2 years with this,
This review is from: VAIO VPCF121FX/B I7-740QM 1.73GSYST4GB 500GB BDROM 16.4IN W7HP 1YR (Personal Computers)
This is the second Sony Viao I had purchased, and have owned it for two years.
Pros: I7 processor, blueray, HDMI port, nvidia gforce graphics card is sweet, vivid colors, large screen. Worked well for 3d games. Web cam, on board microphone. Back lit keyboard. Durable, I've dragged it to a few countries and taken it out of my home on bumpy car rides at least 100 times.
Cons: The processor and the graphics card run at over 190F! Even when sitting an a dual fan Targus Laptop Chill Mat. I am not kidding! You can keep a cup of coffee hot but putting it next to the vent. Weight, it is heavy 6.4lbs. Sony chocks it full of software you will never need, never use, and have a difficult time uninstalling. The speakers are never loud enough.
About Sony: they do make a good product. I have never had a problem with customer service. I still use my first one, a five year old Sony Viao VGN-NS140E to watch streaming movies on Hulu Plus.
