Ian, London General home user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
PC with good specification and very powerful. Full HD screen is excellent.
Bad points:
Power jack has failed twice. Sony refused to warranty claiming 'physical damage'. Disagree, but clear that power jack is not very robust. Repair cost over £100.

ian, Wembley Business user

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
large HD screen.
Bad points:
Screen is shiny not matt black and is very reflective.
It gets very hot and makes the desk so hot that you cant keep fingers on the desk without burning them.
this seems to be a weel known fault.
Batttery life is 1hr and not the 3 that is quoted in technical spec. (I have 2 PCs they are both the same).
It constantly changes the value of the tcp/IPv4 setting in the wireless adapter so that I have top keep turning it on again. It has reduced the definition of internet screen to white boxes with black borders as it says it has run out of resources, and I cant find how to reset it.
Considering it is an i7 its performance is not brilliant.
