Style Name: 6GB Verified Purchase
This is not the first Sony Vaio that I have either owned or used but it is the latest. My comments are based upon initial reactions after the first weekend of ownership.

It is basically a wedge-shaped design, sloping at about 10-15 degrees from back to front to provide a slight slope for easier use of the keyboard etc. Although the keys are black against a black background, the inscriptions are quite thin and light and would be difficult to read in poor lighting. Fortunately, Sony have provided back-lighting so that, if you need that assistance, it is there. The touch is light but positive, but the layout of the keys is not quite standard full sized keyboard. The main keyboard section and the navigation/editing keys are merged together. The numeric keypad is fairly standard. A touch pad is provided and is level with the wrist-rest portion and is identifiable by having a different texture. The 'mouse' keys are in the form of a rocker switch rather than having one each for left and right.

A 16.4 inch design with full HD, 1920 x 1080 resolution in the top-of-the range version and 1600 x 900 display at the lower end; the former is better suited to viewing Blu-ray disks, graphics editing, etc and less suited to word processing, spread sheets or anything using textual data in large quantities and the lower-resolution screen is the reverse and more readable. Typically Sony, the screen image is bright and sharp and the colours are intense and slightly different than you will find on other laptops and monitors. Unfortunately, a downside of having a full HD screen, excellent though it is for graphics and video use, text can be a little small and difficult to read for older eyes, in some situations.

Great screen, good colour reproduction.
Fast reaction time and multi tasking from the processor.
The Sony online help is second to none.
The wireless connectivity setup maybe could be improved, but there again that could be down to me, I need things to be ultra-simple and to work.
Hence my preference for Apple!
But as I need a Windows machine too, it's the best I've found so far.

Bought this laptop as new from dealer Bentham Ltd through Amazon UK. The laptop arrived promptly, unfortunately on opening the outer box I found this was NOT a new Sony Vaio as described on Amazon, the Sony laptop box has seen a lot of use and there was no manufacturer's seal. The plastic sleeve containing the laptop was also unsealed, the laptop case top has scuff marks and the general appearance of the machine looks tired. On booting up the laptop (just had to see if it was working) the laptop went into DOS mode with an error stating incorrect Windows Shut Down, Windows 7 then started as it had been pre-installed, however the only icon on the screen was the Recycle Bin, by this stage I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

Conclusion: this laptop is either an ex display model or reconditioned, it definitely is NOT knew, but is advertised and sold as new........ naughty

Be warned

Can I have my money back please?
