5 out of 5 eggsModerately fast, after memory upgrade

Pros: 1. Weight-It's only 2.7 lbs, which makes a huge difference when carrying it around all the time.
2. High Resolution Screen- Although it's small, it displays a lot of information.
3. Size- It's so small, you can carry it around almost anywhere you go.
4. Styling- Looks great and really gathers a lot of attention.
5. Battery Life- Lasts 5-8 hours, depending on what screen brightness you put it on.
6. Screen- Really thin, and is really bright. Other screens look dim when next to this one.
7. DVD Burner- This is THE smallest computer with one, within a reasonable budget.

Cons: 1. Only 1 GB of memory when I got it, and ran unbearably slow.
2. Came with tons of crapware, which took a long time to uninstall.
3. You get so much attention that it starts to bother you.

Other Thoughts: Runs reasonably fast when upgraded to 2 GB memory and without "trial" software.
Load Times-Cold Boot-63 Sec - Stand by - 4 Sec- Restart- 67 Sec Hibernate - 36 Sec

4 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: It runs ok once you upgrade it to 2GB. Also remove Norton Internet Security. It really slows it down a lot plus it's only a trial. Everything else runs ok.

Cons: It comes with Vista only. BUT Sony has drivers for it for Windows XP

Other Thoughts: You can't add 1GB to it yo uhave to remove the 1GB and put i na 2GB chip. It only has one memory slot. Over all I am very happy with it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very slim and lightweight. Battery life is excellent also. I agree with the one review that 2GB is the ticket! I upped it to 2GB before I ever booted for the 1st time. The first boot was slow but after I got it going and removed all the bloat-ware and trial stuff it was much better. Just removing the SQL stuff lone was a huge improvement. Now boot time to logon screen is about 1 minuite. I runs Word and Outlook just fine. It has all the standard features you would expect and even a DVD burner. Wireless and bluetooth work well and the screen is immaculate to say the least!

Cons: Not really a con against this notebook but really Vista. It really need to have 2GB or better to run good. AND get rid of Nortons. Norton will slow down the fastest of systems!

Other Thoughts: You have to take into consideration that this is not a gamming rig so it is no power house. But if you get rid of all the factory installed junk and trial software and install only the stuff you need it runs quite well. I would spend the extra $40 to get a 2GB memory module from NewEgg and you will be all set! If you are looking for lightweight, thin, and sleek ultra-portable you won't get any better than this. It's a little pricey but when you see the quality and how they managed to pack everything into something this small you know where the price tag comes from.

Pros: Great looks. Well thought-out streamlined design. Everything just where it should be.

Cons: Very slow! Avoid! If you are going to have to pay that much for the laptop, you should at least be able to perform simple tasks like word processing. Even with the lowest Vista graphics settings, the product still underperforms!

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome Laptop!

Pros: You will be hard pressed to top this one at this price! How sony pulled this off is amaziing! The screen is vivid, sharp and bright. It is very thin and light weight. Even has a dvd burner! Vista runs with no problem and a quick memory upgrade to 2GB it is SWEET!!! It is so cool how the power button is in the side of the hinge and the keyboard is nice! Wireless range is very good. I just can't say enough about it. If you are thinking about getting one you will not regret it.

Cons: None at all. It does come with a nice set of software but it's all trial-ware. So what else is new?

Other Thoughts: Not sure what the problems were with the previous review but I can say this thing ROCKS!! And so does NewEgg!!!

Pros: No pros for this laptop
Pros for Newegg only: Outstanding customer service, as always!

Cons: Do not buy this product! Very slow! I had to put Vista on the lowest setting and it was still slow. It is not worth the money you paid. 1.06GHz cannot run Vista business. I had to wait almost an hour for Microsoft Word to open up while in class. Microsoft Word kept crashing on me. AVOID!
