I am looking into getting a Sony VAIO VGN-UX380N , which is an ultra potrable laptop, the smallest I have ever seen. I would like to know if anyone here has one and can give me some of the pros and cons.
I had a problem with 2 Vaio's. Neither was the smaller one. My mother-in-law has had one for quite a number of years and the only issue she had was the battery on the unit was always "loose", which turned out to be just a product-wide defect that Sony never really did anything about for that model. The two Vaio's I had issues with both died for the same reason: CPU cooling fan went out and the laptop overheated and died fast. The smaller Vaio's seem to be less problematic, and so long as you can deal with tiny tiny icons, buttons, and typing space, then it is a fine machine. I wouldn't buy one, but I don't like tiny laptops.
I have a VAIO, not that exact model, but it is ridiculous tempermental... The mouse works in the opposite direction at times, the battery becomes loose for no good reason, the window freezes everytime I close the lid, the icons randomly disappear... I mean if you can deal with that then it is a great computer with amazing features...
I personally wouldn't trust anything made by Sony; I don't have a VAIO, but I have owned other Sony products that didn't even last a year.
