Summary: I wish I could give it a zero star. This one was purchased online in March 2014 and was extremely slow after three or four months usage. The fan is pretty annoying with the big noise. Can you imagine that you have to wait like forever for it to start.
Looks great - but worst nightmare to deal with bluetooth/drivers/hdmi connectivity issues

Summary: Looks great - but worst nightmare to deal with bluetooth/drivers/hdmi connectivity issues - Sony is going down because of the way they want to make money with their proprietary crap!! No wonder Apple kicked them out ...
Summary: I don't feel like writing a long drawn out review but just wanted to say this laptop is pretty much useless for me since the WiFi barely works. There are known issues (at least with ones manufactured early on) where the WiFi keeps losing connection or dropping to under 1Mbps when you go more than 15 feet from the wireless router. It's a shame because for the most part I like everything else about this laptop.
Summary: This is a pretty piece of junk. It is light and the screen is great. Too bad you won't be able to use it for much because the wifi connectivity is so awful. Slow connection speeds and the connection drops very frequently. It is a very expensive word processor. Sony keeps promising fixes but has refused to offer refunds to those of us that were waiting for these fixes and have had the laptop more than 30 days. This product is defective and should be recalled. DO NOT BUY.
Summary: I've had this Sony Vaio for about 3 weeks and the same problem always persists. It's wifi sometimes disconnects or makes the connection run very slow. I plan on changing my ultrabook for another brand.
Summary: I was planing to buy this ultrabook because it's very light and has the 4th intel cpu generation. but guess what...!!!! the other ultrabooks start from 450$ to 1200$ for the highest one (such as lenoveo yoga 13 with i7 cpu). Apple & sony laptops are overpriced always...
Summary: I returned this laptop to the Sony store (even after receiving a second/replacement for the first). The major issue remains the wifi connectivity -- despite an 18 July "update" from Sony, there is STILL a problem with the wifi. I have an above average knowledge of computers and I walked through all the basic and advanced troubleshooting steps (and, yes, my router/network works fine, I have other computers connected via 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, g and n; and, yes, I tried multiple...
