this same model only in pink and it is stunning looking! Everything runs just fine for me so far. It's quick, the screen resolution is awesome with vibrant colors and text is crystal clear.
I deleted all of the AOL junk that was pre-installed. The battery charger does tend to get really hot but maybe that is normal for a laptop charger? Not sure on that as I am no expert. What I am though is a picky shopper. I did a lot of price comparison and read reviews on different laptops. I had narrowed my search down since I was set on purchasing a pink laptop and found that this would be the best value for me. I wanted a 15.4 screen and all of the other features that it has is all that I needed. I think that this laptop is well worth the $599 that I paid. Great value!"
Pros 160gb, speedy , fast , good graphic
Cons no multimedia keys, bad baterrey
Pros Price, Weight, Esthetic Design,
Cons Only 2Gb of Ram, only 160 Gb HardDrive, battery life, was at best 3 hours
Summary So far I am pleased very much by this purchase. I am using this laptop everyday for long periods. It is being used, primarirly as a business computer, so we shall see if in the long run if it lasts. But so far so good!
