A very impressive machine that is packed full of great features

Sony Vaio VPC-F11M1E

 

Very versatile in its ability to interface with other components

The updates for the PMB utility sometimes cause the computer to crash. It would be much more useful to include a program such as Photoshop and Premier elements in place of the rather poor PMB photo and video editing package.

Sony Vaio VPC-F11M1E

 

Fast processor, good graphics card, full HD resolution screen Nice keyboard, able to run games like Crysis 2 at full spec. If this system was built into a HP style casing or Apple style body it would be much much better. Battery life is short but...

For the cost the build quality is not as good as it could be; it feels very plastic and very fragile, It replaced a similar HP laptop, which though plastic was of a higher density plastic. Why not use aluminium? Not enough USB ports:2 only and they...

Nice design, good screen and good performance

Battery doesn't last very long and the CD/DVD tray is flimsy (a simple slot mechanism would be better)

Excellent machine when it works. Fast and copes extremely well when multi-tasking.

Spent a total of 4 weeks away at the repair shop. Sony support and how they deal with problems leaves a lot to be desired.

Sony Vaio VPC-F11M1E

 

Generally pleased with the product. Good display of graphics, still images and moving images. Good responsive keyboard. Adequate stereo speakers for a laptop PC.

Cannot run the computer from mains ac power supply without insertion of the battery. No dedicated hardware button for volume up and volume down. Occasionally the scroll up/down and scroll left/right facility of the touch pad does not function properly.
