Disadvantages: a little on heavy side
This is indeed a very excellent laptop from Sony and is very affordable. It has alot to offer to the quality of the machine.
I found the laptop to be a great alternative to the apple macbook for my university studies as a graphics/ digital designer.
Using software programs for the use of photo editing, illustration, website design and other programs that like to use ram can become very frustrating when only having little memory, but this VAIO laptop with its 1GB (2GB max) of DDR II memory is more that certainly cut out for the job, and Its got a large 15" inch widescreen crisp clear display that is capable of displaying almost all programs with no problems at all.
Conectivity to the laptop is very reasonable with four ubs ports and one fire wire port (4 pin), you will never be without a port spare. It also has two memory card readers (for SD and also MS) and an express card slot (as broadband internet become more freely mobile , its becoming more increasingly popular to have these ExpressCard broadband from providers as supposed to the usb alternative)
The battery live is also extremely excelent on This VAIO machine, with up to 3 and a half hours life on average use (internet, word, and playing music) and moderatly fast charging, you can't go wrong in choice.
Overall this laptop is fantastic for the average user, and students that don't have a big budget on the price of a machine, its not particually great with newer games, but runs most old games and classic games really well.
Summary: Great price and full of features, its the best alternative for students in digital design!
