I wanted to write a review simply because this laptop appears to have bad reviews - in fact when you read them they are not so negative and it didn't put me off buying this - especially as the price dropped from £599 to £547 and then again to £499 (looks like they've dropped it another £5 since I bought it!)

Bloatware review was helpful from Kingandy - I have used a free piece of software called PC Decrapifier to help with this. You can't really get away from bloatware these days as it is another revenue stream for the manufacturers to combat competitiveness in the market driving prices down, so small price to pay for cheaper laptops!

Laptop itself is very quick and stylish and I am so far very impressed with windows 7 (windows vista was awful). I bought the office 2010 product key to go with this too as it was conveniently pre-installed.

My only annoyance so far is that I keep accidentally re-sizing the screen with the touch pad (may just take some getting used to). The other thing is I have twice accidentally pressed the standby button when picking up the laptop but no big deal as it picks up where you left off.

I have had this machine just about a week and am extremely pleased with it, but then it is a Sony. I was unsure how I would take to a white keyboard but I now find it better than the usual black ones. The additional keypad is a great asset. Previous reviewer talks about "bloatware", I do not find this a problem as I just uninstalled the ones I did not want to use and used the "assist" button provided to tidy up the registery, no expert knowledge needed.

Overall I think this is a fantastic machine for the money and does everything it promised to do. Amazon, as always provided an excellent service with the machine being ordered on Sunday and arriving on the Wednesday...brilliant.

this machine will provide everything most people need from a laptop, it is a Sony and it is great value on Amazon.

First off as all Sony products do, it looks great. Combination of white and silver.
Keyboard is chiclet and so has each key on it's own which reduces typos. Mouse pad great with multitouch has a really nice feel to it. Area surrounding the mouse pad is a bit squeaky plastic but nice and stable.
Solidly built which is nice.
Great for if you do presentations. Enough kick to get microsoft office up in no time and well with 3 USB's a sata/usb power slot, HDMI and VGA slot then you can't really go wrong.
Spec wise well you pay for what you get, and you pay a little extra for it being a Vaio.
Bloatware is annoying but if you have a computer friend get them round to wipe it and put windows on as I personally find it annoying.

I have never owned a portable computer, but am an experienced build yer own computer user, having built desktops with high gfx specs.

I am very pleased with this computer, to date I cannot fault it. I have purchased a wireless keyboard and mouse for it (logitech 250) which works flawlessly and have been able to connect it to my jvc 32in television via hdmi which is fantastic.

I had to use the online help, chat capability of sony online for assistance with connecting the television, which I found to be very efficient and very helpful.

Found my sd cards had to be formatted by the vaio in order for them to be recognised.

The laptop will play quake live and anno1404 and handles pinnacle studio 14 with ease.

The webcam is nice and clear too, much much better than an old zoom usb cam i already own.

I bought this laptop as part of a video backup solution because it was the cheapest I could find with an eSATA socket.

Having read a few reviews, I wasn't expecting it to be especially speedy however on using it I found it performed perfectly well, much better than I'd expected after reading other reviews.

The screen is really clear - although quite reflective.

The track pad location is unusual, however it doesn't make it any difference to its use and the pad itself it good to touch. The keyboard is very nicely constructed. I've not used a keyboard style like this before (I persume this is Apple Mac style), and the keys are well laid out and have a nice action to them.

Overall, this feels like a real quality product, and I'd recommend it.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Tom on 26 Jan. 2011
Really pleased with my new Sony Vaio laptop.

Build quality is decent - go and have a play with one in the Sony Store and see for yourself. Small footprint and not heavy.

Performance has been good and the "Web" button a welcome addition. Battery not great.

Only down-point is I had to spend an hour or two uninstalling bloatware when it arrived.

Recommended but make sure you get a good price - this is a little premium for the build quality etc. but not £600 material.

Dead easy to set up and connected to my wireless network straight away.Loads of programs that needed removing,but thats maybe a personal choice.I think the track pad or if you like,the movement of the pointer is not that good.I had to change the speed,that helped,but it now tends to be a little vague.Not as accurate or easy as HP.
Looks good,feels good and maybe I will be converted completely in a week or two.
Have to say I was expecting a better speed increase in all dept with i3 and 4gb ram,last laptop was 3gb ram.But I noticed only 10% difference really.
Still it looks beautiful,well built,easy to use and set up.So I am sure I will enjoy it.It certainly is very silent and runs cool,very cool.Have not even heard the fan come on yet.last laptop could boil eggs.
Hope that it lasts longer than previous laptop,which was very well cared for,yet only lasted two years.Would say that although 3 USB is nice,maybe spreading them out would have been better.They are like a row of soldiers all packed at the front right.So close to each other I doubt some memory sticks would fit in side by side.Windows 7 is good,very good.Start up if you manage applications that start on start up is very quick.But start up manager is a must,cut the applications that run from start up as much as possible.
