You'll buy it for looks; definitely not worth the tag.
 
Maybe I got a fluke, but Sony's so-called "full laptop" computer in an 8" form factor is like trying to run Vista on your mom's old P3. Seriously, this thing absolutely crawls. All this would be acceptable were it not for the very mediocre battery life (forget 4 hours, I couldn't even manage 2 with moderately heavy use), when any other netbook (that's right, netbook) for well under half the price outperforms it in battery life AND performance. Ironic; the 1.33Ghz processor really is a step down ...

Small and liteweight, but kind of slow
 
I like Sony product overall, but this product was not too impress at all. I purhcased this 2 week ago, with 2 extra battery, travel bag, external VGA/Cat-5 network adapter (since I am traveling a lots and need a small notebook to do my work while traveling). Upon receive, it looks very cool, small and liteweight, but after use it, I am kind of disappoint, it is SLOW ( may be I get used to my 14.1 2.0G CPU, vs of this Atom slow CUP, for sure is slow). I know I can not return it, so I am planning ...

Very bad product
 
this laptop has troubles with wifi connection, i change it for a new one and it had the same issue. I contacted Sony Vaio customer service and they couldn't resolve the problem.

Sony's egomaniacal reign of terror continues unabated
 
When I first spotted this product in the Sony store, the only question that went through my mind over and over again was "...why...".*BY THE WAY FOR THOSE THAT MISSED IT THE FIRST TIME, AND FOR NEWCOMERS, HERE'S MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE PRODUCT*First off, this is one amazingly well-engineered product. It's solidly built, but still light and ultra portable. Despite the small screen, web pages and applications are displayed brilliantly - it was a great idea to make the scre...

Great travel size But can't watch a movie. There is no DVD Player!
 
I like size but would rather buy a small weight Vaio with a Blu Ray Disk player for my use so I could use DVD's in the newest format and that would be worth the extra money. So until they can add that kind of entertainment it seems no better than having a I Touch actually better to have something like that than just a very small computer you can't use for many things yet.No Thanks I would stick with Sony Vaio computers with lowest weight and be entertained and have it all!! OH Yeah! BS

Good Product, with couple tricks
 
I bought this with about $550 couple month ago and have been using it in my business trips.It is very light weighted and full function PC laptop and it a wonderful device to remote log into the corporate desktop and get some work done.The preloaded Windows Vista home was a pain and I was able downgrade it to Windows XP, which makes the machine much faster. You can find the entire XP driver set in Sony's online library (the power management part is kind of difficult to fig...

Elegant but Slow and Difficult to Use
 
I was looking for an ultraportable computer for checking emails and light internet browsing while travelling. Weight, size and speed were my considerations. This Sony seemed to fill the bill; I tried it for a day; but returned it because it was so difficult to use. First of all, it is not "pocket sized" unless you are wearing clown pants. The deal breaker for me were the tiny keyboard and tiny print, I had to squint hard and got a headache within half an hour of playing with it. There is a magni...

Great travel laptop
 
I purchased this notebook to use as a travel laptop for this purpose, it is great. The display is bright and very legible (after changing the font DPI to 120 dpi). The keyboard is usable (given the size) and the built-in SD card slot comes in handy.The main problem with this laptop is that it comes with Vista SP1. After updating the SP2, the performance is much better. I also got the Intel developer drivers from their website and used the "Have Disk" procedure to update. Now the grap...
