Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The screen is superb, very bright and crisp at the highest resolution and the colour fidelity is also excellent.
Windows 7 upgrade went smoothly on this laptop.
Bad points:
Creation of recovery disks a pain if incorrect DVDs are used. I used Sony's own DVD-R, which did not work as they were version 2.1 so I had to use TDK DVD+R, which are version 1.3 and they work perfectly, Why not chuck in the installation DVD of Windows to save this hassle?

Manufacturer's Description

Overview The smooth, curved lines of the VAIO FW notebook are as functional as they are attractive. From the iconic cylindrical hinge to the sloping bezel where the keyboard meets the display, every last inch of this notebook is designed to maximize viewing area while minimizing size. The result: an innovative PC with a 16.4" LCD that combines all the benefits of a 17" widescreen display with the dimensions or “footprint” of a smaller 15.4" model. The FW notebook is ideal for those in the creative fields. The spacious 16.4" widescreen display can easily accommodate multi-display design programs. An HDMI output (HDMI cable required and sold separately) allows you to output hi-def content in full 1080p HD to compatible TVs.
