This is like Ford selling Mustang with Inline-4 2.0 liter engine.†† What a waste of chasis.

The Sony tap 11 has a touch screen 1080P gen 4 i5 processor for the same price with 2 free accessories in store at the same price, how is this "deal" hot ?

Yikes. You are correct, I got excited for a second. This is 2012 CPU with the speed not too much better than a Core@Duo from from 2008.

That said, it is EXCELLENT and tough laptop. I have a bunch still in service...but with i5 and i7s for field construction crew and they look and work like new. Even battery Life is Good. Drop in cheap SSD, and for most work you'd never notice the speed difference. I my opinion the bottlenecks of slow hard drive and very basic intel video really is what slows video rendering etc way more than even this celeron. I doubt this can even play Minecraft at all without luck and modded drivers.

For for web, office documents or even auto cad this will work well with a ssd. Even with the "celeron". †

Note you can use a 1.8 mSATA drive in this AND also a 2.5 drive at the same time. You only loose the WWAN card...not that most use that anyway.

New from the outlet at a fair price but not screaming good price. perhaps if you have access to broken screen laptops where you can steal the i7 from.

This has CPU Mark 1326
Intel Core2 Duo E6300 CPU Mark†1120

† The Sony is OOS at most places.† Plus Sony is winding down the VAIO operation.† Good luck with that if something breaks and you need support down the road.

Price dropped to $475.

I am thinking of buying this laptop. I do not do any gaming and it appears that it already has a SSD. I just purchased today a Z510 with great specs, but the reviews say that the wireless connection is very slow ~ ;(((
I am wondering if I would be better off with this computer? Any thoughts?

Aside from the good build quality, this deal isn't so hot with outdated hardware. †There has been lots of great deals on notebooks lately, I'd hold off if I were you.

Thank you for responding. I will go in a different direction. Looking into macs and just discovered the Mac Mini. Great little machine, but not really a laptop option. Some connect it to their I Pad's tho for portability.

Ok, thanks again.
