Summary: ZERO STARS (AMAZON REQUIRES 1 MINIMUM) Piece of junk, low quality, and poor design. The case looks nice but there are trim pieces that snap on and fall off constantly if you handle the laptop like any other. Its been to service 3 times in the first year and would have been back more often but need it for school. Sony just puts it back and after 1yr warranty I will have to pay to have repaired many times a year.
Summary: I give this computer 5 stars because it is awesome! I have had no problems with it whatsoever. It functions perfectly. I love the backlit keyboard. Exactly what I was searching for. Love it!! I highly recommend to anyone.
Summary: I can't write personally about this computer as I purchased it for my fiance but, I will say that she hasn't ever said a bad thing about it. A lot of her coworkers have more expensive laptops and they told her that they want hers. The lit keys are really helpful when she's on at night. She wasn't crazy about the layout of the new windows but she's gotten used to it and you can change it back to the classis view.
Summary: I Purchased this laptop and it arrived with no issues. However 2 weeks into what i would term as medium to light medium SAFE use. I began getting these blue screens saying your pc has ran into problems collecting data. And it would restart. Upon restarting it would say no operating system found. So I would turn off and turn on again and after about 3 turn ons it would restart and boot (sometimes into recovery/repair mode). Now one occurrence can be over looked.
Summary: LOVE LOVE LOVE my new laptop. Using it everyday for about 3weeks now & i'm having no real issue with it...EXCEPT the damn touch pad OMG. It's a bit frustrating when I've transitioned from an HP with a smooth very responsive touchpad. This one sticks sometimes, the double tapping function to select an item sticks sometimes as well, and it's not as smooth as i'd like it to be. Besides that, i'm in loveeee! windows 8 isn't that bad, once you get the hang of it.
Summary: I love the look of it, it took me a while to understand windows 8 though and im still not sure i get it completely. But the laptop as a whole is great, the only quarrel i have is with the mouse pad i dont really like how the whole thing is the clicker i think i prefer to have the left and right clickers at the bottom rather than through out the whole mouse pad thing.
Summary: It's a good machine. It lacks significantly in resistance but is a good machine for the price and results produced just practice extra caution when transporting. Windows 8 = 7/10 Overall a useless (and soon to be outdated) skill you are forced into mastering. Recommend disabling touch pad. It gets very frustrating quickly. The original Vaio I purchased was returned within 30 days due to catastrophic defect.
