I bought this laptop in 2006 and still am using it without any problems what so ever.
I mostly use it now for word processing, email, pictures and watching films - all things it can handle easily.
I used to also use it for gaming - the built in graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400) stands up to the challenge of most games. I used to play a lot of Battle field 2 on this laptop and it looked impeccable.
I have had now problems with this laptop for the past 6 years, it has never crashed or need a reinstall of the operating system.
The x-black LCD screen is great for pictures and movies and really shows off the contrast of DVDs etc.
All in all a brilliant laptop and seeing as though I bought it for £900, its a bargain at around £55 now!
Also, I would say that if you're looking for a new laptop to last you then any sony vaio is likely to be a long term purchase and well worth that extra for the brand.
