Summary: looks nice but very annoying glitches showed up soon after it was received. The screen brightness seems to have a mind of its own and does not stay at the level you set it. Extremely annoying issue! The most irritating feature is the seemingly inbuilt function to turn off its connective abilities to the internet at intervals!! You have to go into the settings, turn off the wifi connection and then turn it on again to get it to re connect.
Summary: The volume of the speakers is so low they are basically unusable. Tech support was no help at all. Basically brushed me off. If I wasn't in the middle of Iraq, I would send it back. We were testing this out for purchase for others in the company. Looks like we will pass and go back to Dell.
Summary: I am a faithful user of Sony, in the past I have had various models vaio and I can honestly say that this is not my favorite because while computer performance is good, I think it could be better if they did not have so many junk software preinstalled and if designers have done a better distribution of USB ports, network, HDMI and VGA, which are all on the right side of the machine, making it very difficult to use a mouse for right-handed people.
Summary: This is my fourth Vaio computer. All of my prior machines (two desktops and two laptops) have been fabulous, so when I needed to replace my last Vaio laptop, I went to the top of the line. I expected great things and have been sorely disappointed. From the time I've taken it out of the box (about 8 months ago), I have had nothing but trouble. I'm to the point of thinking about returning it.
Summary: When I bought this laptop, I ccould not have been more pleased. The appearance, weight and function are wonderful. But after just a month the speakers stopped working. Sony's online tech support was unable to fix so now I have to do a whole system reboot. I paid the extra money for a higher end laptop and a Sony based on their reputation. I'm disappointed in the issues I'm already having.
Summary: Insgesamt nur ein OK. Bei aktivem WLAN war der Akku meines Gerätes bereits nach 2 Stunden am Ende. Vllt. liegt es am ständig hörbaren Lüfter, obwohl dieser über die Systemeinstellungen bereits auf Leise konfiguriert war. Die Verarbeitung ist zwar hochwertig, durch das schwarze, lackierte und somit leicht glänzende Aluminium sieht er aber leider sehr minderwertig aus. Insgesamt stimmt für mich die Preis/Leistung also nicht.
Summary: .. ist aber nicht so der Hit. Meiner alter Laptop mit altem DualCore und Win7 auf SSD ist flotter als der hier. Das mag einerseits an der HDD liegen, andererseits auch an der ganzen Software, die mitgeliefert und nicht sauber deinstalliert werden kann. Neu aufsetzen kann man Win8 auch nicht, Sony liefert weder ein Installationsmedium, noch eine Installation ohne deren Software. Schade.
