Good points:
Excellent machine when it works. Fast and copes extremely well when multi-tasking.
Bad points:
Spent a total of 4 weeks away at the repair shop. Sony support and how they deal with problems leaves a lot to be desired.

Confirmed purchaser General home user

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Fast boot-up and close down.
Multitasks better than I'm used to.
Broadband and wireless connection good
Heat - seems to handle hot climates very well with no overheating problems even with no air-con.
Bad points:
No telephone socket for dialup (dial-up is still the main option in some countrys)
Can't see screen outside in the sunlight or in a room lit by sunlight.
Screen too reflective, and not a good size for browsing the internet. Too wide and not deep enough.
Screen again, often find I have to adjust the angle of the screen as the light changes or my position changes.
Key-board Layout bad. QUERTY keys off too the left instead of being central. Arrow keys a little small.
Not enough USB 2 Ports or space between them (have to use extension leads so they will fit),
Still get the message "will work better if connected to a USB 2 port" when all the ports are supposed to be USB 2.
Audio Volume needs to be one key only, not a short cut combination.
Combination drive not good, often does not see old disks and will not read them. have to use an external drive.

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
It has SATA port that is only the good thing about this model
Bad points:
There are many bad points
1) It is generating enromous of heat from heat sink, one day i shutdown the system then i hold the system to put in my bag i wounderd what happend is my hand is literally burnt. its true. i realy shocked that time. the second incident is i kept a glass of water on my table then after some time i am about to hold the glass to drink, again superise water is hot ( i kept the water at 10 degree centigrade).

2) It is not worth for that much money.

3) After 4 months screen is trun to blue with some error msg.

Jeremy, Music, gaming or video fan

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Fast processor, good graphics card, full HD resolution screen
Nice keyboard, able to run games like Crysis 2 at full spec. If this system was built into a HP style casing or Apple style body it would be much much better. Battery life is short but accept that as it is a beast..
Bad points:
For the cost the build quality is not as good as it could be; it feels very plastic and very fragile, It replaced a similar HP laptop, which though plastic was of a higher density plastic. Why not use aluminium? Not enough USB ports:2 only and they obstruct the blu ray drawer, it is also prone to run hot and the fan is noisy? It needs a larger capacity hard drive, maybe 500GB-1TB? Maybe running at 7200rather than 5400?

John, Grantham Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Generally pleased with the product. Good display of graphics, still images and moving images. Good responsive keyboard. Adequate stereo speakers for a laptop PC.
Bad points:
Cannot run the computer from mains ac power supply without insertion of the battery. No dedicated hardware button for volume up and volume down. Occasionally the scroll up/down and scroll left/right facility of the touch pad does not function properly.
