Not Recommended

  • Summary: I have been a customer of Vaio for 20 years. A very happy customer. Up to now, whatever problem I had was fixed by customer services. This laptop however is the worst product I have ever seen, and unfortunately, owned. 1) Window 8 is not working properly. If you have a computer running with window 7, believe me, you don't want to change. 2) The mouse pad is a disaster. If you click one milimeter next to the area where you are supposed to, it won't work.

Above-average general laptop

J.D., Amazon
16 February 2013
  • Summary: This is better than your average laptop. Not a MacBook Pro killer, but a more than capable machine that can suit just about anyone's needs. Good: -Comfortable, satisfying keyboard. I write for a living, so trust me. Chiclet-style keys here are great. -Core i5 processor and Nvidia graphics make for great performance. Loading HD videos, opening dozens of tabs, and editing images is no problem at all on this thing.

  • Summary: Low weight, smooth touch, elegant keyboard, extraodinary screen resolution. I just like Vaio's style. The battery could hang on for ~ 4 h, not bad for me.

Amazing piece of machine!

  • Summary: I purchased it with a lightning deal on Amazon. The machine is great, especially the lightweight of it. I use it for many things including light gaming. I haven't tried heavy games such as Farcry 3 or Crysis 2. However i have heard it can play some heavy games when running with the mod BIOS. With $800 you cannot find the better laptop than this one. I have used Dell XPS 14 before this one and Dell sucks.

Satisfaction and good looks make this the best little computer money can buy...

  • Summary: Received this computer on Dec. 11, 2012. So far it's everything I was hoping it would be and more. It's gorgeous, light weight, made extremely well and has the feel of a very expensive computer. I have put this computer through several tests and it has come through with very high marks. The only exception is a strange conflict with my Norton Anti Virus and the Vaio Care Program. It seems all Vaios have this problem with Norton.

This is a great laptop....

  • Summary: You can see all the specs on You Tube. I particularly like it because of the keys' depth and spacing, the vibrant screen and the overall build. Great HD storage. Solid yet light. Works for me. An underrated winner.

Best All-Around Compact Laptop!

Vinny G, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: Update, 12/7/12: I installed an Intel 240GB SSD for $188 and Corsair Vengeance 8GB stick for $40. With the laptop at $949 for a total of $1177, I got a lightweight build of 3.8lbs, a full voltage i5 Processor, a solid mid-range discrete card, 1600x900 matte screen, 12GB RAM, and the fast responsiveness of an SSD drive. I think this is the best value out there and quite difficult to match.

Buy mac

MD, Amazon

  • Summary: This brand sucks. If you want to buy another computer in one year waste your money on this. We spent a ton of time recovering our data twice so we have decided to throw in the towel for the third and last time.

Highly advisable for experts!

  • Summary: She is a great computer with a lot more power that the tiny ultrabooks. What I do not like is really the sound. Not yet they have found no solution for him. For the rest, for normal tasks a lot of RAM, Hard Disk SSD, and super video plate, although I will always use the HD4000 as it is in these hybrid equipment. The cabinet fashion repeats with my predecessor VPC-SA4FGX/BI.
