Stephen, Buckinghamshire General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
With the 64bit I find that the processing speed is more than adequate for my needs and so far does not cause problems with any other device. The keyboard is a pleasure to use. I am very impressed by the Sony update system which is installed and the related backup function.
Bad points:
The touchpad.

Maikel, Birmingham Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fast, reliable, excellent graphics, is able to widstand heavy applications. Has had a few blue screens of death but they were all software related. Just be gentle with it and it wont give you any problems.
Bad points:
It randomly decides to forget about the motion eye driver and any logitech mouse in operation.... this has happened three times now since I first bought it... I still haven't been able to decipher the reason behind this... but a couple of resets to best known configuration seem to clear up the problem each time.
