Confirmed purchaser Creative Professional

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Stylish design, fantastic screen and keyboard is great once you get used to it. The speakers are very good and the build quality is what you would expect from a Sony.
Bad points:
Now the bad points. Windows Vista. I upgraded from my previous laptop which had windows xp, and had no problems with the operating system. Windows vista is the buggiest software ever to set foot on the planet. It's slow, crashes frequently and seems incompatible with Internet Explorer 7.0. Adobe software wouldnt load successfully without hacks, just an all round poor experience. I am in the process of installing another hard disk and putting windows xp back on. Dont be fooled by the hype on vista
