Quality Netbook
 
I am very satisfied with my W Series netbook. I was aware of the criticisms posted by some other reviewers. The netbook works fine for me. The profile photo on Amazon clearly shows the battery unlike some other sites. It doesn't bother me at all. It tilts the netbook at a nice angle, and it keeps the netbook cooler. The fan is not that loud. The display is great! The high resolution images are superb. If you are far-sighted, you might want something else. I like the clarity of the images. The ri...

Superficially attractive design, but beware of functional issues
 
I have been using one of these (brown finish) for about 6 weeks, and I must say that it is a mixed-bag, ultimately disappointing for the premium price level. The physical appearance is quite nice, consistent with other VAIO designs, and the screen resolution is excellent. The extended-life battery helps to tilt the keyboard when sitting on a desk, so the bulge doesn't bother me; but the small chicklet keys and layout will bother many potential users, particularly since there are plenty of netboo...

Buzz Kill!
 
Sony has made a big mistake in how they have represented this net book or mini Vaio. Sony evidently can't produce a netbook style computer with competitive battery life and ship it with the monster high capacity battery that is competitive and lasts 7 hours but ruins the sleek look of the computer. Even on Sony's Web site as well as Amazon's they present this laptop in every photo with a sleek profile and a small battery that they claim lasts 7 hours.Big untruth. Or shall we cut to the chase and...

Great Netbook Overall.
 
I just got the brown version (with Windows 7 Starter) of this netbook a day ago and here are my initial impressions. I got this netbook as a secondary computer for when I travel. The looks of the Sony netbook is brilliant. Looks of the netbook are quite important to me so it's a major reason why I bought this netbook. The netbook is small and it blends so well with the surroundings of my apartment. The AC Adapter is small so that's good. The netbook is reported to have a weight of 2.6 lbs. I s...

Poor keyboard design and a noisy fan ruin the experience
 
I wanted to like this computer, but I couldn't. To start off, the keyboard design is bad for a number of reasons. Very small keys make typing a chore. The right Shift key is ridiculously small because Sony thought it necessary to have a second Function key on the right side of the keyboard. The Tab key is also too small.The fan almost never stops running. Other netbooks are almost silent, so I see no reason to put up with a noisy fan.The screen is bright, which is nice, but I didn't care fo...

Picture are deceiving!! Battery sticks out 1 inch!
 
Got this computer today. When I installed the battery, I noticed it sticks 1 inch below the netbook, making it look terrible and bulky. I contacted Sony and they confirmed the netbook ships with the high-capacity battery. Too bad none of the pictures on Amazon (or the Sony website) show the ugly battery!Promptly returned it to Amazon for a refund. Will have to shop for some other netbook, I guess....

Problems from the Start
 
There should be 4 gig of RAM. I don't want the battery. Why not sell a notebook size without battery?The following comment about not making any sense. Just for your benefit I will expand.A laptop will met all my computer requirements. There is no need today for a tower and all the other parts. The computer is always used where there is power 110V, even in the car when I travel.I repeat a laptop will do all that a desktop can do, why not lower the price and sell without the expensive battery. Thi...

Netbook done well.
 
This review is from: Sony VAIO VPC-W121AX/W 10.1-Inch White Netbook - Up to 7 Hours of Battery Life (Windows 7 Starter) (Personal Computers) I read all the Amazon-based customer reviews and ended up purchasing the white VAIO. I had a netbook already, an early issue bargain-basement Dell 9" that mainly taught me what I wanted instead, and this Sony is it. Let me react to a number of specifics some others have voiced concerns about. I list the two downside comments at the bo...

hey don't dismiss this thing!
 
Ok i was reading through all the reviews here before i went and bought a netbook and I have to say i was scared by the reviews on here. The fat battery thing in particular. Well I got one anyway and I had to say that i am NOT disappointed in any way so far. Yes it does indeed have a very strange battery design, possibly even ugly....BUT it has an amazing battery life and other than that it's awesome! This little guy is weightless and works like a charm. It can do everything my mac powerbook...

Absolute junk
 
What a piece of trash.It broke after less than three months and Sony refuses to fix it under warranty.Flimsy junk. Stay away unless you enjoy burning hundred dollar bills.Also it is noisy and the tumor battery is awkward and ugly. Even before it broke I was not impressed.
