Sony VAIO EA24FM/W

 

Editors' note: This review is part of our 2010 retail laptop and desktop back-to-school roundup , covering specific fixed configurations of popular systems that can be found in retail stores.

Great keyboard and touch pad; solid Core i3 performance, Blu-ray, and Intel Wireless Display in an affordable package.

Middle-range battery life; screen brightness and speaker audio quality slightly underperform.

Comfortable, feature-packed, and with an eye-catching design, the Sony Vaio EA24FM/W and its combination of Blu-ray and Intel Wireless Display make it an affordable multimedia winner.

awesome laptop! would definitely recommend

 

I really like this computer. It's sleek and fast. The cons are pretty minor. (I would recommend getting the 'fresh start' option though, because I've never uninstalled so much useless bloatware crap before)

I've got the iridescent blue and it's absolutely gorgeous. Bright screen. I have the i5 M580, 7200rpm hdd, 4gb of ram and I can get from turning on the computer to opening a webpage in 40 seconds. It's never slowed down even with many programs open

The speakers are weak. I would have liked separate media control buttons for sound, video control, etc. The trackpad is textured, which I personally don't like. Average battery life ~4-5 hours on the large capacity battery. The fan is audible

Awesome laptop that I use everywhere.

 

I customized mine online at the Sony Store, getting an i5-520m CPU and ATI Radeon 5470 GPU. I stuck with the 320GB hard drive, and went without a blu-ray player. I use my laptop at school a lot (pretty much all day, every day), so the battery life was...

COLOUR ; Keyboard ; Keyboard skins ; Trackpad ; L-Shaped Power Thingy ; Lots of slots ; Real switch to turn wireless+bluetooth off/on ; Splashtop Browser OS ; Gaming Capabilities ; Works Great

Battery Life ; Finger-Print Magnet ; Screen Dust Collector ; Webcam (But I don't use it often so...) ; The DVD/CD optical drive slot seems flimsy

Horrible,horrible,horrible-never buy!

 

Because nothing about this laptop is good,in the end if you want this laptop for more than a week you are going to end up paying thousands for it to go to a repair store. I wouldnt suggest to anyone

I liked nothing and hated everything

Bad keys ; Slow ; breaks alot ; fragile ; not very portiable ; bad speakers ; shuts down when using USB's ; freezes alot ; bad memory ; battery falls out alot ; bad at charging ; breaks whenever a new product is installed,Id add more but there isnt...

Sony should be ahsamed by their track-pad and speakers.

 

Key board from Lenovo or HP , track-pad from Dell, speakers from Dell , processor from Intel and you would have an ok laptop. However such config. obviously does not exist. Shame on Sony for using such a gabage speakers and unworkable...

Intel processor. Key board is garbage but better than utter gabage which modern Dell , Toshiba, Acer, ASUS, Gateway are equiped. LCD screen is worse than my 5 years-old Dell

The worst track-pad I have ever seen on any laptop , even from 20 years ago. Jumpy pointer, inaccurate scrolling and tracking. The location of the pad is on the left side of center. Horrible

Best sub-$900 dollar laptop at Best Buy

 

I needed a laptop ASAP so I was forced to buying from Worst Buy. my budget was >900 so It boiled down to the samsung q430-11, this Vaio EA the hp dm4. Although the HP and Samsung had nice solid aluminum casing and the Samsung was better spec'd (i5...

Excellent Excellent Keyboard. CNET isn't wrong. As a touch typist and someone who's a longtime user of thinkpad laptop keyboards, I'm quite happy. I Just wish it had a trackpoint nub. It stays cool all day long, low powered i3 prob to thank for that

One major gripe: The 500gb HDD is partitioned stupidly, with a hidden recovery sector that takes up like 20gb! What the heck Sony? And they didn't include a Win 7 install DVD so I'm going to have to pirate a OEM .iso to do a clean install. timewaster
