Customer Review

on March 9, 2010
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!
