I bought a Sony Vaio VPCEB23FX less than 18 months ago. With good care and regular maintenance, I have a hard disk failure. Within two months of purchase the plastic rim of the DVD drive fell off. Within six months, a USB port did not work. I use a chill pad, and the thing still overheats. It freezes on simple Word documents. The display will frequently just go to black. The start-up alert will start buzzing and won't quit, so that I have to restart anew. Now I have a hard disk failure? No surprise. It's a POS. I'm looking for another laptop. It WILL NOT be made by Sony.

I bought this laptop in October 2010. At that time considering its features the price was probably the lowest of all.If you are a movie buff the Full HD display is bound to impress you the clarity. The videos and images are crystal clear. The graphics card is quite promising I really loved NFS: Hot Pursuit the graphic experience is life like.

The things that sets you back is the touchpad which gets really annoying esp. when you are browsing. The speakers are less powerful.(I recommend using a good pair of headphones). And yes remove all preloaded apps from sony (Most of you would actually never use them) and install an antivirus other than McAfee(trust me its horribly annoying!).

- Very very fast computer
- You can open 10s of application and the system doesn't blink an eye
- Full HD Screen is mind blowing , don't even think of those cheap 1300x 700 something screen

and people who are bent utpont i5 of i7 I just want to say I have not been able ot bog down this laptop anytime.

If you have money make sure you buy HD screen , make sure you buy Excellent graphics card. The graphics of new games are mind blowing and this laptop can play any game even the latest ones at fairly reduced resolutions.

I Play Call of Duty Black ops on 1024x768 with 4AA or 12800x720 with noAA.

NFS shift runs amazing at 1300. Crisis runs fine at 12800x720. with no AA

PC mark 3d 06 score is 6000 odd.

Its a great laptop for value for money. If someone wants a cheap gaming laptop I will say pick the new MSI

But for multi taskers like me I love the HD screen its a beauty and the system is blazingly fast.

Issuse: pathetic touchpad, get a mouse. Bad ROM drive mine after one year is giving issues. well I rarely use drive so doesn't matter.

Also hibernating can be sometimes issue , as once is come back form hibernation it will might not have brightness control and screen might be at full bright.
This screen is bright and really bright.

I own the similar version with previous release vpceb26fg its the same machine with .1ghz more processing power.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
