Summary: I'm glad I got the Win 7, since most of my stuff are pre Win 8. I found lot of my stuff was not compatible with Win 8 and would not work. I like the Bluetooth compatibility of the computer that I can use lots of Bluetooth devices, like printers, compact keyboard, and etc. It's awesome! Plus this is very slim and attractive silver look and light weight. I can put it in my computer case and have room for more stuff.
A fair product when you put money and delivery at same plate...

Summary: I am user from Sony Vaio at least 5 years. Tested small and big sizes, but if you are a "road warrior" like myself, the 13"is the best option. The weight is perfect to carry on backpack or hand bag (without feel pain next week). The new hard disk (SSD) make the machine faster and better, once don't feel more shock problems...but can be a little cheaper.
Summary: First, to give an idea of which laptops I'm used to, and first impressions of the Vaio ultrabook in comparison to these the Thinkpad series for company/work purpose(from the earlier models to quite recent ones, but not 'ultrabook' thinkpad like X1 carbon) Asus G74sx gaming laptop (personal/gaming use) A thinkpad T61 I have lying around. Looks: With the lid shut down, this is the definite winner with its silver/Aluminum glossy and quasi-business look.
Summary: PROS: - small (but not the smallest ultra-book) foot print - light (but not the lightest) - aluminum case - decent/OK ultra-book screen - large hard-drive CONS: - chic-let keyboard (poor design, hard to type fast, accurate) - keys pop-up on keyboard (& don't re-seat) - customer service starts-out good but fails to pull-through and serve the customer - depot service (even within 1st year), unless extended service warranty purchased - poor touch-pad (synaptics) touch-pad -...
Summary: I don't care for this computer AT ALL for the following reasons: Keyboard: it sucks. It just does. Since they keyboard is small and my hands are also small you would THINK typing is easy, but I have to press hard like a typewriter for the letters to work (usually more than once). Here's a sample of what my typing looks like without spending time backspacing, typing hard, etc.: Tis keyboard never ors.I have to pressreally hard,especially on thespace bar.
Summary: PROS: The size is just right as a cross between portability and function. Great for kicking back and surfing the web yet still big enough to do everyday tasks and office work. I sold a nice 10.1" android tablet to buy this open box unit. The tablet was just too limiting for me, but this Sony is perfect for what I wanted.
Summary: So far I really like this computer. I've had a Sony Vaio before so I am very familiar with the brand. It is a great size for traveling and for taking to a conference, meeting, or class. Battery life for me has been a little over 6 hours and it does start up really fast as advertised. The one thing I don't like about this Vaio T series is that keys are very flush with the keyboard and sometimes makes typing a little challenging so it takes some getting used to.
Summary: I bought this "refurbished" Sony Ultrabook for my son because his other computer-HP, ceased to work after three years. The noisy fan is constantly on. There are two USBs, one HDMi, and a slot for a SD card. No CD drive. It's about 3.5 lbs. The brightness of the screen needs to be adjusted. This model is running with Windows 7 Professional. Let's see if my son can have any success with this model.
Summary: Update: Sony has had my laptop now for about a month and I got an email that the parts to repair my laptop are back ordered... Hey Sony, keep the laptop and refund my money, I'll go buy the Samsung, Acer, Apple, Toshiba, Lenovo, etc...anything besides this thing. There are a lot of positives about this laptop however the two negatives far outweigh them. The battery is locked into place with three screws.
Summary: The T-series VAIO ultrabook has some quality issues, to say the least, which is surprising given Sony's reputation and Vaio's premium brand. I could've bought a standard notebook at this price point with more functionality (e.g. optical drive) to replace my older 15.6" Acer which died after 4 years of awesome performance. I probably should've bought another Acer. This is my first Sony laptop and first ultrabook, purchased for grad school.
