    Becareful with The Pictures

    Posted .

    This computer is wonderful. I love the fact that it is sony. I am very happy with my purchase however my only complaint is that the pictures of the color of the laptop are much brighter than the laptop is in person. I purchased the violet and it pretty much looks black /violet unless you are in direct sunlight. I would have to assume that some of the other colors like the blue, pink, and green are probably brighter than the violet in person. The color is what stuck out to me the most over all the other laptops out there so when I got home and opened my laptop I was disappointed. And of course best buy has a %15 percent restocking fee and on a $800 laptop, I'd really be losing out so I decided to keep it and trade it in for a brighter color next year.

    Great computer. Awful Speakers

    Posted .

    This is my first Sony laptop and so far so good. However, I can't believe Sony would put out a product with such terrible audio output! But maybe that's the point. Do they sell speakers for laptops? LOL. Anyhow, this is a really great little computer, super fast and at a really good price. I just can't get over how low the output volume is on the speakers! UGH!

    Great Color, Great Size, Great Features

    Posted .

    I've tried several laptops over the years, and none has quite met my needs. My last was a Gateway, which is not very old. I liked the features and sound on that one, but the keys turned out to be too large for my hands and so I had a rough time typing fast. I had been looking at this laptop for a while, primarily because I love the color purple, but I wasn't sure about the screen size because I'm to the point in my life where I need reading glasses and I wasn't sure if it would be large enough for me to see. I needn't have worried. What I had wanted all along was a laptop small enough to sit on my lap when laying on the couch - this is the most comfortably sized one I've had. And seeing the screen is no problem. The keys are a wonderful size, and I really like the pebbled mousepad because it slows my fingers down enough where they don't accidently fly off the pad and shoot my coursor off the screen. This little baby is the speediest computer of the ones I currently own, and I think will probably end up being my primary computer. The speakers ARE awful - I just won't use them. My only other complaint is that the only one my local store had in stock was a "preloaded" model that the Geek Squad had gotten hold of, and so I had to pay an extra $100 for backup disks. Which I know very well how to do on my own. But I could have waited and ordered one through the websit and avoided the cost - I was just too impatient. All in all, I do love this model!

    Great Computer

    Posted .

    This computer was a gift from my parents for college and I am very pleased to receive it. I recieved it in violet which is a real warm color that I love. The blu-ray player was a huge extra from anything I was asking for. My complaint, is that the screen is not high definition. It is not 1900X1080 so it seemed a bit overkill, but the HDMI output allows the laptop to double as my blu-ray player at home, so I don't have to deal with having two different devices. The battery life is average, only about 4 hours but it does the work I need and doesn't get excessively warm, even if I plug in the unit and leave it attached while I'm working. Since the E series is relatively new, I'm having difficulty finding skins for my laptop that cover the screen from smudges or fingerprints. my only major complaint is where the power button is located. I have turned off my computer several times on accident by simply reaching across the keys. I turned my settings to where it asks me if I want to shut down, or automatically hibernates. Overall a great computer, with great features.

    Great Product With Few Flaws.

    Posted .

    I just purchased this laptop about a week ago, and I am in love with it. Not only is my favorite color purple, but the keyboard is touchpad is really nice, and I do love the additional blu-ray player. There are a few things that I didn't like, & one are the speakers. I used to own an HP DV4 Entertainment notebook, and the speakers on it were amazing. The first time I turned on the music on without headphones on this laptop, my fiancé and I looked at eachother like "What is that?!" But I learned that if you adjust the volume to where it's equalized, the speakers sound fairly good. I would recommend this computer to everyone, though. It's an amazing machine & plan to keep it for a very long time!

    Great Product for the Price

    Posted .

    It's a very nice, slick design for a laptop. Plus it has so many little features, such as the built in camera, HDMI hookup, and BluRay player that you may not think you will use, but it's nice. I've had it for a little over a month and I am very pleased. I bought it for every day use, such as internet, email, pictures, documents, etc. At first I wasn't sure what the other reviewers meant that they accidentally were turning their computer off. I actually did this a couple of times already. Although not a big deal, it starts up so quickly. The speakers, same thing, not the greatest, but what laptops speakers are? The battery life gets about 3.5-4 hours, but I really don't need it for much more, since I typically use this laptop at home. I have recommended this laptop to family and friends. They didn't have the white/silver in stock when I bought it, but I wanted the purple anyway. I actually thought I'd have to pay more for the purple.

    great laptop

    Posted .

    Very fast, lightweight and reasonably priced for its quality and the fact that it has blue-ray as well as a variety of nice colors. This was a gift for my Daughter and I'm very picky about what I get her. However, I'm very pleased with this.

    Great computer for price!

    Posted .

    I had the same desktop computer for 8 years. It was time to upgrade and I really wanted a laptop. I stood at the Best Buy for about 2 hours. The sales people were super friendly and let me ask as many questions as I needed. After much research on my phone I decided the purple vaio was a fantastic price and just what I needed. So far it has been great for the month I've had it. The only complaint I have is the battery life, but its easy to just plug it in. Sound is good, screen is good. I love the way windows 7 is set up. If you want basic with a few extra cool things, this is the computer for you.

    awesome mid sized laptop, with all the esentials

    Posted .

    I downsized from a 17" HP to my sony vaio. I have wanted a vaio for years but havent been able to find one in my price range. thankyou BEST BUY. This vaio has everything I wanted in a laptop, including a bluray, HDMI, and best of all its PURPLE! I traveled alot this summer with my union and hated having to pack along my cumbersome HP. Now I'm looking forward to traveling with my purple vaio, its perfect size and even matches my SEIU colors. I recomend this laptop to anyone who wants the best product with all the best features and wants to show off thier pesonal style at the same time.

    Easy to use

    Posted .

    So far my new Sony Vaio has been very easy to use. I like the size, color and capacity but was disappointed in the volume control particularly when playing DVDs. The DVD player is quite loud when running so paired with the poor volume output, it is really not a good computer for watching movies unless you have another source of sound system such as external speakers or headphones. It's actually fine if you watch internet tv/movies at top volume. Other then that, it is everything it says it is. I haven't used it to it's full potential but do enjoy the ease, speed and comfort this small laptop offers.

    Great laptop!

    Posted .

    We bought a Vaio laptop around the 1st of February, 2011 and have been extremely please with it. There isn't anything that we've wanted to do that we haven't been able to do. Be it pictures, music, etc. It was well worth the money. We are really into little league baseball and I also purchased Microsoft Office and there doesn't seem to be anything I can't do with my Vaio. Definitely would recommend it to others.

    Nice product

    Posted .

    So far, so good. It's nice to have the blue ray player included. Good size. The purple color is cute, didn't think I would like it (they were out of the white in the store) but it has grown on me. The keyboad/pad is nice. No complaints. A little pricey, but we got a good deal. I don't think I would pay the listing price for any laptop, so I couldn't really say if this was a "great" deal.

    good all around general use laptop

    Posted .

    Needed to update my current laptop to a more robust system with a little more speed and memory. My previous laptop was also a Sony Vaio which I am a big fan of. This new model is much faster in processing than my previous model which was about 3 years old. I definitely would recommend this model to anyone needing a general all around use laptop: playing games, blu-ray DVDs, general word processing, etc.

    Awesome Laptop!

    Posted .

    This laptop is really great! For one thing, I just love the violet color! I haven't had any problems with it yet and I definitely recommend it! If I had to pick one downside, it would be the battery life, but other than that it's perfect!

    Great value for this level of computer.

    Posted .

    I bought this particular one because I have had good luck with the Sony Vaio's in the past. It had a lesser battery life than the comparable priced Toshiba but it had Blue tooth and extra ports that the Toshiba didn't have. It was easy set up....by myself... and it's lighter than my last one. My older one still works but I ran out of memory. I haven't got any complaints.

    Great laptop for an amazing price

    Posted .

    * Bought this for my wife. She loves the color * Hooked up to my HDTV and works like a charm * Core i3 + 4GB RAM + Blu-ray for a Sony vaio is a killer deal @ $699 * Slightly on the heavier side and a bit bulky. hence the average rating for convenience * Overall great value for money. One of my best buys

    Got this as a christmas gift for my 2nd daughter and she loves it! she definitely needed an upgrade from her 4yr old dell. Dell is a great brand but she wanted to buy and try a different brand.

    excellent laptop for a good price

    Posted .

    I love my new Sony Vaio. It is fast and has plenty of memory to hold all of my pictures, songs, and videos. I like the fact that it is small enough for me to take to school daily, yet large enough for me to do all that I need to do.
