Hi, I own a VPC F236 FM since 2012, and it seems that my keyboard is malfunctioning. I need to replace it, but I can't find a proper replacement for it, because I imported it and the keyboard layout available for me contains the letter "Ç". Can it be used on my notebook anyway? I'm in the middle of a thesis, and I don't have time to wait 2 months for it to me to get it, nor the money to afford a new notebook. Thanks

The video is ok. Just stop editing over yourself in the video while you're talking, it's fucking annoying.

Performance wise - I do a lot of Photoshop and video editing ( Vegas ) and it works like a charm. The workflow in Vegas using 1080p footage is very good. Although there are faster processors out there, I'm interesting in the workflow rather than the encode time ( as I leave it on for the night ). Build Quality wise - I had better. . If you press on the VAIO logo it seems a bit more sensitive than I would expect from this class of laptop. I've had hi-end DELLs a lot tougher than this SONY.

I have this laptop - it's the US version with the 1920x1080 Vaio Premium screen which is to be honest one of the best laptop screens I have ever seen. It's pretty much comparable with the last 17 macbooks ( not the last retina ones tho ). I am a photographer and the screen quality is extremely important to me. Color separation is just insane. Angle wise, it's not bad but it could be a lot better but the screen was a huge selling point for me.

the build quality isn't good?! what the hell are you talking about i have the EXACT same laptop and i've accidentaly dropped it down the stairwell and there wasn't even a little scratch on the casing! this laptop is better build than most macbooks

If your laptop has to go back 7 times... you don't buy that brand anyway. So I am completely done with SONY ... maybe this VPCF2 will change that a bit but for now no more SONY ...

I got this new computer after my FZ21 went back 7 times to sony repair. I will never buy a Sony again. But I got f.u.cking crazy from the noise of the FZ21 that I switched it with this new one. This one is 300 euro's more expensive than my previous one. Replace the HDD with SSD and boots up now in 12 seconds. Works realy fast. So next new laptop... in a couple of years will be a Apple !!

That will be actually really great. I was also going to ask you to make another video to show us the 1080p screen resolution on this laptop. There is none available. What I would like to see is open two windows side by side and see if the two windows are workable. On my macbook pro 13 they are almost not workable. It would be great to see it. Plus gesture and touchpad will be bonus!

at 4:39, "overall I can't recommend it" but I guess I heard it wrong. Although it still seem can't to me but you clarified it so that's good. I do not use mouse at all. I am looking for 1080p for web development and this one is at reasonable price. I can probably live with it if gestures are not good but if touchpad overall is bad, that will be a disappointment for me. You are right it is marketed under different names. For US customers it is probably F2 series :) Thanks for reply

This laptop or maybe similar is listed as F2 series on amazon not F series. \Sony-Series-VPCF232FX-16-4-Inc­h-Laptop/dp/B005KOCC84/ref=sr_­1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1333909775&sr=­8-1 I am considering this esp for 1080p but I hear complain the touchpad is pretty bad. I am considering it for web development and entrainment btw no games. Also you said you do not recommend it but then you say to other commentators, it is a good laptop.

I paid about 850.00 by calling sony during a sale they had and "claiming" student discount. Plus an additional discount for them being late with the shipment. The laptop is great, but I noticed only half the "6" key on mine lights up. Also, the webcam is horrible in normal room light conditions (has a black and white look). A semi-fix to this problem, is adjusting the "saturation" to 100, uncheck "auto white balance" and manually set it to about 90% full. Also the numeric pad 0 key is unreliable

the flex is a good thing. if you drop it, it'll flex... if something is very stiff and doesn't flex it has more chances of breaking and cracking...
