Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fast, durable, lightweight, compact
Bad points:
Pre-installed Sony software, I've been experiencing BIG problems with UNDOCKING from the docking station provided, which means that sometimes, the laptop is no better than a laptop, as I can't just whip it off my desk and run off to a meeting or home :-(

Rosemary, Southampton Business user

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Style slimline fast
Bad points:
ABSOLUTELY APPALLING SOUND CARD - do not buy if you have any interest in music let alone want it for gaming - if you need sound at all do NOT buy the Z series. How Sony can charge what they do and give such poor sound quality is beyond - I cannot use it for the purpose I bought it for - giving presentations for my business so it has been a total waste of money
