Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Neat
Bad points:
i find the screen too narrow hence it,s very difficult to read as the print is too small for my eyesight. If I enlarge it to be able to read then the screen is too small.I am very disappointed and am not using it so my comments are not good. I wish I had bought a different.model will not buy on the Internet again.I am elderly but keep up with the times I recently bought an iPad 2 in one of your stores and I can see that. ,!!!!!!

ernestas, Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The laptop is quite thin, with a modern look to it,
The weight is amazing, I switched to it from a 10.1" netbook which is twice the weight of this vaio.
After using it as a main personal and work computer for half a year still not having any BSOD, cooling or any other problems whatsoever, the fans are still working silently.
Great value for money from a subjective perspective (satisfying design):
The netbook is quite thin and the design is aesthetically pleasing, making me somewhat emotionally satisfied with the product
Bad points:
The plastic on the back of the screen scratches extremely easy.
Not the best value for money from an objective perspective (poor build quality, above market price range):
The build quality is inferior to it's mostly identical spec. competitor lenovo s205 yet the vaio is still twice the price and despite emotional satisfaction, realistically the value for money isn't the best.

Steve, London Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I bought this to replace a netbook and I am happy with the result - much better performance, a slightly larger screen, only a little extra weight. It did cost 2.5x more than the netbook cost (2 years ago), but it proves you get what you pay for.
Bad points:
none so far
