Advantages: Are intouch with important emails.
Me and my husband bought the Sony VAIO VGN-FE41Z series laptop three months ago by calling at call centre. We by experience came to conclusion that using call centre for the order is better because you can ask them for any offer or even free delivery. My husband is a GP so he needed a laptop for only work. So we both selected this laptop with mobile technology. I found this laptop best as it has some special features like built in camera, microphone and blue tooth. This Sony laptop has Intel centrino, Duo with windows vista . Sky pe is also installed. I selected screen size 15.4”. Memory is 2 GB.
Adobe Photoshop premiere Element already installed in the laptop.
When I first opened the laptop ,the touch just said its quality. The X-black LCD with double lamp widescreen was stunning and impressive. The graphics can never be found in any other computer . Every part itself saying that it belongs to the Sony and Sony are the best.
I chat with my sis’ in US using built in camera . I used yahoo chat instead of Skype because yahoo is free and Skype has charges and Skype can be use with broadband and also when some one on the other side also use broadband. Other wise its function is disturbing.
Disadvantages are when comparing with Dell, no disc is supplied for already installed software like Windows vista is installed and no disc is provided in case any damage is done to laptop . So we can not reinstall the windows or adobe photo shop .
I paid for Microsoft word. Dell provide Disc for windows and word and also for each and every software installed.
We incur with the problem within two weeks but we dealt with that I want to share that too in case it might help some body
One day (it was not even two weeks) when I tried to log on my laptop its windows start up and then suddenly screen went black and it seemed like dead .I did try to start again but it just produce clicking sound and no more move. I was shocked and got worried .It is such an expensive, brand new and latest model .what should I do now. But I was not very worried as It was covered by business warranty ,so I thought to contact to Sony and get my laptop repaired but before that I wanted to do what ever I could do my self and so contact my friend who set up my laptop and also my Dell computer. He is an expert in the computer and it is his profession too. I followed his advice. The solution was so simple that no body will believe .Any body can do this. So I thought if any body come across with the same problem should not end up paying or be fooled by anybody.
Laptops are actually are more delicate and sensitive than desktop computers. The laptops has more powerful defensive system than desktop computers against invaders.
When any problem accord like windows went switch off automatically, screen turns blank, laptop did not turn on or suddenly turn of automatically while running. The reason could be any one and might possibly be cured by:-
(First check that it is not due to need of charging)
Take out all the other connections from the laptop
Then slowly take out those batteries which are inserted in the laptop all the time.
Then leave the laptop this way about at least an hour.
After an hour insert back the batteries in the place . And slowly turn on the power button and amazingly this simple trick helped and reset the laptop .
What my friend told me and also I concluded that there might be a virus invaded through internet and tried to infect the hard drive. The self defence system of laptop automatically went to “sleep” to save it self from damage.
Then when we take out the battery from the laptop ,the internal power set to zero as there were no supply of current by any mean for some time and when reinsert the battery in the laptop like the first day, it is back to normal and get out of “sleep” mode. There might be other technical clarification but as I am no expert I just guessed it my self.
I have done this twice as this happened to my laptop twice and both the time it did work.
And I am sure it will work for every one the same as it did to me. And I am really happy to get my Sony VAIO laptop back and working and also because Bond also use the same one and I am sure he does know the same solution if problem occur !
I know the problem occur due to my fault it had nothing to do with the Sony and the problem was resolve. I was not worried because the laptop I bought was quite expensive so I get 4 years cover. Now even after 3 to 4 months it is working nicely and smoothly . I am happy with our choice
Windows Vista is the new feature but it is very much similar to Windows XP . All of the software are compatible l(I am talking about only which I use )like, Adobe Photoshop ,yahoo,MS Word, MSN and all the other common features we use in every day life. I only use basic as I am not very expert in Computers.
Summary: The laptops are best ,we can carry with us while travelling also
