Pros Medium to heavy usage, good proccesor, sufficient memory and very good HDD performance, size is too small 250GB
Cons A bit bulky, but it grew on me. Pop out CD tray and no BD limited wifi, only G/B
Summary It died on me last night, it gave me close to 5 years of service running big programs as CS5 and video editing Showbiz 4. Great for movies and decent USB. Added a gig of memory and it performed a little beter, the screen is magnificent and I am a little sad to let her go Got her second hand for about $600 on ebay, so that was like $130 per year, so yeah, happy camper.
Pros Great HD screen for moderate Gaming
Great design and sturdy
Great keyboard and mouse
Cons DC jack broke but i could fix it for 6$
Full of blot ware
Summary This Laptop Has been with me for 5 Years! And is still working to its best! I have windows 8 on it and it work better than ever.
This laptop specs compared to a alienware are good but not as good.
Highly Recommend This laptop for anyone and it is not obsolete
Its Still Going Strong
Pros 16.4 inch high resolution LCD. Good for watching movies and graphics.
Cons Touchpad buttons are small and hard to click. Speaker is not powerful.
Summary I have used this for 1 year. Right before my warranty ran out, several cracks developed on the housing near the power button although I never dropped or bumped it. Sony repairs asked for $280 to replace it. At that point I emailed Sony CEO Ryoji Chubachi and other executives of the company explaining my situation. Few minutes later Repairs called me back and agreed to repair it free of charge as I had the warranty. Shouldn't I be pleased with the service? :]
Pros Looks amazing, 1900x1600 screen, lightweight,HDMI, Keyboard,Webcam
Cons Wifi is only B/G, 3 usb ports,Sony Bloatware, Speakers, Not really Sony quality, no slot loading DVDRW, horrible support
Summary I thought this was gonna be a great notebook, it turned out to an ok notebook. I've had Sony Viaos in the past and there build quality was great saddly this isnt, 3 gigs of ram on vista is still a little slow, My headphone port went out 17 days after I bought it so I had to send it back to Sony, and they told me I dropped it when its been sitting on my desk the whole time and they wanted to charge my $637 to replace the motherboard, I said no so they sent it back, and voided the warrenty so I opened it up just to find out the headphone part wasnt on the main motherboard, and all I had to do was solder it back in place, Bottem line is Sony does support there own products, so I'm getting an HP and just giving this away
Pros Notebook Style & Color - 16:9 screen - the BEST keyboard - magnesium alloy casing - built in camera
Cons Touch pad is the spookiest I ever used!
Summary All in all - I'm very happy at the one-month point of ownership. I AM ('Mos Def) gonna mouse this puter. I've tried every setting for the touch pad, and it still acts like its haunted. I only use it wireless around the house for biz and fun, so having to go back to a mouse isn't so bad. I just didn't think I would have to go backwards to retain my sanity!
