SONY Laptop VAIO FW Series VGN-FW390JAS Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 (2.40 GHz) 4 GB Memory 250 GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 16.4

Pros: This is a follow up to my previous review regarding enabling VT through the BIOS update. Enabling VT opened the door for installing Windows 2008 Server and using Hyper-V virtualization. Why? Because I need to run Visual Studio, IIS and MS SQL on completely separate OS instances for development purposes. Virtualization allows me to do just that and the resolution of this laptop is a godsend for a developer's busy desktop. Worked great and I was even able to get every single bit of hardware working as well (camera, bluetooth, firewire, function keys, 100% everything). This thing could probably run as a production server with 2 VMs without any trouble. I believe this should help the previous reviewer's problem with Vista Ultimate. The key is this: once you install the new OS from scratch, the VERY FIRST THING you need to do is install the "Sony Shared Library" and then the "Sony Notebook Utilities". Then you can install the rest of the drivers (all found on Sony's web site).

Cons: Keyboard takes some getting used to.

Other Thoughts: If I was able to run Win2008 server with Hyper-V on it then I am sure you can run any version of Vista. The key is the proper sequence of package installation.

Pros: Flawless performance. I'm using it as a 4 Gbps trunk for iSCSI. The Intel drivers and software work great and are very intuitive. iSCSI boot...priceless. Overall a top quality product

Cons: A little pricey but it comes with the territory.

Pros: Microsoft's hardware is generally very high quality - if only they could get their software to be as good!
This mouse is very well made. The bluetooth option (why not advertised?) is excellent and the 1 GB memory stick/USB transmitter is a nice bonus. Very smooth - I love it.

Cons: Don't forget to turn off the switch at the bottom when not in use, or get ready to charge it every couple of days! Not a real con, just common sense!
