Overall, laptop ok, Sony customer service disappointing
2 August 2013
Summary: I have had this laptop for 10 months. Overall, I have been satisfied with the performance of the computer, but I am very disappointed with Sony's customer service. Shortly after receiving the laptop, one of the 5 rubber pads on the bottom, came off.
Summary: When I first unboxed and tinkered with this computer, I loved it. The touch screen seemed neat, Windows 8 seemed user friendly, and overall I was happy. After a few hours of playing with this computer, I was completely frustrated and dissatisfied with this piece of junk.
Summary: I just received my computer yesterday. I've been using computers for 30 years. I have to tell you that Windows 8 is probably one of the worst operating systems I've ever experienced. People complain about Vista but at least there's something familiar about it.
Summary: The performance of this laptop is reasonable at best. Some of the issues I face are, it does not lock the screen all the time when the lid is closed like other laptops. If it is not connected to power, then it takes atleast 5 mins to use after opening it. Sony's customer service is not that great.
Summary: I purchased my Sony Vaio in November 2012. Although I believe it is a great product in terms of performance for its price, I have had two major problems within 3 months of purchase. First, there is this high frequency noise, which is apparently common in some sony Vaios.
Summary: First of all, i had bought this refurbished from amazon and was not happy the first few days. This does not come with anything sony at all on it, except for the lid. I was really looking forward to using the imagination studio, but there is none because amazon wipes out the hard drive completely.
