imants, Birmingham Video and Music Editing

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Reliable and powerfull machine. I have been pushing it's limits with video and music edit. I really like VAIOs restore solutions. There have been few times when I had to reinstall windows, not because the laptop could not handle the tasks or corrupts, but because of my style of using a lot of software that over time is no longer needed, therefore, I prefer to start with clean system from time to time, and VAIOs restore software does a perfect job.
Bad points:
Battery life is not that great, but considering that it is a performance machine, it's reasonable. The screen is good, but for graphics and editing is not, the reason is it's limited viewing angle. After a year it becomes noisy at higher overload, as my environment tend to be dusty, but thats inevitable for laptops, the air vents just needs cleaning once a year and thats normal. For the next laptop I would like to go with SSD drive for more smoother performance, hopefully prices will be reasonable by then. Other than that, very stisfied with it, both visaually and performance wise.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Size of screen and weight. The quality of the images is excellent. The one button web access is fantastic and my favorite aspect of the product. Extremely easy to save photographs and music. The size of the processor means it is speedy. It also looks great.
Bad points:
There is rather an overwhelming range of things it can do. I simply haven't got round to working it all out - my use of the computer is pretty basic and I do get confused with all the technical terms although I accept they are necessary! An easy already printed off idiots guide of the main features would be helpful, giving tasters of what it does.
