Summary: This seems more for kids than for people who are serious PC users. I absolutely hate the opening tiles and the extremely touchy touchpad! It's difficult to get anywhere inside the PC to change settings, especially things like SOUNDS, CONTROL PANEL, PROGRAMS. Gone is access to ALL PROGRAMS. I've had this item for months and get so frustrated with it after 10 o 15 minutes that I throw it into my sock drawer!
Summary: With this computer it fits all my gaming need, but there is only a couple of downsides. The aluminum is very anoying and can smudge easily. Also I did pull of one of the rubber things but that was because I gave it a run for it's money. Overall it's great and I totally recommend it!
Summary: I love the design but still finding my way around all the options. Loaded with Windows 8 but the part I need the most, Office, is conveniently missing so need to shell out more cash. Not Sony's fault. I needed assistance and Sony techs were excellent at helping me with my issues. I will review again as I become more familiar. I you care about a nice-looking computer besides the usage, this is the one!
Summary: I was reluctant to order this based on other reviews I've read here, but it had the features I needed, and the smaller size for traveling. I have another Sony laptop, much older, so I trust the brand name. I had none of the problems others had, it performed perfectly on an extended 3 week trek through Glacier National Park, Yellowstone, and the Grand Teton's. I use this to download and work on my pictures as well as for email and communication.
Summary: I live every thing about this little computer accept windows 8 with their back door and the stupid app thing in windows. If the operating system was different this would be a great pc but with Windows 8 its is still very good and for the price you cant beat the sony quality.
Summary: the reason i buy this laptop is because it says on the specification that it has a cd player and burner. This is so deceiving and not true. i just receive the item and I was so disappointed that it has no cd rom. If I could easily return this item I would have. Not a good experience with amazon shopping.
Summary: just over a month after purchasing this machine on amazon, it has crashed its os (Windows 8) almost 4 times forcing me to reload it each time. I lost a lot of important docs the first time as I had not backed them up. on top of it, trying to use the preloaded skype is fruitless as it freezes as soon as you try making a call.i have no idea whts e problem is but whatever it is I have lost trust in buying online
