Good points:
Looks good
Bad points:
Wont last. I bought one of these laptops - big mistake! They look good but after 15 days of use the screen started having problems. Sony said the screen is cracked and not covered by the warranty!! I have not done anything to it so no idea how it cracked! Don't buy if you want something to last more than a month!

Good points:
design is great. lots of usefull applications. most of them I dont even know how to use but they seem to be useful.
Bad points:
On/off button is in completely wrong place. When I hold my laptop in one hand(right) i always turn it off.
Dispite of the fact that the laptop has 4 GB RAM and is on Windows 7 it is very slow. If I resume it from 3h hibernation, it will take 20 minutes to load(or very often I just have to restart it using power putton)
I am doing system updates every time when Windows 7 is asking for it. Some of them do not install. 2 times I had to do system restore as after update I couldnt load my profile. It only went to safe mode....I have many more bad point...

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight considering the size of the laptop
Bad points:
Ridiculously reduced battery life-loses 80% charge with half-an-hour of WLAN internet browsing!
The power button is easily pressed when holding the laptop so it switches off
The plastic outercasing on the lid makes it look quite cheap

Good points:
I like the design very much...its quite compatible as well. Good feature on touch pad, hope it will get more smooth by the time.
Bad points:
In-spite opting for engraving, I didn't got the engraved laptop with my name on it
I got i5 but the processing speed is not up-to mark, it seems I'm using i3. Are you guys gave me the right product :O
Performance was the only thing which I required...haven't got it
It says the battery will last for 4 hrs, its only a month I purchased it, now battery last for maximum 3 hrs.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The laptop is a great combination of size and power. If you want a laptop that is reasonable small, but packed with great specs, then this one is for you. It is stylish, quite light, has a great screen, starts fast, is packed with extra Sony Software (which you can disable if you don't like it), and the keyboard is ultra cool. The track pad has a pinch to enlarge function (quite cool). I have had this laptop for 3 months now and it has been plain sailing. It is super fast and the 14 inch screen is just the right size to make the machine small, but large enough not to force you to resize all the time to view stuff. Lastly, it just looks cool. People will be jealous.
Bad points:
Battery life...... Mmmmm. Not so great. Work on around an hour and a half to 2 hours max. Ok for me as I am usually near a plug.
