Richard, Grantham Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fast, Quiet, Cool (doesn't heat up), built in Bluetooth (I use a bluetooth mouse, don't enjoy the touchpads, and saves me a USB port). Has an InstantOn feature, been more than 4 months since I purchased this machine, only just learnt about the instant on last night. I feel so stupid.
Bad points:
Speakers, Battery life, had some problems after purchasing, but with extended warranty they're fixed. There is a huge lack of Support from Sony, I've spent months trying to find actual up to date software and drivers, but unfortunately the only place I can get any of that is through the Recovery feature and that installs all the bloatware, every time.
The Power button is in a really dumb place, whenever I need to pick up this laptop I end up turning it off (so in the future when I am picking it up, I have to close the lid first.)

Confirmed purchaser Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The best part of the laptop is the form factor, it not too big yet not too small. The keyboard has well spaced keys and its great when you have a lot of typing to do.
Since the laptop is mostly plastic and not metal like other laptops, its very light so when you've got it in a shoulder bag all day its doesn't feel a burden.
Bad points:
I really can fault this laptop it was great buy for the money however I would like to comment that the battery life is not the best, it could have been better, At most with power management I can get between 2 - 3 hours of constant battery usage.
