 A Fantastic Laptop

| | See all bhold24's reviews (1)

I'm not great at grammar and punctuation. But I will give an honest review. I have given the laptop 5 stars because I found it to be exactly what I wanted, The laptop is fast and makes everyday browsing and viewing multimedia easy and painless. I had been reading other reviews on many other laptops, which I found very interesting but I wanted to get a Sony Vaio and this was the one. The Screen his 1080p, Blu rays look amazing, I Am Legend,The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,We Were Soldiers, Up and many more look truly fantastic, The display is stronger on this than some of the weaker E Series, The brightness is great and you do get a really good picture with it. The Processor is fast and powerful and really there is nothing else to say about it the new set of Intel processors really are great. Apparently there has been a humming noise when in battery mode, I have not experienced this and havn't had any problems with the fan either. The two things I do find abit annoying is the touchpad sometimes can be abit sketchy, It isn't the best touchpad I have used and sometimes(rarely) I miss what I want to click on because it wobbles for some reason. The multi touch is basic and not exactly up to the standard I would expect from a brand like sony, Lastly the speakers are fine they are the best speakers in the world but im afraid the only way to get really great speakers on a laptop is pay the price. I use this laptop for gaming, I mainly play World in Conflict, The graphics card isn't the best but in my eyes it's better than what notebookcheck.com have said about it. It plays WIC beautifully and I have high settings on 1280x720. Which looks great. You can play it on 1080p but you have to put the settings down to meduim. Games like call of duty 4 run well and also I have heard CODMW2 looks great and runs smoothly on meduim settings. The laptop is a fantastic bargain and it really is a compromise if you can't fork out the extra money for the F series, Which I orginally wanted but I can say I'm very happy with what I have. If you are experienced with computers, I really think you should reinstall windows on this laptop, due to sony putting loads of software you won't need on the laptop. The sony software is good but there are programs you won't need.
Overall I would give this laptop a 4.5, The Glossy black doesn't have the glittery bits you would find on the white E series, but it still has a nice detail to it.It's not heavy and I carry it everywhere I go. The screen is great, The processor is fantastic and the Graphics card is powerful enough for a gamer that doens't mind the highest spec, You will be able to play most things on this laptop on low to high settings as long as you don't mind playing around with it for a while. Thanks and I hope you like this laptop as much as i do.
