Gareth, Durham

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
very compact for the size of the screen.good looking.good usb and aux connections.reliable make.built in web cam.a really well built machine with a quality feel and touch.excellent quality screen..clear and vivid and bright.Good cd drive.very good memory and good processor for the price of the machine.
Bad points:
battery life is short,sony offer a long life battery,but i dont think i should have to buy a better one,it should come with the best(why make an inferior option).also the usb ports should be spaced further apart,at the moment they are two pairs close together, but if you have say a mobile broadband dongle in one it overhangs the other,making it unusable.The speakers can be a little tinny and distorted at the high end of the scale.vista has all the usual problems that you will already know about.

Good points:
Over all very good.although I registered in 2012. Had this computer since 2009.
Bad points:
battery life poor.Fan noise needs to be sorted. compare to apple very heavy.crashes quite easily.
May be because it's been manufactured in china.
