Consumer review by: Nicholas Rush (newegg.com)

Poor LCD

 

The screen is very fragile. The identical 14" screen in another of our Sony Vaio laptops broke very easily. A replacement screen was only $80 though, so it's not too bad

Fast processor, runs very cool, the webcam software is pretty neat, the Intel HD 3000 GPU will play newer games on low settings. Starcraft 2 plays fine using medium/low settings with high quality textures

The LCD is of very poor quality. You'll notice this immediately when you start the laptop and see the black screen. This panel has the worst black uniformity that I have ever seen, and ghosting is very bad as well
