I bought this laptop a couple of years ago now and had a problem free experience for about 18 months. It was a good laptop to commence with - speedy and efficient. As soon as the warranty period was over however the problems seemed to commence.
The main problem was the screen went really dark. It turns out I needed a replacement part called an LCD invertor. Sony said they would replace it for me but it would cost almost half the value of the laptop to get it done and I would need to send it to them and it could take a few weeks. I ended up spending £40 and buying one from ebay - it took a week to arrive from America- but it worked - at least for 4 months until it broke again and I had to buy another replacement.
The power cable now does not charge properly and you have to angle the plug at the back of the laptop at a certain angle to get it to charge properly.
My dealings with Sony were a dreadful experience and they have tainted me against them. Their post-purchase help desk was awful - so now I no longer buy Sony - ever.
Summary: Never buy Sony.
