Summary: I gave it one star because its a Sony, that's it. I had high hopes but windows 8 sucks, the mouse sucks, the computer shell sucks because all you see is finger/oil marks. I feel like it was made half-ass I really loved there previous laptops.
VAIOs are great, until they aren't. Then they are very bad.

Summary: If your wireless drivers mysteriously break and are unfixable, as mine was, and you have to re-install Windows, you are in for a world of pain. Sony's site has drivers that will literally make your computer inoperable. I am on my third re-install now, first I downloaded a rootkit from Sony's site, then a battery program bundled with the VAIO control center hosed me. I will never buy a VAIO again.
Summary: I bought this laptop for university work and also for internet use. The wordpad is a basic but adequate one. Very impressed with the laptop. Its very nice looking, took a while to get used to windows 8 but now am finding it easy to use.
