"One Great Machine for All kinds of Users"4.5 starson by tthanawala
Pros: Cool Sony Style
Best configuration for Price
Everything you need for Entertainment AND Power Users.
Screen Aspect Ration Magnificent!!
Cons: TouchPad sometimes goes hay-wire.
Summary: I used Dell before and compared to that, this is a great brand experience from Sony.
Screen size and resolution is excellent for viewing DVDs as well as Excel documents. Compared to the corresponding lines from other major vendors like Dell XPS and HP, this is a much better option. Whether you compare to price, slickness, screen, processing power, memory or any other criteria, this laptop beats the competition.
Processor and memory work in tandem and preform great.
I am a power user and use it for developing web pages and rely on hardware a lot.
This laptop gives me the peace of mind and responds to my commands at speeds I love. The touchpad sometimes jumps my cursor around the screen and I need to work on it a bit to make it work. But that has been the issue with XP too, and Vista is not helping either.
At a price of $1000 that I paid at Bestbuy in July, it is a great deal.
The cool features of a Blueray Disk Player and 24x DVD +- RW and components like media card reader, truly TFT screen and 16.4" screen size just help the overall coolness of this machine.
Enjoy it and love it too.
