"Decent Laptop"on by iLuvArt
Pros Laptop contains: Blu-Ray, Back lit light, dedicated Nvidia graphics, and decent processor.
Provide good performance for light computing to medium.
Cons The processor as many of you said, it could be i5.
Summary This computer shows good performance if you don't use a lot of programs at once, but for programmers this might be a "not-so-good" laptop, since some need a lot of applications running. But normally this has enough memory and speed to do normal jobs like internet surfing, photoshop, and some others.
Computer processors will keep on upgrading, and not many years from now this i3 processor or even the i5 processor might seem old, if you are a high schooler like me i3 is good enough. College and Universities depend on what you do, but for computer classes i5 I recommend. Sorry for long sentences not really good at english.
Pros Blu-Ray, Large Screen, Fast,
Cons Nothing, Works like Magic.
Summary Overall nice machine for nice price and dependable brand name.
Pros Sturdy, sleek. Backlit big keyboard w/ music buttons and # pad. 1yr Office & anti virus. Quiet, doesn't overheat, fast, blueray, big hard drive, nice 4GB memory. Mouse pad pinch zoom & rotate. Great speakers. Fire wire. Betr than average cam &
Cons wireless connect probs, less than bluray res. $1200 at Best Buy, not $999. Display looked a little washed ou in store. Had to do A LOT of tweaking to color ok. Mouse pad finicky. Apps freeze & have to close sometimes. No volume button on keyboard.
Summary Overall excellent but should not have such weak wireless detection for the price, nor should it be below a full resolution display. I had to do a hell of a lot of tweaking to get display and video colors decent. Should not have to do this at this price and for this brand. I'm taking it back because the wireless connectivity is not strong or reliable enough for my needs and I expect Sony to provide a full resolution display to take full advantage o its own blu-ray technology.
Pros I have the F12... Great processor power (i7), GT330M is nice, and 6GB DDR3 @ 1333 MHz is great. I did get the 1080p display and it's stunning. Back-lit keyboard has a nice effect.
Cons Battery life is around 2 1/2 hours-ish. Should be expected with this much power, however. Vaio Messenger kept popping up randomly, so I uninstalled it.
Summary Blu-Ray burner, 1080p display, i7, GT330M, 6GB DDR3 @ 1333 MHz, Adobe software suite (thrown in when bought from Sony), Bluetooth and wireless N make this laptop portable, yet a great desktop replacement.
Pros Looks like a solid laptop and I would probably seriously consider one if I was in the market for a new laptop right now.
Cons the screen didn't seem as bright/intense color as it could be.
Summary Looks like the CNet review is right on on the features of the laptop. Would be nice if the computer had a higher speed processor.
