Martin, Chesterfield General home user

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Nice design, lots of features included from Sony. It is also a pretty decent spec.
Bad points:
You can get laptops with a similar/better spec for far less money. The battery life is quite poor (I got less than 2 hours). It also feels poor build quality for the money.

After 3 days the left mouse button and the 'tap' on the touchpad broke. After looking on the internet and seeing lots of similar problems with VAIO laptops I took it back to the store and got a re-fund.

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Good screen size, resolution and memory spec
Bad points:
Track pad worn within weeks, very loud fan, struggles to play games without pausing, battery runs out quickly.

I think I ended up paying for the name rather than quality.
