The Plus
An excellent touchpad has been crammed in, with a fingerprint scanner nestled between the two mouse buttons to boot.
An ExpressCard/34 slot makes sure the most recent pluggables can be used.
Battery lasted a good 3 hours 3 minutes when running a DVD on loop without turning on any power saving features.
The power button sits on the right hand side on the hinge, glowing a pleasing green colour.

The Minus
The optical drive eject button is exceptional small for human fingers to comfortably find.
Only two USB ports are available.
A VGA port sits behind the optical drive--which is disappointing as to expectation in some sort of digital output.
Sony continue to separate the Memory Stick card reader from the SD card reader at the front of the notebook, taking up more space than a multi-card reader would for the sake of supporting supports Sony's MagicGate DRM.
LED backlit screen-1,366 x 768 screen is flimsy whereby no large amout of stress is required to break it.
The modem, Gigabit Ethernet and FireWire ports are hidden underneath a cover that will probably break off far too easily

This ultraportable notebook is really only meant for productivity apps, and not so much gaming or high powered graphics applications.
