Physically, this isn't a tiny netbook. At 6 pounds, it's not something I'm going to be schlepping on airplanes, but that isn't what I bought it for. As always, the Vaio screen is lovely and bright, and widescreen. The ports seem to be well-placed. And the aesthetics are quite nice -- it's a brushed, fingerprint-resistant silver. It's really quite fast (no choking or hard drive whirring while loading programs, etc.) and it's extremely quiet. They keyboard took a little while to adapt to, but it's nice and roomy, with space between the keys. The touchpad works well, and the DVD drive is also smooth and quiet. The HDMI port works as it should with my LCD tv.
I haven't tested battery life as I don't plan to use this as an on-the-go machine.
I didn't know much of what to expect from Windows 7, and while this isn't a Windows 7 review, it works smoothly on this machine. Most of my Windows XP software works, with a few exceptions.
As usual, Sony packs in way too much preinstalled crap on their laptops, and I really wish they wouldn't, but I guess that's the price of buying a machine like this. I do wish they'd include a disc to let you install this stuff, rather than requiring that you uninstall it. Surprisingly though, Google Chrome is one of the preinstalled programs, so it is good to have a decent browser right out of the box. One thing Sony doesn't include much of at all is written documentation. Other than a tiny Getting Started booklet, all the documentation is on the machine itself.
Overall, I'm pleased with this computer so far. For the price, you are getting a near-desktop replacement that happens to be a laptop.
The body is "textured", so fingerprints and smudges don't show up; it still looks like new. There is no "ten key" keypad on the keyboard, which means that the keys are spaced with just a bit more room to make typing more comfortable. The keys themselves have a solid feel, and no rattle or wiggle. The touchpad is also texturized, not too glassy.
The screen is bright and crisp, a joy for watching movies. The "one touch web access without booting up" feature is nice, so it can act like my iphone I suppose -- easy to quickly check email without having to power it all up.
I've used it while plugged in and on battery power, and it stays cool enough to rest on my bare legs.
The extra junk software about which others complain -- just wipe out and reinstall the operating system before using it; the free stuff won't re-appear.
Textured body, solid keyboard, crisp screen. Good overall tactile "feel."
A bit heavier than others.
Overall, its a good product. It is my second VAIO, my work laptop is a Dell, and I've had WINBOOK and HP in the past too. So far, SONY appears to consistenly make a good product that stands up to wear and tear. I would recommend this laptop to friends!!
My 4-and-a-half-year old Toshiba XP laptop "died" last week, despite one or two "revivals." So the hunt for a new laptop was on. (I'm still trying to revive it, because it was working fine until it started into an endless cycle of safe mode and never opened. Need to find an XP system disc. Never had because software comes loaded.)
At a minimum, I wanted at least 3 USB ports, one HDMI and the "usual suspects" (4GB Ram, hard drive not all that important as I no longer want to keep ANYTHING on a system drive!) and card readers, CD/DVD drive (but that was optional if the unit was lite enough to use as netbook).
As someone who has had several Toshiba laptops that performed well and which I liked for their great screens and keyboards--and sound, I started with those models. I found one with generally strong reviews (except for a critical area), the 135-1310 (1309 retail version at best buy). I wanted to love it. It was heavy with features but lite in weight and size, enough so that one could use it as netbook.
But I had read the reviews and folks complained about the touchpad and the buttons. So, I headed to Best Buy for some on-site testing. Yea. All those folks? They were correct. I could not picture myself using it without going mad and getting carpal tunnel. (Yes you can use an external mouse but I don't want to buy something that doesn't work "as is"). Plus the thing was in this icky, shiny (glared in my eyes!), horrible material and style. (Young kids looking at it hated it, too!)
I had set a price point of around $599, slightly higher if it had bluetooth (but then you can always add for like $40 bucks via USB).
