4 out of 5 eggsLove everything but the Wi-Fi

Pros: - Thin
- Light
- Great aesthetic design
- Large, innovative trackpad with gesture support
- Stunning 1080p screen
- Gigabit Ethernet
- Easily upgradeable
- LED-backlit keyboard
- Actually useful OEM software
- Great value for money
- HDMI out allows you to drive 1920x1200 external display with extended desktop
- Relatively little crapware
- Stays cool under load
- Small power supply

Cons: - Bad Wi-Fi. This laptop uses the Broadcom BCM43142, which from Google searches seems to be pretty much the worst Wi-Fi card ever. No 5 GHz support, and super slow. You can pretty much forget about HD streaming out of the box. It's that bad
- Low RAM. 4 GB is a crock, modern PCs need at least 6 GB IMO
- Core i3
- Don't expect to get all day performance out of the battery
- Disc tray locks but leaves a gap open on the underside
- Difficult to disable OEM update apps without uninstalling them
- Slow HDD. Yes, 5400 rpm laptop HDDs are par for the course. No, we don't have to accept this, especially when 7200 rpm HDDs used to be on the market

Other Thoughts: $620 for a 1080p screen + Gigabit Ethernet is a deal, especially considering that the next less expensive non-Sony laptop with those specs costs nearly $200 more. Fortunately it's 2 biggest shortcomings can be fixed for less than $200: an 8 GB stick of RAM + a decent N900 Wi-Fi adapter can be had for $120 total. The Core i3 won't blow anyone away, but it's fast enough for web surfing, watching video and productivity.

Sony threw in a few help and PC management/update apps that aren't obtrusive or obnoxious and actually work (!!!)

All things said, this is a great light duty laptop, especially for users who already have a high powered, big iron machine on hand and don't necessarily need another hot rod.
