Confirmed purchaser General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This is a pleasingly designed laptop with good quality materials and keyboard. Good performace and bright sharp display. The spec including Windows 7 professional and 6Gb Ram is excellent. If you are looking for a reasonably high spec machine with a relatively small screen then this is ideal.
Bad points:
This is not a light or particulalry slim machine. Battery life is good but not great. HDMI is provided on the machine but not on the (very expensive) docking station.

Good machine with decent battery and good specs- ok even at 2 years
Bad points:
Overall quality
I have had to the motherboard replaced- luckily under warranty.
Now outside of warranty, the screen has given up.
Quite unlike my previous vaio which is still great at 10 years.
