colour and size fine

I don't find it a good machine - more like an old model in a new case. too much pre loaded ads on machine Nothing much new about it other than the case colour. Battery life is appauling. Very disappointed in Sony.

Light and fast. The assist function is an excellent feature, as is the regular VAIO updates service. This is the best Laptop I have ever had by far, having been a Toshiba fan for many years. I read some good reviews in various pc magazines, and...

Sony Vaio VPC-CW2S1E

 

the keyboard design is very comfortable to use. i thought the shiny covering and particularly the 'wrist rest area would get finger-marked but it doesn't and is soft on the wrists when typing. now i have matching mouse and speakers!

onesmall thing - when occasionally using the inbuilt mouse pad (normally use wireless mouse) i keep managing to decrease/increase the screen size in error. it's easy to click back to 100%, but not sure exactly what finger-movement combination does it!
