This laptop is a great size with a 14" display. It is reasonably light and it is very aesthetically pleasing. It comes with a built in webcam and microphone which is very useful and saves the hassle of having to attach one each time. The laptop has handy buttons at the top such as volume control, ability to turn the display off and capture what is on screen. another plus side to the laptop is you can switch in on without having to boot the whole laptop up to view photos etc which is very handy when the family are round.
The laptop is very reliable i have been using it for a while now almost every day for a few hours each day and it has outlasted my old laptop.
The only downside to this laptop is the battery life, it lasts a maximum of 3 hours even on the Power saver option which makes the laptop screen brightness almost too dark to use.
Overall a very good laptop for reliability, looks and general usage such as web browsing, and word documents etc however i would not recommend it for gaming as it can be quite slow
the Sony Vaio CR42S/W is one of the most recent fourteen inch laptos from sony which packs a large amount of nicities capable of attracting anybody (but specially, women).
As happens with all sony laptops, the attention to detail is brilliant and the overall design of the laptop is stunning. The design is complemented by a good quality monitor and by some interesting specs. This model, for instance, includes a core 2 duo processor which runs at 2.1Ghz, 3Gb of ram and a large harddrive. Unfortunately, the graphic card is weak hence those of you who enjoy computer games, should stay away from this laptop.
In terms of size and weight, this laptop is able to surprise since it is quite light and small for a 14 inch laptop.
In terms of reliability, I can't really complain.My sister has this laptop and it is outlasting all previous laptops she has owned (generally, they don't survive the first month.)
Overall, the laptop is nice and easy to use. It is a bit girly, but I guess that was Sony's idea. Nonetheless, it is a good buy.
Whether you're studying at the coffee shop or out on the town with friends, the VAIO CR series has the head-turning looks to get you noticed. Bold and confident, its innovative design reflects your life, your look and your own unique style.
There are lots more to this notebook than just great looks. The VAIO CR series is surprisingly small and light, but still comes with all the power and performance you expect from a sophisticated notebook.
Thin and light, the VAIO CR series balances portability with the ease of use common to a mainstream-sized PC. The spacious display offers the room required to conveniently create and view your documents while the large keyboard provides a user-friendly touch and feel that makes for comfortable typing.
