It has a hidden recovery partition (11.7 gigs) and a utility to make a recovery dvd in case the hard drive crashes. I haven't run it yet but I am going to try to extract it onto a flash drive soon. There is a whole book dedicated to how to perform the recovery that came with the laptop but I just filed it away.

Yes this notebook has a Rescue partition, as well as recovery options from within Windows using VAIO Care.

Each Sony Computer be it our All In One systems, or notebooks unless otherwise specified have a rescue partition on the Hard Drive. this can be accessed by pressing [F10] at the VAIO Logo on POST before windows boots. at the advanced boot options press enter to launch . this is an added feature should the C partition ever become corrupted.

Be sure to create a set of recovery software as a backup using VAIO care to have a Hard Copy on your favorite DVD -R Blank DVD media. if you should ever wish to upgrade or alter your partitions.

this notebook meets the minimum requirements to play the game you are inquiring about, however consult Riot Games for optimal requirements. for a gaming Notebook External Dedicated Graphics is suggested for optimal play/ the F series is geared twords a gaming environment.

I do not think it would be as efficient for your purpose as you hope. Perhaps you should take a look at the SAMSUNG QX410-S02. It has a dedicated graphics card. There is also an HP and a Toshiba for close to your price range or maybe even less that could be useful but I did not get them because this sonyt was prettier. :P

The Toshiba I mentioned above was a Qosmio going for 1200 I think. Plus its I5 clocked at 2.3GHz before turbo boost (taking it to 2.9GHz). This Sony I believe clocks at 2.66GHz before turbo boost. I am not sure how great an impact such clocking would have on performance

For the most part you DO NOT want to play demanding games on this laptop. It does not have a dedicated Graphics card. Its graphics card is integrated in the motherboard. There is no fix to this. This laptop was not made for gaming. To get a gaming laptop look for ones that have Nividia or ATI Radeon chips (these would be listed near the intel and windows stickers).

answer 2
Battery life depends on what the notebook is running and how bright the screen is set. For DVD playback you will get around 3 hours on a full charge. On default LCD brightness about 4.5 hours, on maximum brightness about 4 hours.
