      Lightweight, compact and simply a pleasure to use

      This is great laptop for everyone. It is very easy to sue and is relatively cheap for what it is. I have owned this laptop for little over a month now and it is by far the best one i have ever owned. I am not technically minded so I cant provide you with specifications on the laptop, but it is fast and reliable.

      This laptop is excellent for people who like to use social networking sites and generally surfing the web. I personally do a lot of work on this laptop, because i like the small keypad which works well with me.

      I find this laptop very easy to travel with because it is small and easy to pack, great for people who like to travel. I bought my laptop new for a little under £250 and it is well worth it in my opinion.

      The laptop holds its battery life very well, more than i would have expected from such a small laptop. Most only last for about an hour or so but this holds charge for anything up to two and a half hours, dependent on what you are using it for.

      My laptop is in white but i think it is available in a number of colors. It has a built in web cam which is handy for people who like to take videos or talk to people online.

      All in all i think this is one of the top net books around, and the support by sony is second to none. I think that to have a product and excellent service by its makers is very important, so if you ever do have any problems or questions you can always contact them and they will help you right away.

      Anyone who is looking for a simple, no drama laptop to surf the web with and complete daily activities, you should really consider this laptop!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A useful small netbook to do things such as surf the internet or write a word document

      I've had my Sony VAIO for about six months now, and I absolutely love it. At the beginning it seemed to load a bit slowly, especially the internet, but I believe that's probably due to the fact that I was so used to a faster laptop before that, that this can be a little bit annoying for perhaps the first couple of weeks, but then you get used to it. Other good points are that it is small and so can easily be carried around whether to work, or to lectures at uni. I also found that it is relatively quiet compared with the bigger laptop that I had before, and it also does not get very hot at the bottom, so its fine to place on your lap for lengthy periods of time. It's useful if all you need to do is use the internet or Microsoft word or excel and so on.

      Perhaps the only downside is that it is not big enough to incorporate a dvd/cd player, so you have buy that separately and attach it as and when you need to, but again that's not a huge problem. Also if you go from using a bigger laptop to this tiny one, all the words and so on are quite small, and watching videos on it is also as you can imagine is small, and this might be something that irritates some people and may not be good for your eyes, but again it is something that you get use to after a while. The only other thing which some may find unappealing is that the battery sticks out, but I've found that it's quite useful in acting as a stand, and it's not a hindrance at all. Overall, a good product, and also very cute and attractive!
