Some customer reviews of Sony Vaio VPC-F12S1E

Most helpful reviews

Matthew, London Music, gaming or video fan

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Solid build, nice screen. Stops paper blowing away in a stiff breeze.
Bad points:
I've found the performance to be abysmal, even after a factory restore. Must be a lemon, but there's nothing I can do about it. Too much software loaded that's useless with no way to easily remove it. Fan very hot and loud - wouldn't mind if there was performance to match. Webcam average, software to control it very intrusive. Not buying a Sony again.
