Summary: I gifted this to my sister and its hardly been 5 months and she has already had 2 issues with the laptop for which she had to take it to the Sony service center.. I have owned a Sony Vaio laptop before and HP Pavilion as well but have never come across such issues...very disappointing..
Summary: This computer is a really big waste of money. If you are thinking about buying this, do yourself a giant favor and don't. Save your money and buy something of better quality. Window's 8 is a gigantic disappointment, and because of how this laptop is built you can't just uninstall and reinstall 7, which was very sad. This laptop lasted 20 days before it started having daily crashes and freezes. Let me be clear, I use this for school.
Summary: Comes with windows 8 - the worst operating system. No installation DVD! If the hard drive is broken there is no way to restore the system. Installation DVD costs $47. Poor reliability and poor build quality. Very upset. Not the quality of Sony. Poor reception WiFi. Really do not recommend.
Summary: i've had the computer for 4 months. I don't use it every day, and I was only using it to do some homeworks and online surfing. The 3 months worked fine; it was slow to complete some tasks, but it worked fine. Until the 4th month, it became totally slow. The computer said that the it was freezing because of high usage of the disk (100%). When i was using only internet, outlook, and sometimes itunes. The updates helped with the freezing.
Summary: I like my new Vaio E series laptop. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars is because I do not like the mouse pad area. It clicks and I have to press hard to make it respond. It also does not "drag" very well... So, I plugged in my USB mouse and love the way that works! I mainly bought my Sony Vaio E for my graphics program / Corel Draw. I was very frustrated at first having to learn Windows 8.
Summary: This laptop sucks. It's very good looking but it sucks. I've ben using it for a month now and annoys me with a new problem every day. The metro apps are awful, most of the time when I'm using the Internet Browser it crashes every 5 to 10 min. When I try to open a new page looks like it's loading and after min or two waiting tells me that something went wrong with my Wi-Fi. I have another laptop, desktop PC, tablet and a phone, and I never have problems with Wi-Fi.
Summary: Originally I ordered the Laptop in 14" and a week later it wouldn't load, so I returned and wanted to order an exchange, but I was told the computer wasn't available and I found this one 15,5" in the same price. Didn't have to pay for Return shipping either. Great Service!!
