Sony Vaio VGN-FS740/W

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FS740/W
My laptop has a 1.73mhz pentium M processor, 512MB RAM, 80GB Hard drive, CD+-RW/DVD+-RW Burner

I purchased my VAIO from Bestbuy in 2006, and thankfully I purchase the three year warranty from them because I needed it often. It ran well at but then I was hit with many problems. First the power supply went out, took it in.

Then the Hard drive dies, took it in got it fixed however when they installed the new hard drive with Windows XP and the Sony drivers none of the shortcut keys worked properly and they could never get it fixed. And now after all those problems it got outdated super quick and not worth the trouble.

The keyboard was pretty decent, touchpad was not so great, and the speakers where horrible. Also the audio in/out jacks wore out quickly.

At first very quick, now it is outdated and slow. I think I would need more RAM to be worth using.
I would not recommend this to a friend because it is vastly outdated. I might consider buying from Sony again.
