Pros: The look of the laptop is amazing; a small, sleek, white computer, looks good.
Cons: The video card is garbage. Cannot stream Netflix in HD, also pre-loaded games like chess are laggy and slow because the video card cannot keep up. I'm not a hardcore gamer but I need a video card that can keep up with 2-d chess.
Other Thoughts: Other than the video card the computer is ok, but since the video card is a huge part, the computer is worthless to me.

Cons: *Battery life is poor compared to other netbooks out there. The battery on this machine is only 3500mah, which is about 30% smaller than comparable Asus and HP models, which come with 4400-5800mah batteries. The result is about 4 hours of real life casual use. If you're at the office all day you'd need the adapter. Don't know why Sony decided to do this. Seems foolish.
*The much hyped AMD E2-1800 isn't all that. It even has a hard time playing 720p smoothly, although older games seem to run okay (half life 2, GTA vice city, Plants vs. Zombies). AMD, help me love you.
*Came with 1 Dead pixel - C'mon Sony, you can check for these things so easily, instead of hoping that the customer wouldn't notice or wouldn't care enough to go through a return procedure.
*There's a slight gap between the touchpad and the rest of the plastic enclosure, which allows to actually see the electronics. This is bad mmmkay? If you spill something in that area, it'll end badly.
Other Thoughts: *Overall, I would not recommend this product to be honest. It feels like Sony could've done more before releasing this to the public. For $450, I expect a more put-together machine from such a usually-very-good brand.
