Most helpful reviews

nigel, Bristol General home user

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
The lit keyboard and general performance
Bad points:
Microphone socket broke with normal use and the screen had an annoying pixel break in the middle of the screen. The plastic transparent cover collects dirt and if anything near it it is caught underneath and can't be cleaned. That with poor Sony service when screen and socket highlighted which forced me to pay for the screen replacement, not a great customer experience

This laptop was chosen for the pink colour, could not find another anywhere due to flooding in Thailand. I really wanted Sony Vaio as son and daughter have one each and theirs have been no bother.(unlike prev cheaper ones bought from another well known manufacturer)
Bad points:
Can't find any bad points at the moment.
