This Vaio, even though it only has HD 3000 graphics, has run Guild Wars 2, Fallout New Vegas, World of Warcraft, and Skyrim very well. Granted, it will not perform like an i7 with 8 gigs of RAM backed up by a 1 gig Radeon HD 6770, but I maintain 30 fps on Guild Wars 2 in the larger battles.
Heat is rarely an issue. I have monitored the temperature of the laptop and it has reached a max. temp of 68 degrees Celsius thus far during heavy gaming.
The sleep ---> wake cycle is really fast, and I am happy with the battery life (~3 hours if I don't do anything crazy with it). I have gotten compliments on it (Mostly that it looks like a MacBook pro... At a fraction of the cost, LOL). The chiclet keyboard is very much like the keyboard on my old MBP, and I like it quite a lot. I can't speak to others' concerns about the trackpad as I always use a Micro USB wireless Darkfield mouse but the few times I have used the trackpad, it hasn't been something where I was like, "Oh man, this is horrible!" So... if a track pad is really that important to you, I guess you can look elsewhere?
Anyway, for the money, this is a solid performer that not only runs well, but also LOOKS good, and really, when it comes down to brass tacks... we all like a stylish product.
(1) Resolution is Gorgeous for Movies and Photos (I was worried B4 purchases b/c i use to have ATI Radeon graphics card)
(2) Not to heavy, Thin but lengthy so I can not slip it my Purse
(3) Keys feel great, Normal. The number pad on the side is heaven. But The keys sit on cheap plastic material. If i press down to hard i feel like ill break it. NO COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE MOUSE. Very Normal with option of clicking. (Loud clicker)
(4) Looks Gorgeous, Love the style
(5) Sounds good. I dont blast it, but music is good sound for me. wouldnt recommend it for musician. Very quiet machine and doesnt get hot in my lap.
(1) Might just be windows 7, but I keep getting pop-ups
(2) Comes with NO decent software and barely any Sony Software
(3) Start up time is nearly 1 Minute upon purchase.. hhhmmmm weird b/c I thought you were the competitor of MAC
(4) Loud mouse clicker, but other mouse settings are easily adjustable
I give it 3.5 stars just because its a bang for your buck 549.00
6 month later i am still pleased with this laptop. "student use daily" 3 stars is sufficient.
After start up, I tried to install normal programs, iTunes, CCleaner, FireFox, etc. The installation process took forever and kept freezing to where I had to use Task Manager to close the programs. I then started to delete the Sony software which took another 45 minutes. That did the trick where I was finally able to install standard programs. While I understand Sony's desire to have an all-in-one viewing experience, I don't see a reason to have a PS3 remote on a laptop.
But the installation process wasn't bad enough. The touchpad is flat out awful. There is no native right-click and instead of opening in "new tabs," I am almost always opening something in the same tab. Very, very annoying to navigate. Forget about scrolling with the touchpad, I found it easier to use the up & down arrow keys. Most annoying aspect of the touchpad is that sometimes, some links or programs would require a single click to open, others a double click. It all depends on where you tap the touchpad.
The keyboard is comfortable but a little slow. The backlight is very nice.
Overall, the computer feels very flimsy. The power button has required multiple pushes to turn on, you have to hit it directly from above and not at an angle to work. While typing this review, I noticed that the weight of my wrists feel like it is going to break the area below the keyboard. I am sitting on my bed as I type this so my wrists are, by default, on resting on the keyboard.
Simply stated, stay about from this machine unless you want to spend upwards of an hour removing bloatware and having a horrible touchpad experience.
I will be returning this.

This is a great laptop for those with eye problems, since the keys are illuminated and easier to see in low light. The only thing I don't like is the mouse pad. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Californi Deni

This is my first Vaio. After using it for several months, I have to say this will not be my last. The coloring is a fantastic shade of a silvery gunmetal. Read morePublished on February 3, 2013 by X429
