5 out of 5 eggsCorrection to previous review

Pros: The hardware switch disables the nvidia gpu. Optimus works with the switch set to speed. I tested with drivers from nvidia not sure if it works with sony supplied drives.

Cons: LCD started working after 4-5 hours.

Other Thoughts: 5 egg score is to average my score to 3 eggs. LCD not working for 4 hours is still troubling.

1 out of 5 eggsDead LCD

Pros: I largely agree with the first reviewers comments but this laptop does not use Optimus; it has a hardware switch for selecting the graphics card. This switch works well and can also change the power plan of and fan settings which I find very convenient.

Cons: Two issues I've encountered so far:

1: The left side of the keyboard has some flex, not bad but noticeable.

2 The LCD failed after four days. Not even listed in control panel when using an external monitor.

Other Thoughts: While This system has great specs and external build quality is good; it looks like there may be a problem with internal quality. Although I have to admit the box arrived in somewhat rough shape.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value for a new 3rd Gen i5 laptop

Pros: The value for the specs on this laptop are great. Fast, runs cool, quiet, thin, and light. Nice screen too, hard to find IPS screens on models like this.

I like the backlit keyboard, the large clickable trackpad, the ports it comes with, and the style.

Plays Diablo 3 and Civ 5 (even during late game) on max settings, and Des Ex Human Revolution on nearly max settings. Kepler core GPUs run cool, so I was able to overclock it a bit as well. I'm also liking the Optimus technology to save power.

Cons: The only thing holding this laptop back in terms of smoothness and speed is the hard drive it comes with. I can definitely feel when the 5400RPM drive is bottenecking the machine. I'd recommend getting a Hybrid drive or SSD to replace the one it comes with or switch out the dvd drive for a second, faster hard drive. At the very least, get a 7200 RPM drive.

Updating/installing/downloading stuff in the background proved to be too taxing for gaming to be smooth, so it may not be the best mutitasker out there depending on how intensive your background task is.

Lastly, the color red appears to be on the orange side, but isn't too noticeable in most applications unless you need to have perfect color accuracy in something like photoshop, video or image editing, etc. I was able to de-orange it a little by increasing blues a bit (+13) and toning down the reds a little to make them appear darker. Feel free to play with the Red contrast too in the graphics properties.

Other Thoughts: Speakers are actually better than I expected for a laptop, especiallly with the included sound software and Dolby processing. Nice and clear, with the exception of low frequency/bass, which is nearly non existent even when trying to listen for the bass. What do you expect from laptop speakers, though?

I couldn't find this exact configuration on the Sony website, but for this price, it was a great deal for my purposes. It's a good balance of portability, gaming ability, battery life, speed, and value.
