Sony Vaio VPC-EB2M0E


Good value for money and nice graphics

Very loud fan noise even though there are no hardware faults. The laptop is almost one year old ad causing lots of troubles like freeZing and tremendous fan noise. Customer service is not good overall

Fantastic machine to use i have used Dell,Toshiba etc but this has to be the one on top . Its easy to use setting up programmes and transferring data is so easy and browsing the Web etc is fast i would definitely recommend this machine.

Sony Vaio VPC-EB2M0E


Nice design. Perfect for home use.

The fan is too noisy. Too much space was partitioned to install windows & VAIO softwares. I'm left with 287GB from 320GB.

A very easy to use laptop, really like the separate number keybord and the quality seems very good. We bought this to replace a tired laptop and it has been a great improvement.
