For sale: 3 year old Sony Vaio VPC-S11V9E I've owned it since new and has been an absolute gem. I paid just over £1000 for it when I bought it and i've just decided I am going to delve into the world of Apple at some point. The laptop is in full working order but there are a couple of things to point out. The wireless lan does not work, I have tried un-installing and reinstalling the driver etc but no luck, so I have been using a tiny usb dongle for wireless internet. Secondly, the backlight on the screen went early this year, I had it repaired by a laptop repair specialist, it wasn't the actual screen that was the problem, it was the fuse for the backlight that went, which has been repaired and is fine now. The trackpad is in full working order, the buttons show obvious signs of wear and there is a odd bump just at the top of the track pad between the trackpad and space bar (it in no way affects the laptop but want to point it out. The disc drive works but does have a tendency to be a bit loud at times. Its so rarely used, only really to burn cd's so doesn't bother me. Lastly, the laptop does show signs of surface scratches on the lid and around the screen on the bezel, nothing major but again, can be noticeable. Can run a lot of games and medium settings no problem. I have been as honest as I can with this listing and I truely have loved this machine, and am using it as we speak to write the listing. Pics are up on here 2nd post for viewing. I have also upgraded the ram on this beast from 4gb to 8gb and it runs smooth as you like.
