Summary: Love the design. Keys are really thin. Takes a while to navigate through windows 8 but it's awesome and new. the screen is a little glossy> meaning you can see things in the background besides whatever your working on on your computer. but overall it's what I wanted and more.
Summary: Was looking for a PC version of the Macbook Air, and this was that and then some. At 3.5 lbs very light. From cold start to doing real work in about 15 seconds. Hybrid drive technology gives best of SSD and spinning disk storage. I'm using just over half the 500 GB of hard disk space, and getting a 256 GB flash drive alone would have sent price up at least $300. Call me crazy but I really like Windows 8.
Windows 8, contrary to the evaluation by newspapers!

Summary: In my life, I never have had a laptop computer, because I am a destop computer guy, and I don't see any benefits from using a laptop. Then, with this new Windows 8 touchscreen ultrabook, it changed my view dramatically. It is incredibly responsive to touch, and it is the fastest to start, from a cold start to internet browsing, it only takes 5 seconds. Incredible, but true.
Summary: What noise? We looked at every ultrabook available at Pantip Plaza in Bangkok (5 floors of computers). Lots of light weight good lookers, my wife loved the Vaio. We returned home to do the real research. I was really put off by the reports of noise - I'm an audio engineer and the slightest bit of noise can drive me nuts. I'm in the process of rebuilding my desktop to run silently and all I can say is that I hope it can be half as quiet as this laptop is.
Summary: Love this computer.It is extremely fast and has a beautiful HD screen. I also enjoy the touch-screen capability. All at about 3.5 pounds! The transition from Windows XP to Windows 8 takes some getting use to, but worth the trouble. I strongly recommend this machine.
Summary: Not sure why my previous review is gone, but I want to say I am very happy with my purchase! It is extremely light (~3.5 lbs) and fast. Battery lasts ~4.5 hours under normal use (internet, etc.) The multi-touch touchpad is really pragmatic and comfortable once you get used to it. You may want to buy a keyboard cover from Sony for about $20. It's a bit expensive but worth it.
Summary: I'm very satisfied with this laptop. The best laptop among the ultrabooks. Touchscreen is very responsive. Also it works fast. The design is awesome with aluminum. Also it is very thin and light.
