Elegant and fast at fair price, light


I bought this one for my daughter, who was using a lower model from SONY. This new one is perfect for a college student, very light. The screen is crispy sharp, a must for notebook. I replaced the 5400 rpm HD wiht Plextor 256 GB SSD, so boot time is...

I've been a loyal Sony customer for years. On this model, I was burned by the fan, had to turn up the volume to cover the noise of the fan, and had the bezel pop off around the screen. Definitely not buying another Sony any time soon!

Fan overheated, noisy, flimsy

Defective Vaio
