The only thing that's stopping me from buying one is access to the fan. I live in a very dusty place and I clean my Asus fan every 2 or 3 months to keep it clean. So how easy is it to get to the fan of Sony laptops? I realize it won't be as easy as an Asus, I've also tried opening Lenovo laptops where you have to detach the palmrest and the lift the keyboard which is a little annoying but still fine. My worst nightmare is my friends Fujitsu where I can't seem to open at all. I'm looking at the SR or the CS models atm.
how to make optical drive to be revealed on eject key press if it was turned off according to a powersaving scheme? This issue relates only to Sony Z after Vista clean installation (by this manual: Sony Z series 32bit Vista Clean Install Guide (full functions & no windows activation)). When I had "factory installed" Vista, it worked this way. But after I have reinstalled OS, DVD drive doesn't want to wake up without restart.
My laptop has a tendency to have it's fan going like an airplane all the time. Simple flash games can raise my core temperature through the roof. It will often (every couple of days) it likes to heat up so much that it shuts down, even while just browsing on the internet. I've read some things online and this seems to be a fairly common problem in the F700 series. I've had this laptop for about a year and I think that cleaning is overdue. Does anyone have a tutorial for opening up a laptop of close to the same model?
I really want to buy a black one as I prefer a matte finish and it wouldn't discolor, but I want it new and I cannot find any here in Canada, so I will have to buy a white one. This is going to be my very first mac and to me it's a lot of money... I hope it will be worth it (I'm a little nervous about the switch) .
I upgraded from windows 7 to windows 8 just a few days back. Since the upgrade, I'm not able to access any of my USB pendrives and flashdrives after plugging them in the hub. The oc just does not read them. The light on pen drives glows for 1 second and then goes off.
I've been looking at the VGN-FW460J/T at Fry's Electronics and I would to know if this is a good notebook? I really don't care about the new i7's that are coming out, because I planning to get one sometime next year when they reach at a least 2.0GHz and at an affordable cost.
I am in Shanghai and went to demo a new Vaio Z at a local SonyStyle store with a 3.06GHz CPU and Dual SSDs raided. The unit had Vista 64bit and 8GB of RAM... surprisingly though, no BluRay just a DVD Burner... go figure...
I tried to have someone explain to me if the design of the Z was changed because on my Z (model VGG-Z27GN) internally there is only space for one 2.5" drive (and nothing else really).
If the new Z's can accommodate 2 HDs inside, some major internal redesign had to be made. Does anyone know if this is the case or if maybe Sony is using some sort of two 1.8" Drives instead that they RAID together
Is the Sony F LCD screen the same as the Dell XPS16?
At one time the Sony F was listed as an "RGBLED", same as Dell XPS16. They are also the same size/resolution.
I ask, because, I was at Best Buy this past weekend, and I found that the screen was very washed out looking. I confirmed it was resolution 1920, so it was surely their "Premium" LCD. Every review I read seemed to suggest the RGBLED of the Dell XPS16 was bright (almost obnoxiously so) and colorful. This F Model I reviewed truly did seem pale compared to other nearby monitors.
