I bought my sony vaio about a year ago for no real reason other than I needed a new laptop. I had 2 HP's and a Dell prior so I felt it was time for a new brand. I really wanted a white laptop (but didnt want an apple) so I ended up with the sony. Yes, I'm a girl. I bought this laptop because of the color! I really only have one complaint about the laptop; the touch pad. Could it be in a worse spot!?!? My laptop has a number pad to the right so the entire keyboard is shifted to the left. I am constantly hitting the touch pad while typing and this causes my to start typing in the middle of sentences, delete entire sentences, go back a page on the internet and lose whatever content I had typed up. Love the laptop, hate the location of the touch pad!
