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.

Amazing piece of machine!

Tpham, Amazon

  • 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.

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.

Very Fast

Guy313, Amazon
17 November 2012
  • Summary: Good computer. Windows 8 comes preloaded which is a pain. More trouble than it's worth with a non touch screen computer. The computer it's self is very fast. Ergonomics are good. Keyboard is still a good usable size. Don't love the mouse pad, but easy fix with a blue tooth mouse. Screen is average although the graphics when on my standard 1080 p monitor are above average. There is a light sensor that automatically sets screen brightness.

Great product for the price

timn03, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this computer because I wanted something portable and aesthetically appealing that could also handle moderate gaming. Portability This computer is just slightly thinner and lighter than my 2008 aluminum-body MacBook. It's very easy to travel with. The only downside is I don't know how durable carbon fiber is. From what I've read it's supposed to be very durable. But with my Mac I would often stack a textbook or other 2-5 lb item on top and not worry about it.

Hervorragendes Gerät mit kleinen Scwächen

Tobi, Amazon
27 September 2013
  • Summary: Ich habe mir das Notebook primär für mein Studium gekauft. Daher waren für mich insbesondere ein kompakter Formfaktor und ein leichtes Design wichtig. Um das Notebook auch für Video/Bildbearbeitung und gelegentliches Spielen nutzen zu können war mir auch ein leistungsstarker Prozessor und eine potente GPU wichtig. Aus diesem Grund ist die VAIO S-Serie bei mir in die nähere Auswahl gekommen um mein defektes Acer Aspire Timeline X 3820tg zu ersetzen.

Su pequeño tamaño ayuda

macario__, Ciao

  • Summary: Si hablamos del Sony VAIO estamos hablando de un ordenador portátil con grandes prestaciones y de una alta calidad. Esto se ve reflejado en su precio, que ronda los 1600 euros dependiendo siempre de dónde lo compremos. Por su aspecto nos damos cuenta de que es un portátil muy bonito, con un diseño minimalita y de colores claros, que hacen que ese toque minimalista entre más por los ojos, que te atraiga más el comprarlo.

Notebook top, Win 8 Flop

uwe, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: das Notebook ist m.E, kaum zu toppen, das noch unausgereifte Betriebssystem Win 8 war bei mir nicht davon zu überzeugen, im Homenetzwerk mit mult. Komponenten (Router, NAS, 15 Workstations, 25 über W-lan eingebundene Geräte) - und das, obwohl ich mich seit 20 Jahren intensiv mit IT beschäftige. Hier muss man noch etwas abwarten - für die "Betaversion von Win 8" kann aber das Spitzennotebook nichts. Ging deshalb zurück. Danke an Amazon, es gab trotz vorkonfigur.

Moderne Technik in schönem Gewand

Sebastian Senck, Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: Der Mann von Welt gönnnt sich ja gerne mal was. Und damit er dafür nicht immer in einen Apple Store pilgern muss hat Sony hier ein tolles Stück Technik herausgebracht (Ich möchte hier jetzt aber keine Fanboy Diskussion starten, sondern habe das Macbook Pro lediglich bei manchen Eigenschaften zum Vergleich herangezogen.) Klingen die technischen Daten auf den ersten Blick gut bis sehr gut, so ist man dann doch etwas erstaunt, wenn man das Notebook in Händen hält.
