Comments: 4 gig of RAMS is a little slow for this type of system and configuration, recommend 8 gig for better performance.

Good Buy

Comments: Nothing to do with the unit but I bought 16.4" to have a larger screen, wish I had spent a little more for a 17"+.

Worth the money

Pros: blew me away, first exprerience with SONY Laptop, so far i'm still impress. Intel Core i7, 4GB option to add more, NVIDIA, Keyboard, screen size and really fast also the fan is on the side.

Cons: Had a touchpad issue sent it back and awaiting on the exchange.

Overall Review: Might experience slowness on some sites. It depends on your internet speed.
Other than that you should get it.

5/ 5

Pros: Good specs, good price, solid hardware

Cons: Somewhat heavy (expected for the size), runs a little hot

Overall Review: I've been running this laptop for roughly 3 weeks, and I'm happy with it thus far. The price is competitive for the specs. The i7 processor comes in real handy for me when running long MATLAB scripts. Fast boot and load times. The hardware is solid, and I'm a big fan of the individual key design of the keyboard. I didn't expect to use the num pad much, but it's actually a nice addition. I don't have any USB 3.0 devices yet, but I'm looking forward to the improved speeds. Light sensor controls the keyboard backlight to preserve battery life when backlighting is unnecessary.

It does run a little hot, consistent with many other reviews, and the fan is running often. A simple $5 cooling pad solved this problem without a hitch. The lack of volume control buttons with the other media keys is baffling, but a simple keystroke performs the same function (Fn + F3/4). The speakers are pretty wimpy - use headphones/speakers. Got some CPU whine at first, has since stopped.

Be sure before you buy

Pros: Nice specs / good price, that's why it keeps some eggs.

Cons: Fan is constantly running, has a high pitch whining noise. There's supposed to be some kind of bios tweak out there, but I'm yet to find it. So now I might be able to return it by paying return shipping within the first 30 days or else I have to deal with Sony. And I cant afford to be without a laptop. For Sony, besides the time it will be in the "shop", there's no guarantee that they will even put it back together properly. This is a good case for paying extra for the item and taxes to buy locally.
