Sony Vaio FW560F/T (brown) review: Sony Vaio FW560F/T (brown)

 

Editors' note: This review is part of our 2009 Retail Laptop and Desktop Holiday Roundup , which covers specific fixed configurations of popular systems found in retail stores.

Affordable; slim for a 16-inch laptop; Blu-ray playback; decent gaming performance.

Screen isn't 1080p; media buttons hard to see in dim light; mediocre battery life.

With Blu-ray playback, a large screen and decent discrete graphics, the Sony Vaio FW560F/T is a very compelling sub-$1,000 multimedia notebook.

great power and build quality for $900

 

I ended up buying this laptop at **** for ****, and as soon as I got home I realized the potential that it has. I checked the peripherals to make sure everything was working, then I made boot discs. Everything has been running smoothly for the past 6...

Amazing computer - I got it for $999, though

 

I bought this new when it first came out at Best Buy for $999 - I don't know where a refurb get's to cost more than a new one.It's an excellent laptop for what I paid.
