Poor battery nearly ruins user experience

Summary: As a production and entertainment tool, it's pretty standard, at times great. The touch screen functionality is generally good, although inconsistent when browsing the web (depending on the page's settings, menu items that hover and expand can only be click selected, for example).
Warning - "Reconditioned" means you're buying someone else's lemon!

Summary: Very disappointed!!! Won't buy a "reconditioned" computer again. This Sony Viao desktop, All-in-One has been nothing but trouble, as in - loses connectivity often, processing speed is actually slower than my 5 year old Sony Viao laptop(!
I still think that this was the worst computer I ever purchased

Summary: All said, I still think that this was the worst computer I ever purchased. This machine is very slow, I had it sent to warranty service to check on hardware status, as It is so erratic. Came back, fixed, but same EXTRA SLOW system.
Bad at first, but with $150 in upgrades its much better.

Summary: Came with an i5, 4 gigs of RAM, and 750 gb HD. It was really, very slow, and it was tough to even surf the web without experiencing serious lag. I doubled the RAM ($35) and replaced the HD with a solid-state drive ($110) and now the computer is wonderful.
Summary: Overall I like 'all in one'. I like the feature of the option of keeping the battery half charged so it lasts longer and the touch screen which makes it easier often to perform many functions saving a document. I miss having a dvd/cd drive. And would like to have an hdmi port.
Summary: Very cool all in one with a touch screen. It also has the interesting capability of being used as a large tablet and can be fun for my kid to play with. The screen is large enough that it can be used in split screen mode by swiping half way from the left.
Summary: Pretty cool computer, but the screen on mine was very fragile. It slid out of by hands and landed on my couch (about 6 inches) and a small hairline crack formed on the lower right corner of the screen.
Summary: The hardware here is excellent even though it isn't cutting edge. The screen isn't 1080p but looks great, especially for video. Text isn't razor sharp but is acceptable. The screen is responsive and the house and keyboard are nice. All of my issues are with the software. Windows isn't good.
It would take pages to tell you how much I love this computer!

Summary: I waited until I had used this computer for at least a month before I wrote a review. I wanted to list every feature I love about it but no one wants to read a book here in reviews so I will do my best to keep this short. I was intimidated by all the hate for Windows 8 but I really like it!
