    Had this laptop for a week, and I am extremely satisfied with it. The price, in my opinion is totally justified because this laptop truly is an exquisite piece of technology. It looks awesome and is a headturner. The high resolution screen is a pleasure to look at, the touchpad is different from most other laptops, in that the surface is rough, but I love it now. The speakers aren't the best but I have a decent speaker system to plug it into anyways, but my absolute favourite thing about this laptop is the keyboard. It is probably one of the best keyboards I've ever used, it's just like the Mac one that Apple nicked off Sony Vaio and it's still probably the best keyboard. Also, unlike most other laptops of this size it possesses a number pad, a nice extra bonus! The instant web feature is also really useful. After a week and after adding 90 gigs of memory off my old desktop to it it's still super fast and hasn't slowed in the slightest but you might want to remove Vaio Gate because that is the one application that is really slow, otherwise everything is extremely fast! The HDMI is a nice addition and has been really useful. Looks great on the plasma! Oh, and Windows 7 works extremely well with the specs and operating system. Would definitely recommend, very happy with it, will update if anything goes seriously wrong with it in the future.

    Pros:
    -The screen is bright and colourful and very nice to look at
    -instant web feature is very useful to get surfing in around 30 seconds
    -best keyboard I've ever used + number pad
    -looks absolutely fantastic!
    -doesn't burn your lap like a acer, and doesn't really heat up at all except for slight above room temperature at the vent
    -completely silent

    Cons:
    -Battery life isn't the best, lasting about 3 hours tops
    -speakers aren't the best but probably a bit louder than a macbook

    If you're looking for a new laptop and 500 is your budget, I couldn't recommend a better buy!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Laptop 14 Mar 2010
    Very impressed with this Vaio. Normal Amazon fast delivery. Very quick to boot up and an instant on web browser that does not require the computer to boot up. No idea how they do that but it works well. Lovely keyboard, with a number pad - unusual in a laptop. Crystal clear screen. The only down side is the mostly usless software that Sony loads onto its machines. Highly recommended!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great laptop, good price! sparkly! 11 April 2010
    By jimmyreviewer1988 VINE VOICE
    I have had this laptop for a couple of weeks now and have been very happy with it.

    I think it looks absolutely fantastic and seems very very fast.

    Windows 7 is definitely a great improvement on vista and I see the AC adaptors have changed to a smaller model.

    The new straight to web feature is fantastic and saves so much time!

    My only gripe is the mouse being on the left confuses me a little sometimes as does the keyboard!

    A must buy!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very good with some minor issues 27 May 2010
    By ACG
    Wanting to replace my 4-year old VAIO with another VAIO, I bought this one. The price is great, considering it's a Sony, so no complaints there. I've had it for a few days now and so far am happy with it. Just a few issues which, while not necessarily negative, do tend to annoy me. For one thing, the power button is right on the edge on the right hand side. Since I usually sit with the laptop on my lap, I tend to shift it around a bit every now and then holding it by the edges. I'm getting pretty tired with accidently hitting the power button! I find that the touchpad isn't sensitive enough, no matter what settings I use. Sometimes when I tap it lightly, instead of clicking what it's supposed to click, the mouse just jumps around. The touchpad itself has a grainy texture. Personally, I quite like the feel of it, but my husband doesn't like it at all. Another thing that bothers him and not me is that the part in front of the keyboard, where your wrists rest while typing (sorry, I don't know what it's called!) is a glittery white - too jazzy for him! The lid is a beautiful silver, not white as it states on Amazon. As far as the performance goes, I have nothing to complain about. The Quick Web Access button is great - boots the lappie to internet-ready state in less than 30 seconds on a Wifi connection. Battery life is under 2 hours from fully charged, which is not great (especially if compared to a Dell Mini which lasts for more than 6 hours!) but I knew about this before I bought it. The fan seems to be working fine at keeping it cool. For regular use, this laptop is perfect, especially if you're a Sony fan. Amazon delivery was super quick (as always!).

    UPDATE (7 June 2010): There appears to be some problem with the adapter. When the laptop is plugged in, it gives an electric shock!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good all round laptop with nice features. 1 May 2010
    By Darby
    I bought this middle april through Amazon and am very pleased with my purchase. Arrived next day due to Amazon Prime well packaged and documented. Laptop is quick to start and feels well built in terms of components.

    East to setup and battery life is good and works well as an office and development (Visual Studio) machine - i3 performance is comparably better than my 2.2 Core2Duo work laptop. Onboard graphics card is fine for Windows 7 Aero, but by no means a sturdy games machine, but you'd get a WII/PS3/XBOX if you want a shiny graphics games platform.

    Only downsides I can see are:
    1. Too much rubbish preloaded (Norton, Mcafee, Office trials), but easy to remove/uninstall
    2. Screen is LCD and not backlit LED so not good in bright conditions but fine in normal ambient circumstances.
    3. No firewire (...cheapskates, Sony).

    I considered a Dell/HP/Samsung machine when looking around for a laptop, so would recommend you have a wander around a high-street store first to see what feels right.

    Overall very pleased with laptop so far.
