When I left my job, almost tearfully I had to return my cracking £3000 IBM Thinkpad laptop. A hole was left in my heart but now after many months I have filled the void. After checking my credit card balance and then crying I decided it was time to spend, spend, spend. I wanted a laptop because of the portability, so I can watch DVD's when on the move and for my work. I also wanted something that matched the power and performance of my old £3000 laptop but with a (much) smaller price tag. I finally parted with my (not so) hard earned cash and placed my order for the Sony PCG-FX501. The laptop (or notebook - depending on your vocab) ... Read the complete review

The PCG-FX501 serves as an excellent entry-level notebook, boasting enough processing power to deal with any task you could reasonably ask a notebook to perform, such as word processing documents, spreadsheets and email-internet access. It runs with an AMD Duron 1.1GHz CPU, supported by 256MB of RAM and a 20GB Hard Drive split into two partitions, which basically means applications and data can be kept separate from each other. That's only really a concern for people that like setting up their systems that way as many PCs on the market today only have a single partition anyway. A cautionary note, however. The 501 comes with 4 ... Read the complete review

I had to get a laptop for my work, and in order to convince my boss that this was the one, I carried ot a study of all the laptops I could find in and around this price range. What I found was that no laptop packs this much punch at this price with so few compromises. I have to add a cautionary tale before I get too carried away. The first one I received had a problem that made the keyboard and touchpad work intermittently. Thankfully, it was quickly swapped out by the retailer. Sony have now acknowledged the problem and corrected in a BIOS upgrade. Any new machines should have this update already. The positive aspects of this laptop are as ... Read the complete review

I bought my PCG-FX501 about 6 months ago, and I'm delighted with it. It has many qualities not unusual in a laptop twice its price, and yet it still manages to come in at under a grand. I'd always wanted a laptop computer, and when I finally had the money to buy one, Sony was my brand of choice. They're always styled nicely, and previous experience with other Sony products has led me to believe that Sony produce well-built, high-quality items. I wasn't disappointed either. On opening the box, I found the laptop itself (duh), the mains adapter/charger and an 'egg box' containing assorted cables, CDs and manuals. The laptop was packaged very ... Read the complete review
