Advantages: Big screen, long life
Disadvantages: Overheating, bulky
I have had the VGN-NS20E (pink) for about three years now, which isn't too bad considering many laptops only seem to have a lifespan of a year or two. Three members of my family have the same one and mine has definitely had the most use so there are a few problems now but in general for a first year or so it was fast, had enough memory and the screen being bigger is good as long as you aren't planning to take it around too much - it is quite heavy and bulky so not the most portable. I originally bought this because of the power cable at the back as I have had quite a few problems with the slot for the power cable breaking with other laptops. I have had to replace the battery for this (and a Sony battery puts you back quite a bit - about £100) but the battery still lasts less than an hour. I also have a huge problem with overheating - it is quite old but it heats up a lot after just being on a few minutes. So if you aren't planning on transporting this around and you don't use the computer a huge amount, this is a good purchase as it seems to last quite a long time with a bit of TLC.
Summary: Long life, few problems
