It's not a bad computer and it's still running good and silent
24 September 2014
Summary: I've had this computer for a year and 7 or 8 months thus far. It's not a bad computer and it's still running good and silent. That's awesome considering how often and how long I'm using this computer. This is my first time with a computer other than HP and Gateway. The only problem I've had with this computer so far is reinstalling Windows... :( not once but twice! This could have been my own doing. I am not sure. It was during my upgrading to the Windows 8.1.
Summary: I waited to write are view for this laptop because I wanted to see what I was really dealing with. It just so happened that I was in the market for a notebook the week before this computer came out. In all honesty, I could have paid about 30-40% less for a computer with the same features but I was willing to spend a little more on this computer because I run a small business and travel a lot and needed something that was durable and reliable.
Fast, unstable hardware which completely ceases to function the moment the warranty expires

Summary: Blue screens often, touch screen randomly stops responding or erratically clicking/dragging all over regardless of operating system. UEFI makes dual-booting Windows and Linux nearly, if not completely impossible.
Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this computer from day one. I actually had to return this PC to the store 3 times on the FIRST day because every one that came out of the box was broken in some way - hard drive failures, overheats, and one that wouldn't boot up at all. Finally on the fourth try, we got one that seemed to be ok. WOW, was that wrong!!!
Summary: I don't really need a laptop much. Most everything I do can be done with an Internet Appliance, and I have two: a Google Tablet and a Chromebook. But when I need to process something on the road - like photos in Photoshop or video in Premiere, this is a great little machine. Unfortunately, I've had to replace the hard drive and keyboard, but they were relatively inexpensive and easy to install with a little help from YouTube.
Summary: It said like new condition, but the condition was so poor (scratches were everywhere) when I got it. After I used it for three month, the window system had just stopped. After ten month used, the screen goes out completely, Now I can't use it anymore (it is pending to the sony service center) I wish I could buy another one!!
