5.0 out of 5 stars I have had my Vaio since the beginning of August..., September 1, 2012
By 
This review is from: Sony VAIO E Series SVE15112FXS 15.5-Inch Laptop (Aluminum Silver) (Personal Computers)
and I love it. I have had many laptops, from just about every manufacturer, including HP / Compaq, Gateway, Apple, Dell, and Toshiba. I am hard on my laptops. I have high expectations for them... not only do I do basic computing on them, like web browsing and e-mail, but I also tend to play games on them. A lot.

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.
