5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop, high price.

Pros: This laptop is everything I expected of it. I run a few games(Battlefield 2142 and World of Warcraft) and they run great. The battery lasts a reasonable amount of time, considering the hardware it's powering. Overall, I got exactly what I paid for.

Cons: 1 - Vista Business. It works ok, but won't play Battlefield 2.

2 - Size. This laptop is very thin, but I wanted something close to the dimensions of my previous laptop.

3 - I would have liked if the carbon fiber weave was visible in the lid.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a very light, very portable laptop that will play some games well, and still be useful to a business traveler, or home user, this is for you.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat notebook once setup properly

Pros: Extremely lightweight, solid high quality construction, completely silent operation, plenty of horsepower, great battery life, awesome LCD panel..and wow does it look nice!

Cons: Comes with a ton of bloatware. Sony includes no discs and extremely limited documentation with the unit. I attempted to get a hard copy of Vista, however after spending hours on the phone I was finally told by a very rude top tier support representative that the copy of Vista doesn't belong to me and if I want to have a clean copy I must buy one myself. Calls to Microsoft got me to the same point. System comes preinstalled with some horribly outdated drivers and power management software and Sony's site is VERY slow to provide updated versions. I ended up going to individual chipset manufacturers to get the most up to date drivers of every system component, plus the updated power management application from Sony. This was necessary as the laptop would quickly run down the battery initially, however all is well now and I get fantastic battery life!

Other Thoughts: I love the laptop itself..it's a solid extremely portable and powerful machine. Just be prepared to do a lot of work on the unit once you get it, and know that it comes with no real bundled software - even Vista apparently isn't yours..I plan to purchase another copy so I can clean install.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat notebook computer

Pros: Very light, stylish, and excellent quality. Runs quiet and cool. Everything I'm looking for is in this computer. Newegg service is superb, I received the product in 36 hours after I ordered it.

Cons: The AC adapter is bulky and I have to get the stick adapter for about $100. Windows Vista makes many of my key software to have problems from time to time and I have to reboot almost everyday (then the confliction goes away for a while).

Other Thoughts: Could have one more USB port. The system sleep is kind of slow but I don't know if it's related with Vista.
