Good points:
Nice design, works well
Bad points:
When the computer is put on sleep or hibernate mode, the battery continues to drain pretty quickly. Looking at internet forums, this appears to be a general problem with this model of sony vaio.

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
colour and size fine
Bad points:
I don't find it a good machine - more like an old model in a new case.

too much pre loaded ads on machine

Nothing much new about it other than the case colour. Battery life is appauling.

Very disappointed in Sony.

claire, london General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
the keyboard design is very comfortable to use. i thought the shiny covering and particularly the 'wrist rest area would get finger-marked but it doesn't and is soft on the wrists when typing. now i have matching mouse and speakers!
Bad points:
onesmall thing - when occasionally using the inbuilt mouse pad (normally use wireless mouse) i keep managing to decrease/increase the screen size in error. it's easy to click back to 100%, but not sure exactly what finger-movement combination does it!

Fergus, Newton Abbot General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The display is great. The processor is great. Love windows 7... Love the 14'' display LOVE this laptop. Highly recommend :)
Bad points:
Speaker quality... There is also no 'web' button like on some other sony vaio laptops.... However I normally just leave it on anyway and can always whack it on sleep mode if I'm not using it. It really doesnt bother me.
