Summary: DON'T DO IT!!!! Mother board fried before a year. Sony will not replace or repair it. Sony literally repped me off for $2000!! Major issues with these computers, repair people are telling me that they are seeing a ton of them come in.
and Sony customer service really sucks. I purchased the 4 year onsite protection plan

Summary: I agree mostly with what others have said. Unfortunately, mine died at the ripe old age of 6 months, and Sony customer service really sucks. I purchased the 4 year onsite protection plan, and now I have to wait 3 or 4 days (with the long weekend in between for good measure, just for somebody to call and schedule a repair. it's totally dead. Won't read the recovery partition, won't read off the DVD to restore from my recovery disks, nothing.
Summary: This is the best of the best. I have owned and used tons of computers in my lifetime. Many of them Sony. They are always superior computers and this one is absolutely the best. The 24 in touch screen is fantastic. Quick response touch just like a great tablet. Has a TV tuner and separate remote so watching cable or dish is no problem. A separate tv button switches from pc to tv and back. The specs are awesome: 8GB ram and 2TB drive. Quad processor Intel 7 is super fast.
Summary: Love the product, it replaces another Sony computer, which I have had for the past 10 years without a single issue, still running. The end of XP support is the only reason for the replacement. My only issue is the price, $500.00 over list price, which was, $1,599.99. The computer was Shipped on time and found in NEW condition as listed. So, YES...I would recommend the product and Amazon to family and friends. Thank you Robert L. Green Jr.
Summary: My HP computer failed after two years, so I decided to return to Sony computers which have never failed or died on me. I also bought a Sony external hard drive to back up my data. My only difficulty was transferring my data from one Windows 8.1 computer to another. Fortunately, Microsoft technicians spent hours on the phone helping me. This computer works beautifully, takes up little space, and is a joy to work on. I'm sorry I ever left Sony.
