Consumer review by: Butterbearx (

Do not own.. Mere observations.


Great little machine if graphics aren't top priority and don't mind overpaying.

Nice compact size, power, display BD-ROM, free sheet battery

Two things I see that will cause major hips for power users ; 1). RAM: needs minimum 2GB per processor minimum, or that will bog the processor ; 2). For the money: I think this should have a serious graphics card offering from Nvidia or ATI(AMD)

Okay I have to list them, sound..could do way better, a lot better, I use the bluetooth jawbone and it sounds awesome or a set of beats. Build is good but you can't just toss it around like my think pad , take care of it and it will last

very poor support


I purchased a vaio vpc-z computer two years ago. The first machine would spontaneously reboot every 2-3 weeks. The first onsite repair left the machine unable to start. Over the next year the machine was returned 4-5 times. Turnaround was slow taking...

High resolution screen

Very high price and doubtful that justified by features. However, the real disaster comes if any support is required. A full description is in "other thoughts" but Sony support is simply awful
