Summary: First: the Amazon product description isn't accurate. This laptop contains a 256 GB SSD, but no conventional hard drive. (They currently list it with a 500 GB HD, which is not correct.) The good: this is the laptop I'd been holding out for. It's fast enough and capable enough to run Adobe Photoshop with no problems or to allow me to manipulate a hugely complicated Excel spreadsheet filled with formulas without any noticeable lag.
Definitely cool Hybrid with unacceptable WIfi problem
14 December 2013
Summary: I looking for great laptop and good for tablet. This machine is amazing fast and great responsive in many ways. It can be one of my favorite gadget if it does not have serious Wifi connection problem. I use Apple Time capsule (old version) as my router to internet. Normally, I use my computer, tablet far from it around 15-20 feet, nothing go wrong. All my machine work and run internet extremely fast and never have disconnected problem.
Summary: this review is for the product as well as the customer support.please save yourself a lot of unnecessary aggravation and an eventual loss of money by NOT BUYING THIS PRODUCT. i am not one to write reviews, but this is one of the worst product/customer service experiences i have ever had. As a student it is absolutely disgusting that sony would literally rob me of $400.
Summary: I did not buy this at amazon as I am living in Canada, but I wanted to write a review as this device has received some mixed reviews. While largely discounted in reviews as "quirky"--I think sony's slider approach to hybrid ultrabooks is innovative and --in this model--exceptionally well implemented. The fixed viewing angle was not an issue for me. I did not encounter the dreaded wifi problems--i use an apple express basestation and got a full 5 bars.
Summary: Because of whats been written here I withheld myself for a long time from buying this great ultrabook. Since my time in the US was limited, since Ativ Q had disappeared from horizon and since with 4 gig of RAM AB9+ seemed ridiculous I decided to give a try with my first love. I found out that a newer model was already there with 4650U processor and Intel 5000HD graphics I visited Sony site to see WAN card installed model at over $2500.
