4 out of 5 eggsButterbearTard

Pros: RAID0 SSD's makes the boot and load time of virtually any application almost instant. USB 3.0, Core i7 CPU... this machine has it all. The sheet battery for this style of VAIO provides worry free portability with more than a workday of life on a full charge.

Cons: The only con, is people posting reviews for products they do not own and with less than zero understanding of PC / laptop architecture.
" ButterTard's comment "Needs X amount of RAM per CPU"???? This machine has one CPU, so your suggesting only 2Gigs of ram?

Other Thoughts: Although I never utilize even 50% of this machines processing power I still installed 8Gigs of RAM total, because I'm a nerd and no other reason than that =P

4 out of 5 eggsDo not own.. Mere observations.

Pros: Nice compact size, power, display BD-ROM, free sheet battery.

Cons: Two things I see that will cause major hips for power users.

1). RAM: needs minimum 2GB per processor minimum, or that will bog the processor.

2). For the money: I think this should have a serious graphics card offering from Nvidia or ATI(AMD).

Other Thoughts: Great little machine if graphics aren't top priority and don't mind overpaying.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Display! speed! And ports! This machine is a beast, the trackpad has no issue, the keys are shallow but easy to adjust to. This machine is in a class by its own, the comment about the Zenbook, no way, you can't hook up multiple monitors, the speed is radically different , the resolution 1600x900 or true 1900x1080p, spun metal that does not sit right , I am a network admin and use my machines to the hilt, speed is a now feature for me, I have or use every machine out there from the air to the Samsung i7 and nothing and I mean nothing in this size can touch the benchmarks this puts down. PMD is just like carrying an external hard drive for my air. The battery slice makes this an all day workhorse

Cons: Okay I have to list them, sound..could do way better, a lot better, I use the bluetooth jawbone and it sounds awesome or a set of beats. Build is good but you can't just toss it around like my think pad , take care of it and it will last
