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.
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: 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!!
Summary: This laptop worked great until yesterday. I was doing my normal email, surfing stuff and it just DIED. BLACK. No lights no nothing. Checked power supply. It was OK. Have to assume dead MB. Reluctant to spend money on diagnosis but if I do, I will report back.
Summary: I am a college student and avid blogger/vlogger and really only needed a computer to do my school work as well as some social networking and occasionally play videos. I had a Dell Inspiron before this that ended up having to replace the motherboard twice so I really just needed a little PC to get the job done and wasn't looking to spend much. I purchased my laptop directly from the Sony website for $400.
Summary: i still have a problems with the windows and software and operation system and i want to sent back the laptop because it doesn't working correct would you give me your address or some other opportunity to connect at you thank you
Summary: I have had this laptop for less than a year and have had to replace the motherboard, 3 hard drives, and have had a ton of startup and driver issues. From my research all of this seems to be pretty common for these machines. I would not recommend this laptop.
