Sony Vaio VPC-EB2Z0E


Easy to set up. Keyboard excellent.....the keys are well spaced so easy to touch-type and good support for the wrists when wordprocessing a long document. Overall very satisfied and meets my expectations.

Knew battery life not great but mostly use with access to power supply so not a big issue for me. There is quite a lot of reflection on the screen when using the laptop with a window behind me - even when the sun is not shining!

Good value, build quality.

bluray - not supported under Linux. Touchpad goes weird after a long time of use. Lid easily scratches. Screen resolution is far too low.
