Advantages: Speed, Memory, Storage, Capability, Compatibility
Disadvantages: No Firewire Port
This Sony vaio laptop is defiantly one of the laptops of my choice. The reason being is because of its speed, portability and usage. Being a notebook does not mean you have to sacrifice speed, more with this model it boosts the speed.
With an Intel Centrino 2 platform is a big boost meaning in simple terms than it is specially designed for mobile performance, extended battery life, increased wifi capabilities and generally faster. You get Bluetooth, Stereo speakers, and Wifi LAN meaning you can connect up to your work/school/home network wirelessly.
Being just a feeble 3.8kg lets you take it anywhere without it weighing you down.
The notebook also comes with a very reward able 2.8GHz Core 2 Duo Intel processor which makes things run much fast than expected and on top of that a massive 4 GB ram which can be replaced with an 8 GB ram, all in a notebook! We are talking desktop specs in a notebook! Having a 64-bit capability lets you use that extra ram much more effectively and easily as well.
Storage is Serial ATA not Sata so not much changing there. What really surprises me is that Sony have managed to put a 500gb hard drive in this notebook without weighing it down. 500gb hard drive is normally what you would have in a mid range desktop computer so Sony really have not lacked in storage and performance but just made it all lighter and fit in a smaller space.
This lets you write CDs at very fast speeds, which is very much appreciated if you are a mobile DJ. It has the normal full card reader letting you transfer pictures from literally all card storage including USB. Sony have put a widescreen and very high resolution on top of all this giving an amazing screen quality experience for all those gamers and media enthusiasts out there, you get high definition audio and home cinema capabilities as well so no lack on the sound capabilities either by Sony.
You get an inbuilt camera and touch sensitive keyboard and number pad and touch mouse pad aswell, the keys are not crammed together either letting you type like on a normal desktop keyboard.
Let alone all the battery life expansions and technology Sony have put into this net book you get a 2 hour run time which is pretty decent for a laptop though. Windows 7 and much more security software ect is included in this so no extra costs to pay for, the one thing I don't like about this laptop is no fire wire port, this generally speaking is not used much but is a bit of a blow for media enthusiasts, apart from that slight drawback everything else works really well.
Summary: Very nice compact laptop but not lacking on performance capabilities
