Score 6.0/10
Good points:
weight & size
Bad points:
I faced twice with screen problem and it still remaining and since the value of laptop is around 2500 Euro such problem in around 2 years is not acceptable and will for sure make impact in my future choice.
If these problems were not existing or against my complaint letter I was facing with covering the charges & the change of screen free of charge my rating was 9-10 but I afraid to tell that despite once the problem was analyzed and screen was changed under warranty but again the aftersales asks to send the notebook for investigation which not needed since the same problem was happened around 1 year ago!!!

David, Rainham General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Being new technology it is a bit pricey. Everything else is just outstanding and have no problems whatsoever. Did originally blame network connection when i had trouble and waiting time to connect to the internet. Also blamed wireless router, only to find with the Sony there was no problems at all. It seems outstandingly fast and i do like the advice on prolonging batery life. Its size makes it truly a notebook rather than a laptop. The fingerprint recognition is superb, i don't know whether it really is secure but what it does allow you to do is have many different passwords without having to remember them all, a necessity these days, i believe. Overall it's an outstanding machine with no problems to date. I believe it will need to come down in price as technology improves. I do have more money than sense but this product, if it continues to perform the way it has done, is not a waste of money as far as i'm concerned.
One other thing which i forgot to mention, is the clever way of ejecting the disc from the keyboard (stops accidental opening which happened constantly on other notebooks).
Bad points:
None whatsoever... so far. It looks good, graphics are small but cleverly fixed with keyboard magnifyer on a function key. Only fault i can think of is onboard software. Was given Norton for 1 year but on board was Macafee trial. They refuse to work together and am finding it difficult to remove Macafee (gives constant annoying reminders to update).

Confirmed purchaser Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Just what I was looking for a mega sleek and light laptop that can pump out the performance of a desktop. It is a bit expensive but worth every penny in my opinion.
Bad points:
Nothing much I can say is bad just it is quite expensive for what you get,
