"I love this laptop. It is a truly brilliant laptop and I have only managed to find one fault with it and that's the price.
The looks on this laptop are brilliant. Its just the right thickness and I love the black look. The keyboard and touchpad look good as well as does the traditional vaio logo on the top of the laptop. The huge 17 inch screen just helps make this laptop look the part. A great all round looking laptop.
