The Sony Vaio 15.5" Laptop doesn't make the top ten in my book. I am not impressed by this laptop one bit. It works decently, but the sound and picture quality are not the best. The battery life is worthless. When it is not plugges in I have only 2 hours of battery like. And it tends to overheat very quickly because of the proccesor that's in it and the very few fans that are built into it. The only thing I like about this laptop in the light up keyboard. Otherwise, I am not impressed with it one bit. If I could return it, I would, but I cannont. Overall, this laptop does not beat the 17" Tosihba I had. In my opinon the Sony Vaio is a waste of hard earned money.
