It comes pre-installed with the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium and it includes Microsoft Office Starter 2010 with limited-functionality versions of Word and Excel (learn more below).

Bold and Bright

Developed by the same people you trust to engineer amazing flat-panel HDTVs, this laptop features exceptional picture quality. The 15.5-inch (1366 x 768) widescreen display includes an LED backlight that helps ensure a bright display with lower power consumption for improved battery life.

Rapid Wake

With Sony's Rapid Wake technology, you never have to shut down your computer again. Whether you are done working for the day or just heading out to get some coffee, simply close the lid to put your PC into sleep mode. Then, when you're ready to start again, resume in 2 seconds with your data safe and secure. If you are unplugged, don't worry about draining your battery. Your PC can stay in sleep mode for days.

Take It to the Big Screen

Whether you're watching stunning high definition content or enjoying video captured from your compatible camcorder, you can play back HD content on your compatible big screen HDTV with a high level of resolution. An HDMI output delivers both your video and audio via a single HDMI cable (sold separately), providing the optimal digital connection to your HDMI-enabled HDTV so you can enjoy HD entertainment on the big screen without a myriad of extra cables and wires. Or if you just need to connect an external monitor, use the VGA port for a simple connection.

Simple Multi-Gesture Touchpad

The multi-gesture touchpad is the most intuitive way to interact with your laptop. Scroll with two fingers, pinch to zoom in and out of images, swipe to flip through pages or photos, rotate an image, and much more. And rather than clicking on a button, just click on the left or right mouse areas in order to activate those functions.

Listen Up

The integrated stereo speakers utilize the Clear Phase and xLoudClear Phase technologies, which delivers a richer, bolder and louder presence. xLoud technology enhances speaker volume without sacrificing quality.

Night Shift

Practical innovation is a cornerstone of Sony's vision, and our keyboards are no exception. The keyboard features precisely engineered keys to create a comfortable and intuitive typing experience. When typing in dim light, an LED backlight creates a pleasant glow, framing the individual keys and illuminating the lettering to make it even easier to find the right keys.

Not Just for Video Chatting

A built-in 1.3-megapixel HD web camera offers superb video conferencing quality. Powered by an Exmor sensor, this HD web camera offers amazing low-light performance and includes face tracking technology that allows the camera to automatically adjust and keep you in focus as you move about.

And with certain programs, you make hand gestures in front of your camera to skip songs, turn pages, or turn the volume up.

The Handiest Port Around

Forgot to charge your phone or MP3 player? Just plug your device via USB cord into the USB sleep charge port and start charging. Even if the PC is shut down and not plugged in, you can still use it. And don't forget that the USB 3.0 port is perfect for connecting a compatible external hard drive and allowing you to wait less and transfer data up to 10x faster than USB 2.0.

I like the backlit keyboard, the processor is fast and the laptop has a good design.

The Touchpad: I don't really use one as I'm used to a mouse but I did try it out on a job that required lots of selecting options and hitting submit buttons.

I had to get a new mid-priced Laptop to replace the family one my kid is now taking to college so the research began. I wanted an i5 CPU for good speed, at least 6gigs of ram (which seems to be the minimum "sweet spot" requirement to run Win7)and I wanted to stay under $600.00. I looked at them all and this one kept coming to the top with it's combination of specs, features and good looks.

We got it two days ago and we couldn't be happier! Setup was a snap, bloatware was minimum, it's fast and the graphics look fantastic. We played a couple of YouTube band videos, they looked as good or better than my big gaming computer (I built myself) and the sound was decent of course no matter what anyone says bass just ain't gonna happen on teensey laptop speakers but these do sound pretty good for everyday listening. I like the music & video editing software that comes with it too.

Highly recommended.

I studied specs and repair records about laptops for months before buying this laptop. It didn't have to be attractive or sleekly designed. It did have to be blazingly fast and have half-way good graphics for a decent price. When I opened the box and took out my laptop, I was thrilled. Not only is it top of the line for this cost and blazingly fast, it's also sleek, well-made and gorgeous. The lighted keyboard is fantastic, and my typing has really improved now that I'm not constantly guessing at the keys in poorly lit areas.

This laptop doesn't heat up as much as my AMD powered ASUS does. The keyboard is very responsive and a lot easier on the fingers than others I've used.

The Touchpad: I don't really use one as I'm used to a mouse but I did try it out on a job that required lots of selecting options and hitting submit buttons. How very cool! One tiny tap of the finger does both jobs.

I was, frankly, astounded when I found a laptop this powerful at this price. It has a third-generation i5 processor, 6GB RAM and a 640 GB Hard Drive. It's got a fabulous software package for music and video and other great Sony software.

I had considered other machines with second-generation i5 processors, but the second-gen graphics are not anywhere near as good as the third-gen. No, you'll still need a dedicated graphics card to do serious gaming, but otherwise the graphics are great.

Read the specs and reviews for other Sony laptops and compare them with any other laptop on the market at this price range. Then make your own decision. Don't let someone's tale of a software issue turn you away from an outstanding machine at a really good price. The E-series was rated one of PC Magazine's Top Ten Laptops, where it is the only machine below $1000. It was also a PC Magazine Editor's Choice. Link to PC Mag to read more.

After a lot of research, I decided to settle on a sony vaio. I couldn't believe it was almost a hundred dollars below its original price, but I went ahead and bought it, and I'm seriously glad I did. It's perfect, I can carry it around, runs smoothly, great design. Battery is good - I can get about five hours I think (I'm not sure, I wasn't really paying attention but it was for a decent time before I had to charge it again!)

The touchpad is a little unresponsive sometimes, but I use a mouse anyway. Overall a great buy!

Pros; Looks good. Mechanically and functionally good. I'm warming to Win 7.
Cons; No installation disc. No owner's manual, not even digitally. Full of proprietary bloatware and crap.
If you have an installation disc and are OK with doing a clean install it is a nice laptop. If not you may want to look elsewhere.

I didn't expect much from this laptop given that I paid $579.99 for it. But as soon as opened the box and started using it I was very surprised. The computer is very nice-looking, has a beautiful design and it's thinner than most laptops in the same range (like Toshibas).

PROS:

-Great, beautiful design. Very sleek and not so heavy for a 15.5" laptop
-Backlit keyboard, a VERY useful feature, much more than you can imagine
-The bottom is cool most times, you can perfectly use it in your laps comfortably
-It's very quiet. Normally you would only hear the hard drive in a quiet environment. Whenever the computer needs more power and starts processing more, the fans start to run faster, although they aren't loud
-It comes with Sony Vegas, ACID and SoundForge pre-installed. Not bad at all
-The brushed aluminium lid is nice-looking, but it's a fingerprint magnet and it's kind of hard to get rid of the oily fingerprints

CONS:

-Bloatware. It comes with SO many VAIO programs and most of them are totally useless. There should be the option of downloading these programs if desired (like Samsung does with their PCs) instead of coming already installed and running on the backgroung taking a lot of RAM and processing power. VAIO Content Manager and Analysis Manager are two totally useless Sony-marketing programs that take a lot, I mean, A LOT of resources, so much that the computer starts to heat up and running the fans at max speed. Make sure to turn all their features off, since you cannot uninstall them (at least not easily). I did uninstall all the unnecessary rest of Vaio software.
-The trackpad comes with a weird configuration that makes it not so responsive.
