Sony FS315M Laptop - 1 year on

AdvantagesA reasonably priced mid range laptop with a respectable name

DisadvantagesHard drive size will not be sufficient for the more demanding user

"I purchaced my Sony laptop just over a year ago, and has it served me well! With previous laptops I have had problems with noisy fans and over heating.....with this I have had none of those problems. This laptop is about mid range however it is possibly one of the thinnest laptops on the market, making it easy to use wherever you are. Even a year on this laptop is still a good specification and the 80gb hard drive isnt paticularly a set back as ..." Read review

Sony Vaio VGN FS215M - A Fantastic Laptop

AdvantagesGood Graphics, Decent RAM, Nice Keyboard, Good Selection of Ports

DisadvantagesBattery Life isnt Amazing, Could have More RAM, Bad Upgradability

"I use this laptop daily, it keeps up to speed, and doesn't slow down, like a lot of laptops do these days. It has great graphics, but can sometimes be a bit slow when playing online games such as Counterstrike. The keyboard is perfect, it looks cool, and the buttons feel nice on your fingers, and they are all the right size! The laptop is very portable, and has decent battery life, allowing for use whilst travelling. The laptop has 3 USB ports, ..." Read review

Sony are rubbish

Advantageseh?

DisadvantagesPoor customer sevice, unreliable products

"My Sony Vaio VGN-FS415M failed a few weeks out of WTY, it was very rarely used by my wife over the 12 mth period. Extended warranty program is a rip off and we were assured that the 'reliability is excellent' .. PC World morons. Laptop benefits in terms of speed and reliability once all crapware removed and a fresh licensed copy of XP Pro reinstalled. When it did work it performed as per specs - fairly average, nothing spectacular. Sony customer ..." Read review
