"Perfect laptop for browsing"

My personal review for the Sony Vaio M Series Laptop Model VPCM12M1E/P/B

Main features: It has a great display, with ultra high colours, which gives the best view for videos etc. It has a compact, comfortable keyboard, which is easy to use. The buttons are clear and are easy to use. One of my buttons did however fall of once - but i took it to the PC repair shop and they fixed it instantly. Its a lightweight laptop, which is easy to carry around. It can fit easily in a bag you carry around when your out and about- it comes with a black laptop case and it looks really smart. The trackpad ( the bit on the laptop where you put your finger to move the mouse), its a bit flimsy and dodgy in my opinion. The trackpad it self is annoying whilst browsing, it keeps on jolting about the place sometimes. Also it has no grip on it, so your finger sometimes just slides all over it, which makes the mouse do all sorts of things! The battery life is not really great. It lasts about 3.5-4.5 hours, which isn't that great. And when its on charge constantly it the laptop heats up to much, and if its on your lap i heard the heat from it can cause cancer. I like the thin-ness of the laptop, its more of a notebook in a way. It has Intel Atom N470 CPU and 1GB of RAM, its features won't set your pulse racing like mad, but it's reasonably priced, at around £300, which is a good price for laptop these days. The laptop is 10.1-inch;which is small in comparison with the normal sized laptops of 15.6-inch. Also it has LED-backlit display with a maximum resolution of 1,024x600 pixels.It has backlighting which makes the screen look for crisper and brighter, and the quality is intense! However when you watch videos for instance on youtube, the HD 720p videos or higher dont seem to go well with the system. It lags alot, and the videos don't seem to buffer at all! There's a VGA out, an Ethernet port, an SD card slot, and three USB ports on the right-hand side. A 3.5mm headphone jack and microphone socket are located on the front, and a 0.3-megapixel webcam is mounted above the screen. This netbook also supports 802.11b/g/n wireless connectivity. Apart from all that its just an average laptop, not the best, just perfect for browsing, none more. Overall if your looking for a laptop just to do browsing and things like that, this is the laptop for you. If your looking to watching videos and playing games on your laptop, this definitely is not the lap top for you! Could of been much better...
