4 out of 5 eggsA solid gaming laptop

Pros: Stable, very powerful, runs new generation games without fuss. Nice sharp display. Blu ray drive and other accessories work as advertised.

Cons: The main problem is the addition of various bloatware items, the worst of which is the Vaio Care and other Vaio proprietary software. These tend to be resource hogs, and are very difficult to uninstall. On the other hand, if you are new to computers, or not very technically proficient, these programs could be helpful, But, to an experienced user, this stuff is just in the way. I formatted the hard drive and did a clean install of 7, and reinstalled the drivers from the Sony site. Big difference in performance, and the Vaio has impressed me ever since.

Other Thoughts: If you can get past the Viao bloatware, this is a very good laptop, that has effortlessly done everything I have asked of it. I have upgraded it to 8 gb RAM, and put a Corsair 160gb SSD in, for even more performance.

5 out of 5 eggsNew To Vaio

Pros: Backlit keyboard
BlueRay
Great Graphics
Ample Ram W/Room To Expand
Ample HardDrive Space W/Room To Expand

Cons: Poor auto-brightness dimming feature

Other Thoughts: Over all, the machine is a joy to use. Blows away the graphics and processing abilities of it's elders, and makes my prior computer purchases look like child's play. The backlit keyboard was a hard sell for me, as the keys are spaced more than the typical-user keyboard, but they are very easy to get accustomed to. I've used it for less than a day, and believe my WPM would be as fast as WPM on a native machine.

Very solid build as far as I can tell, just turn that auto-dim feature off if you find you don't like it. The screen is actually RATHER bright if you tell it to do so, otherwise that power-management feature will take the beauty out of the screen without you knowing it.

Seems to be an excellent bang for the buck, and would expect these types of results from a high-tier laptop. Not a low to mid, such as this. Try it... You'll be pleasantly surprised.
