This is supposed to be a gamer laptop but I have been editing video and working on my website and once you take a break and watch a blue-ray movie it is mesmerizing and gratifying to see every detail in animated action films. This is a tool for the professional so it is priced in the pro bracket but worth every penny. I have only had it for a couple of months but I cant find a fault
in this package. Even the battery holds up for about 5 hours. There is a higher capacity battery if you need one. It comes with plenty of software, even Sony editing software. I saved big with no tax and free shipping through Amazon. If you have a need for speed, quality, and portability this will fill the bill.
-The mouse pad placement can be a hassle when typing. I have opened and closed many windows randomly just by brushing my palm across it while typing. Easy fix here. Turn off the mouse pad and use another mouse.
-When using the laptop, if I type fast enough,Sony Vaio Care pops up, it can be a bit annoying.
-This laptop is huge! Heavy as well. This one is completely my fault though, as I wanted a laptop that was a bit bigger because I would lay on my bed and watch media on the laptop. Don't expect this to be very portable, it's not. For the most part it has remained on my desk due to the size.
But after a lot of research and comparison shopping, this is an incredibly solid laptop that will serve you well over the next several years. I have had no issues with it so far, expect for the above mentioned ones. The picture is truly incredible, and the speakers are high quality. This gaming laptop can very easily be turned into a media laptop due to both of those components. The upgrade to i7 is worth it in my opinion, you can feel how fast this laptop is with and it never misses a beat. I have had zero hangups while using it.
I also enjoy using it as a media hub to connect to my PS3, while I have had issues with the PS3 not liking to connect to the hub, or certain file types not playing on the PS3. I truly believe that is attributed more to the PS3 then the laptop itself.
The light up keyboard is a lifesaver, I cannot tell you how many early mornings I have sat in front of the screen and been able to type unimpeded because I knew exactly what key I was pressing.
I have around 10 devices hooked up through a USB hub to my laptop as well, and when I am running multiple devices, hang up has never occurred and device boot up is fast.
I am still exploring all the benefits this laptop has to offer, so if anyone wants to tell me what key features or programs I can check out, please let me know!
As I said I would not make this a grab and go laptop, but it is a very good stationary laptop. You will not be disappointed.
I have used this notebook for two months and two weeks so far. While installing some applications in the first week I noticed something was preventing full installation. So I uninstalled pre-loaded anti-virus software and replaced it with another one which came free with RoadRunner cable. Since then all applications installed smoothly. When purchasing this laptop I didn't pay much attention to pre-loaded software, but exploring the notebook I noticed it came with video-editing and music-editing applications. Therefore I didn't have to look for Windows7 upgrade of my old video-editing software. Also, as I'm interested in playing around with Miku-like vocaloid, I can use the pre-loaded music-editing software to compose background music to go with vocaloid. I already downloaded many free loops available at the applications websites but I need to learn more about composing.
The laptop automatically looks for updates of system and Vaio softwares and notifies you when available. I just had such a notice a week ago and when I click "intall", several updates were downloaded from Vaio sites and installed one by one into the laptop. My major use of this laptop so far (only two months) is for editing photos, images, videos, web-browsing while listening music, I haven't done any heavy stuff yet. But everything has been fast and smooth so far and I don't feel I need to add another 4GB RAM anytime soon. The Internet button is convenient. I push it to check email and browse the web for a short time after I come home from work during the weekdays. During the weekend I always keep the laptop on and put it in the sleep mode when not using. It wakes up quickly and wireless connection hasn't failed once. As this is my home pc, I disabled the touchpad. I always use a wireless mouse instead. I'm much more confortable placing the screen farther from my eyes than my arms reach, and this way also allows me to have a cup of tea or coffee and a snack or desert plate between the laptop and me, not worrying about spills and splashes. So far I'm very happy with my new Vaio.
