Portable computers have come a long way since the sewing-machine-sized “luggables”, and this offering from Sony just emphasizes that point. With an ultra large LCD, an EPEAT(tm) Silver rating, Energy Star and RoHS compliance, and Super Multi DVD burner, 3GB of RAM and 250GB of hard drive, it's off to a good start.

Then add three USB ports and a Firewire port, a built in webcam and microphone, a gigabit LAN connection and a wireless LAN transceiver, Bluetooth technology, and a modem for the “old-fashioned” phone lines and you've got the connectivity you need while traveling.

Frankly, there isn’t enough room to really talk about it, so check out the specs for yourself and if this is the laptop for you, we will happily sell it to you.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: I bought this computer back in 2008 and it is still running strong!

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: The battery life only lasts like 20 min but that's because we leave it plugged in all the time!

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME MACHINE FOR THE MONEY

Pros: I purchased this laptop back in 2008; five years later it's still kicking :) I did upgrade the ram to 4GB, hdd to ssd drive, and it's running Win 8 now. I know it is pointless to write a review after five years, but I did it anyway.

Cons: The battery life was kinda short

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The specs on this laptop are amazing for the price.
It looks great, runs great, and performs well.

Cons: The battery life is "ok" (I get around 2.5 hours).
Its worth buying the extended life battery.

Laptop comes with a bit of pre-loaded junk, but that's to be expected of any brand-name laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsBest For Its Price

Pros: For its price range (I paid sub-$1000), I have found no other computer with this combination of ghz, RAM, memory, blu ray, etc. I have run the computer with and without the power cord for 6 hours now and I can still safely put the laptop on my lap (but not for long!). The engineering of this is beautiful, practical, ultra efficient, and downright amazing. The unheard of 16.4" 1080p screen is incredible, vibrant, suitable for a movie, and otherwise devine. ON TOP OF THAT, IT'S NOT A DELL!!!! And on newegg it was $170 cheaper than ANYONE else!

Cons: I could not downgrade the RAM or memory. These are cheaper to install myself and I'm not happy I had to pay extra for it.

I already knew that the left/ right mouse click is horrible and after usage only gets worse. But the scroll pad and sensitive tap features compensate, plus I can easily purchase a blue tooth, wireless, or plug-in mouse.

Youtube will not go to full screen without a download on Sony's website.

As with ANY blu ray laptop DVD, not all blue ray discs will play. Sony is upgrading the software monthly because new types of blue ray are constantly emerging.

Other Thoughts: Every con listed has a simple fix. I only wanted you to know them before purchasing the system. I understand that older Vaio systems have keyboard and screen issues. Every expert I have talked to say that this is the best Vaio yet and that the FW and AR series are flawless.

If I could have afforded the Alienware or Mac for $2-3,000 more with the same specs (minus screen and DVD), I would have bought it. But for the price it is unheard of. This is a computer that will probably be suitable in 10 years if maintained appropriately and slightly upgraded (ghz and RAM).

Whatever you do, don't buy a Dell. The customer care is HORRIBLE and the motherboards are, without a better word, miserable. I have had problems on all 5 Dell computers I have owned (and the embarrassing MP3) and no will from a supervisor, representative, or otherwise to assist me.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It does everything I need it to do. Plays Halo 2 which is a bonus. No waiting for things to open or load with the core 2 duo processor and 3gb of ram so it's a great laptop for the money.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent sub-$1000 system

Pros: Slim & lightweight even w/ 16.4 display. Fast! Performance Index 5.1. Built-in bluetooth, wireless-N. Feel of the keyboard will remind of desktop. 16.4 display is awesome and colors are very vivid. HDMI output. Excellent entertainment/business/everyday user system with specs equal to a sub-1000 laptop. Want one for cheaper $$$...remember you get what you pay for and Kudos to Sony. They built a solid machine. The system disappates heat very nicely as well...no hot spots to burn you.

Cons: Battery - buy the extended life battery, touch pad mouse - with bluetooth built-in...get yourself a mouse. In this day and age....who needs a modem anymore. A 7200 rpm HD would have been nice as well as Blu-Ray but you would not get that at this price.

Other Thoughts: This is not for hard-core gamers but plays Call of Duty 4 nicely for a laptop. I did not buy from newegg as my needs were immediate so local BBuy price point is a little higher. Get the extended life battery!!!
