Top 10 PC Reviewer

Before I start I would like to point out that this is my second Sony Vaio laptop
Had this laptop nearly a month now and I'm still really impressed with it.
I'm rather good with computers but I still think even the most computer illterate person should have no problem getting this out of the box, battery put in and charged up via mains. There is prompts and help with the initial set up, and further help is optional if you should require it.
The old laptop had 512MB memory and this is 4x better. Because of this I was expecting it to go at lightspeed when you switch it on. Not quite, but it's still very fast.
The 1.86Ghz processor has a noticeable difference compared to the old 1.73Ghz, but that could be due to the "age difference" because my last is few years old now.
It's got 160GB hard drive, which is plenty of space for my music and word processed files, and I'm a student so you can imagine how much music I have.
The 15.4" screen is beautiful, same as my other absolutely no complaints whatsoever.
I'd say it comes loaded with everything the average person needs from a computer, except the stuff you pay for (e.g. MS Office) but there is a 60day free trial. The programs I have installed are: itunes, MSN messenger, visual basic (a computer programming program), and Sony Ericsson PC Suite etc, for my phone.
It has 4 USBs (2 on the left, 2 on the right side), and the built in wireless for internet is superb. SD slot has come in use already for backing up some photos to clear space on the card to take more.
The price is fantastic, and if you're looking at getting a new laptop, you can't go wrong with this. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
(I think this is my first review and hope people found it ok, sorry if I compared it to my old laptop abit much, but, what else do I compare it to? Please give appropriate feedback.)

 Great for first laptop

This is a great laptop at a bargain price. The style and its software are plenty for anyone who wants to convert their data from a desktop pc as i have done. However, the only down point i will say is that its description did not mention that the MS Office application is only a 60 day trial. For a novice like myself i was under the impression that i would get the full software.

 great value

Had this machine for about 3 weeks now and it does everything I would want a laptop to do very well. Could have done with a built in webcam but who cares? The built in wireless is great, the feel of the construction gives a lot of confidence and the vaio shortcut keys make life very easy. By far the best budget laptop out there.

Buy it now.

 Great laptop!

In response to the previous reviewers' question, the GFX card is a GMA X3100.
This is a great laptop, perfect for school / college or what ever. It's not too heavy and it doesn't get too hot.
5 stars.
