Very light.
Fair battery
Simple set up with Sony software.
Bad points:
Processor a bit slow ( expecting it coming from a fully fledged laptop, but a bit slower than I expected). Sony software whilst good may be a factor on speed.

Jim, Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great machine. Good keyboard layout, fast (for price), lots of nice add ons, display great. I use this a lot on the road and for overseas travel too and it works great.
Bad points:
Battery - really disappointing, down to 2 hours on max settings, or maybe push 3 on power saving.
Struggling to get decent range of carry case / sleeve due to unorthodox size of machine.
