Summary: WOW the active pen and sketchbook pro thogether on this computer are great. I bought only as a drawing tool, but I decided to instal office and now is my travel laptop (the other one is a movile workstation). Great batery life, great power (Even 3D studio work fine, and the render time is amazing for something that is a tablet).
Summary: It updated automatically to 8.1 which not does not connect to an outside projector or TV... Great! a presentation laptop where I can't do presentations with! WIDI does not work after and I have been back and forth to no avail To add insult to injuries, SONY announced that they were are leaving the laptop business. I wish I had knew that. Much better machines at lower price.
Summary: I should have read the reviews first before being sold on how great it is by the Best Buy rep. I purchased this model for my son's birthday. I got up early and went down stairs to connect it to the internet. I tried 3 or 4 times to connect and failed each time. Finally I went upstairs where the router is and it finally connected. Later I took it into the bed room and it would not connect again. Then I read these reviews and wish I had prior to buying it.
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.
Summary: I own the Sony Vaio Duo 13 with i7-4650, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD and Windows 8 Pro. It is an impressive convertible ultrabook. Build: The device feels very solid and has a premium feel. - The left and right edges of the screen bezel has a slight lip near the middle that catches your fingernail (it's not perfectly flush).
Definitely cool Hybrid with unacceptable WIfi problem

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.
