For those looking for a budget 17" laptop for play or work, look no further. This is perhaps the best laptop that balance performance, cost, battery life and reliability. Purchased this laptop 2 days ago from Frys, couldn't be happier. This is a list of my observations:

Pro:

1. Wonderful 17.3" Sony screen - one of the best in the industry. Very bright. Lots of space to work. My work machine has a 24" full HD screen and I don't miss it.
2. Super fast second generation Core i5 2.4GHz 2430M 2.4GHz with turbo boost to 3GHz, not the much slower Core i3 and one step above the Core i5 2.3GHz 2410M you see on most lower cost sandy bridge i5 laptops
3. Very rigit chasis - no flex at all for a 17" laptop, built quality is valut like - should provide many years of reliable protection. It is the BMW/Benz of laptops.
4. Extremely low power consumption - the 4000MAH battery will easily last 4-5 hours on light use - web surfing or working on office apps. I am very impressed.
5. Lightweight for a 17.3" laptop - it is quite easy to carry it around, especially since the long battery life means you can usually leave the power adapter at home.
6. There are TWO battery upgrade options - a 5300MAH battery (VGP-BPS26) which is the same size and weight as the included battery, but will last 7 hours instead of 5 hours, and a 9 cell, slightly heavier battery which is 7950MAH (VGP-BPL26) and 10 hours battery run-time.
7. Blu-Ray drive for watching HD movies. Never get a DVD for a 17" laptop. It is just not appropriate. Believe me you will want to watch Blu Ray on this machine.
8. 4xUSB ports, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, SD/MS slots, Wireless on-off switch
9. Wondeful multi-touch touchpad with pinch to zoom and other gestures
10.

Very very nice laptop, no complaints.

- True desktop replacement.
- The design and looks are great, very solid build and light to move around.
- The quality of the screen is amazing, blu-rays played flawlessly.
- Chiclet keyboard is very comfortable to type on.
- Performance is excellent for multimedia family use purposes.
- Integrated graphics card is no good for heavy graphics software like gaming but more than enough for everything else.
- It came with 4GB (4GB x 1) of ram and I replaced with 8GB (Kingston ValueRAM 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 KIT 4GB x 2) for faster multitasking and increased integrated graphics card sharing.
- Windows Experience Scores: Processor: 7.0, Memory (8GB RAM): 7.4, Graphics: 6.3, Game graphics: 6.3, Primary hard disk: 5.8
- Battery ran for 3 hours @ 2.40GHz full power no turbo boost and highest screen brightness.
- 4 usbs is great to have, we had 3 before and was always 1 short.
- 640 GB @ 5400 hard drive is more than enough space and speed.
- Speakers are good enough for a laptop. I have external speakers hooked up so I don't really use the internal ones.
- No bluetooth, no problem cause we have never used it on other laptops.
- Fans are on the quiet side.

All in all it was a perfect purchase at an incredible $599. If you don't want to spend much on an excellent family desktop replacement laptop with an amazing 17" screen you have to get this. Enjoy!

I purchased this about a week ago so I am really just getting fully into the ins and outs. I will add to this review in the next few months when I have really gotten into the nuts and bolts of the machine. I am using this as a desktop replacement, in my bedroom, so portability was never a consideration. It's actually lighter than my Dell Inspiron at about 6.5 pounds and is a snap to set up especially if you use the Windows transfer feature. It will let you use either a flash drive, USB transfer cord or even let you do it over your home network(takes a little more time). I transferred all of my old files and settings to the new machine in about an hour using a portable hard drive.

What really drew me to this particular model was the Sony name and the added bonus of an extra Blu-ray player. The Blu-ray drive uses Corel WinDVD BD software to play your discs. I put in The Twilight Zone and it loaded faster than my OPPO player, lol. I will update the review when I start playing some of the newer Java heavy discs and let you know how well it works/looks.

The first thing I recommend is upgrading the memory to 8GB from the factory shipped 4GB and here is what I purchased: Samsung MV-3T4G4 4GB DDR3 Laptop SDRAM (1333MHz PC3-10600) The machine absolutely flies and has so far updated most of the Sony shipped software through VAIO update(a nice little feature that compliments Windows update). As I stated earlier in the review, I have this in my bedroom and the network card has worked fine even about 50 feet or so away from my router and up a staircase. I have Verizon FIOS and use their router/modem combo unit which doesn't go below good/very good as far as reception.

This is my third Sony Vaio laptop, and my first Windows 7 machine.

I'm extremely pleased with this PC (which replaces a five-year-old laptop). Runs fast, has plenty of room (although I'm trying not to slow it down with too many programs, one of the things I tend to do to machines). Great display, too (although I would have preferred a matte screen -- hey, you can't have everything)! Very easy setup.

I managed to get a great deal on this, even better than what I'm seeing as current low prices, but even at the current low price, it's a good deal.
