Display and back lit keyboard is good.
ATI graphic chip is not good , would have prefered Nvida.
Battery Life is poor.
After one week of use when the laptop was placed on my desk, when i picked it up , i found 2 screws that hold the laptop together, and vibrated out !!! Either i was sold a reconditioned unit , or scewes in the factory are not installed correctly.
POWER SUPPLY over heats and smells of burning

Brilliant display but only to be expected of Sony, as I have experienced.
Backlight keyboard is great. HDMI and blueray player fantastic. Is heavy but when you consider the spec, it replaces a tower system and is still semi portable.
With all the free software it is slower than expected, hopefully when I clean up the hard drive I am hoping the full speed is realised.
It is heavy but when you consider the size and true HD definition, it is a price worth paying for if this is what you need

Awesome machine - more of a desktop replacement than a true laptop / notebook but as long as you are not toting it about the world (like I do) it's great. Big bright screen makes my work a lot easier and was the principal reason for buying (along with performance from the 3rd gen i7 processor. Not had to burn it too hard yet but looks like it'll handle everything I throw at it.
It is big and pretty heavy. But you'll know that if you are buying a 17" screen!
