Don't buy the FS-660There are a few major drawbacks in this notebook:
1. The battery lasts for only 1.5 hour configured with the highest battery
saving option (Lowest Screen Brightness etc.) while using only internet (no heavy apps) !!!
I have tested it with many options but you don't go above 1.5 hours.
The life span for these type of batteries are 500 cycles charge/dishcharge.
2. The Intel 2200BG Wireless Card which comes with this laptop and also other laptops
such as DELL, have a major problem of a "Lost connection" where you get disconnected
every 1 minute for a 10-30 seconds. You can search for this problem on GOOGLE and see
that lots of people have this unsolved issue !!!
Sony support was unable to solve this issue, Intel and Sony blame each other.
I managed somehow to solve this problem after 3 Days, non-stop sitting with the laptop.
The only way is to uninsatll the 9.0 version and download the 8.0 version from Intel
and install both Software and Drivers from Intel and let Intel's software manage your
Wireless instead of Windows XP.
3. The maximum RAM which can be installed is up to 1GB.
The bottom line, we are paying a lot of money for Mobile computing when we don't
actually get it in this notebook (both battery life and wireless).
Although I like very much the Design and the Display I have decided
I am returning this notebook !!!
Another thing which really made me angry !!!
Sony doesn't supply the recovery CDs. You will
have to burn them yourself. After spending so much money
I had to go and spend more money buying DVDs, and spending more time burning them. This is really ridiculous. It's all about money.
