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: 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: It is fine and upto the standard of my usage, however, the basic application MSoffice does not work as it was promised. The font size is not much adjustable on the screen, either too small or big. there is neither "home" key or "end" key on the keyboard for moving to the beginnig or end of a lengthy document, which I consider a drawback. Also the color resolution is not upto the standard, images are not sharp.
Summary: I haven't bought a laptop in 5 years, so obviously they have improved greatly since my last one. This is one way more sexier and sleeker than my old VAIO. Also, it is lighter, faster and the speakers are of superb quality. I could go on, but comparing my old laptop to this one is moot. PROS: - boots up super fast. I didn't count. I would say 3 seconds. - keyboard. It is spaced out well and easy to type on. - battery life is ab-average. - light and easy to take around.
Summary: I put 4 stars because seems I got not right result on how this machine is performed under windows 7, on windows experience index, this sony vaio with intel i5-3317 ultrabook only get 4.4 under desktop performance for windows aero. I saw many machine with i5-3317, samsung, toshiba, asus, and all of them has the score at least 6.0 for desktop aero performance. any thought on this value guys ? updated the display driver was not helping, still got 4.4.
