Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight, long battery life, option to "downgrade" to windows XP which is made easier by Sony with downloadable packages (which is an "upgrade" from the standard Vista installation in my opinion!). FIngerprint recognition is a great feature, if a little annoying at times.
Bad points:
Having to go to the hassle of removing Vista! Mouse pad is sometimes un-responsive, although this may be just a case of getting used to the difference since my last laptop. Wireless is as annoying as most, having to switch off and on if it 'fails' to connect to the router.
