Good hardware for price, slow out of the box
This review is from: SONY Laptop VAIO EH Series VPCEH3LFX/B Intel Core i5 2450M (2.50 GHz) 6 GB Memory 750 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 3000 15.5" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
Pros: For the money, this machine has great specs if you plan to do nothing more than surf the Internet and write word documents. If you are looking for a game machine, then find one that has an independent graphics card, etc. The machine is a great size and weight and looks good to. The display is great...no dead pixels, etc.
Cons: Comes loaded with tons of junk. Had nearly 90 processes running upon startup. After spending several hours cleaning off trial junk and overhead, got processes down to 60 or so and was significantly faster. Common to the Vaio, there are times where the wiresless-N connection will drop and reconnect. This can be resolved through driver updates, etc. But frustrating until you get this resolved.
Other Thoughts: Overall I would buy this machine again for the purpose in which it was intended, a machine for my wife and her SOHO needs. If you get the machine and blast the OS and start over, it is actually a really nice little laptop.
