Susan, Shropshire, England General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Trendy, modern streamline design, user friendly setup, easy use keypad, windows 7 is a simplified verson of windows xp, navigation of system is easier. Faster with 64bit operating system. Overall, I like Vaio's design.
Bad points:
No adobe flashplayer available yet for download with windows 7 64 bit operating system, whilst there are plenty of screensaver options for download, there are'nt anymore genuine windows 7 screensavers, also you cannot alter the settings of existing screensavers, ie, speed, colour, number of objects etc, and the pre-installed ones are limited choice.
