A little Disappointed
First time to buy SONY. Bought two weeks ago, Not as good as I thought it would be. It looks pretty. The reasons I want to change my laptop are the fan of my current laptop is loud sometimes since I have used it for 4 years, and the battery life of the old one is really short. The battery life of the SONY I got is okay, but the fan of it is sometimes even more loud than my old one!!! And the temperature goes up really quickly. And just found that the price went down,too.

I purchased the s series mothers day bundle that included the s series13.3" laptop with i5 core processor, 4gb of ram, 500 gb of HDD, 512mb of AMD graphics. It also came with the extended life sheet battery, 2 hardshell covers and a 13.3" sony carrying sleeve. I'm not a gamer or anything of the sort. I needed a computer for school and sewing machines. This laptop is extremely easy to operate for those of us who aren't too computer savvy. The directions for transferring old files from my old computer we're extremely easy to follow. It works beautifully. I haven't had one issue with it. The fact that I caught this entire package on sale for $775 has made this a must-buy. I'm very happy that I purchased the sony vaio instead of the macbook pro.

Good for the Buck!
I'm in love with this PC. Some reviews complain about battery life, but when on Stamina, it lasts for more than 3 hours.
It is gorgeous and the backlight keyboard let me work while my wife sleeps. The camera works fine for me.
It is fast, light and small. I don't need an I-7 to perform my day by day work. I'm really happy with it.

Good for shoping on craiglist
I don't know if its the S series laptop or I am extremely unlucky to get a S series laptop with a black and white camera. I purchased at least 4 S series laptops and all had a messed up camera.
The battery life of 15 inch S series is no way close to what it is advertised. My battery works only 2-1/2 hours. 3 hours would be stretching. i think Sony is aware of the problem that is why they are giving away the sheet battery for free. With sheet battery it works fine. Secondly it has an i5 Processor, that also contributes to battery life. But it works fine with sheet battery.
I would like to read some comments about the camera. I have another Vaio that is VPCEH190X and the camera is excellent and let me remind you that VPCEH190X is the cheapest laptop available on sony site. I think the cheaper it is, the better it is.
