Well, a great model worth its price as Vaio represents both quality and brand. I am convinced with its reliability and ruggedness. My professional life involves lots of travels that too in bikes. Withstanding such rough conditions is highly demanding. So as a 1st note Sony is really successful in keeping its model survive rough conditions. Second point that I should make out is its Display Quality! Watching movies in your Sony Vaio CR 36 is a different experience, with headphones in your ear you will rock! Stere0 speakers are just OK, but watching movies with headphones is a different experience. Next is the cool-user friendly keyboard which allows faster typing and gentleness to fingers. Hot keys are really really useful especially the mute button and play/pause button. A motion eye 1.3 mega pixel web cam serves better in video chatting. Finger print sensor allows greater secuirity locking features. Moreover the performance of this notebook with 2GB memmory and T8100 Core2Duo is simply amazing!
