Worth every penny for performance and ease of use. Instant web button is a great when you want to check e-mails quickly. Keyboard very comfortable to use and the large colour screen is brilliant for watching movies, viewing photographs etc.
Having 6mb ram as you would expect gives an excellent performance.
VAIO assist is a very good feature for solving any problems and you also get a good discount on McAfee security software subscription (recommended by SONY)
Be aware that the laptop is a little bit heavy due to the screen size. Also the battery soon discharges if you maintain the maximum performance settings although you can buy a replacement battery that offers a longer charge (why can't SONY fit this as standard?)
Do consider paying that bit extra for this laptop - PLAY.com offer this at least 50 pounds sterling cheaper than the competition - I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
