Runs Ubuntu Well
Pros: For the most part this thing runs Ubuntu 8.10 like a champ. Everything works well with the exception of the top touch controls and of course suspending. I couldn't ask for much more considering I didn't do my research.
Cons: The touch pad and corresponding mouse buttons felt cheap at first but now that they have lossened up they feel good. The keys take a bit of getting used to from a standard keyboard.
Other Thoughts: Sony modeled this after the white macbooks. I didn't realize how much till I purchased but in almost every aspect you can see the macs inspiration.

Pros: What's this? 1.3MP webcam? Are you sure? Because if no one told me that, I would have thought it was a 10MP webcam, no lie. The microphone is really clear in terms of clarity too. The bloatware took up 20GB, and I relinquished most of it. Windows Vista runs smooth. It comes with a lot of programs too, which, maybe later, I will remove.
Cons: The case does not lock, instead, it uses a magnet(only on one side, mind you) to keep it shut. The mousepad took hours to get used to, and as having it for one day, I still have to keep tweaking with it. It's very very rough. I dislike that the arrow keys were hybrid "home", "end", etc buttons.
Other Thoughts: In terms of price and the "range" that is right now for computers and also the fact that it's a Sony(price), it's pretty balanced and standard. I really enjoyed the functionalities it gives, and the weight and size. If you would compare this laptop to a 15.4, the differences are not very noticeable, but the weight certainly is. I can carry it around with ease.
