This laptop is possibly one of the best choices around. I got it as a work tool but it has been intensively used for all sort of functions, from long hours of work, to photo manipulation with memory consuming softwares, to viewing movies with great quality in one of the most amazing screens I have seen in a laptop. I agree price is the greatest handicap and it is certainly not accessible for all, but who really wants a lasting laptop with decent portability hours (at least 4 hours with word processor and some excell documents open) this is a great option. The keyboard is the best I have seen, and to prove how good it is Apple has started using this keyboard in all its laptops and desktops! It has two processors, one for long lasting hours and another battery consuming but with excellent performances. The trackpad is quite good and I like the fingerprint reader. The main problem is the fact that it is so good and looks so nice that it is highly attractive for robbers!
I have used a number of laptops - but this is the first one that I have bought for myself and I have to say I am impressed! Not the cheapest of laptops - but it is stylish and it does the job. Mine is in a silver colour and fits easily in my small travel bag when I go away on business trips. I have found it easy to navigate and work my way around. You can put it on hibernate if you don't wish to turn it off and shut down your work - it takes only a few seconds to start back up whilst in this mode. I am not overly technical but therefore it speaks volumes that I have had no issues with this laptop - which I have now had for over a year. The screen quality is good.
The only downside is that the battery only lasts about 25 mins when actively using and then you have to charge it up - but perhaps this is normal for most laptops. I do find this aspect inconvenient however.
Overall - no problems with this laptop and I would certainly recommend it as a buy.
This Sony Vaio is slim, sleek and very edgy!
The full color screen is very clear and has a great definition. Its very glossy and makes for a great viewing experience.
In terms of speed and compatibility, this Sony proves to be at its best with this laptop. Good quality functionality combined with a speedy delivery. Its great for both working from home if not at the office and for my children to play on. Seems sturdy and high quality, compared to others in this price range.
The weight of the laptop is slightly heavier than i expected, but the functionality and looks make up for the difference.
In terms of memory the laptop has enough for work use, any hey, if you run out theres always the option to upgrade!
A great buy. One for both work and family life, good value and good quality, what more can you ask for!
Among the VAIO Z series' best in class capabilities is a revolutionary 13.1'' LCD display.
Scratch-proofed and anti-glare, it delivers true-to-life color fidelity and extra wide 1600 x 900 resolution for deeper contrast and truly natural realization. With its carbon fiber casing the VAIO Z series notebook weighs less than 1.5kg, so it could hardly be easier to carry. Carbon fiber is lighter than traditional computer construction materials. Yet as you'd expect of a material more commonly used in aviation and formula one, it is also stronger.
