Great Laptop and lightweight

 

Resolution on this laptop is great! Is like working on a full desktop screen where you can have to window side by side. (with enough rooms). I do a lot of excel, pdf and other document which I need the extra resolution to sometime put it side by side....

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)

Where style matters

 

Sony has an unblemished reputation in the electronic industry and this did not prove wrong with my Sony Vaio as well. I bought a Sony Vaio Z214GX L:2.7 GHz core i7 recently as I wanted something advanced and stylish as my old dual 2 core was not...

Display! speed! And ports! This machine is a beast, the trackpad has no issue, the keys are shallow but easy to adjust to. This machine is in a class by its own, the comment about the Zenbook, no way, you can't hook up multiple monitors, the speed is...

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

Good comp overall

 

It is an ultra-light yet powerful laptop. Quite elegantly designed. Only one con that I can see: audio is lacking.

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
