5 out of 5 eggsSony hits a homerun!

Pros: - Intel Core i7 740QM @ 1.73Ghz, which is a step above most comparable laptops at this price. 6GB of RAM, which, again, is more than most. Two laptops ago, a Dell Inspiron 6000 had 1920 x 1080 resolution on a 15.4" screen and my 50 yr old eyes found that resolution too small. My last laptop was a Compaq with the more standard 1366 x 768 resolution on a 16" screen. Easier on the eyes, but I missed the extra desktop space. I feel like Goldilocks with this 16.4" screen and its 1600 x 900 resolution. It feels JUST RIGHT. Very close to the same size as my last two laptops: a good compromise between lots of screen without the bulk of a 17" laptop.

The other GREAT thing about this laptop would be the all the connections. Lacks USB 3, found on most Asus, but there aren't many peripherals out there for USB 3. Includes Firewire port, HDMI out, Optical audio out and Express Card Slot/34 for future upgrades!!!! AND BLU-RAY!!!!

Cons: I choose the 640GB hard drive model at 5400 rpm instead of the 500GB hard drive at 7200 rpm, so not a con, a choice. Would have prefered ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics card for its DirectX 11 support, but not a big gamer and still glad to have 1 Gb of discreet graphics. GeForce 330M better than GeForce 310 found on many others. Speakers are disappointing, but who buys a laptop for its speakers? Sounds great with headphones or with my external Bose speakers attached. Ignore any concerns about the screen brightness adjusting itself... that's a feature that's easy to turn off if you don't like it. If I have two complaints and both are small ones. First, there are only 2 USB ports, requiring me to use a usb for my external mouse, external hard drive, and one more for my cooling pad. Will be solved, though, when I swap my external hard drive for a SATA drive, since this computer includes a SATA port, too!

Other Thoughts: The sheer number of different connections makes this feel very complete. I kept trying to justify an Asus over this one, but feature to feature, this computer had the Asus models beat. Found it elsewhere at a better price that NewEgg.com, which is uncommon. Wish I had called NewEgg and given them a chance to price match, though, because I wasn't happy with the service from the other store. (Not sure if NewEgg price matches or not.)

This is my first Sony, but my sixth notebook in 14 years. (I've had Toshiba, two Dells, two Compaqs, and now this Sony.) I wanted all the bells and whistles without going to 17". It's 15.25" wide, which meant I had to get a new case. Pay attention to the interior dimensions of cases!. Weight isn't about the same as my last two notebooks. I'm not one to quibble about an extra few ounces, still, I didn't need to worry. Love having a Blu-ray player since I now buy blu-ray and rent it with netflix.
