Summary: Laptop worked for exactly 6 months before the monitor went out. Two different technicians came out to fix it, couldn't fix it and requested to send to repair center. Warranty denied because they claimed that a slight ding to the corner of the case meant that the laptop was damaged and no longer under warranty. They do not support their hardware. DO NOT BUY SONY.
Summary: 100% advisable. Maybe not the best computer for big and heavy tasks but for me is the perfect ultrabook for regular house and office work duties. Fast, slim and good looking too! It is a nice thing to have the touch screen with the new windows 8 but to be honest I practically never use it, basically because I don't want to clean my screen from finger spots every day!
Summary: This computer has replaced an 11.6" Acer that I loved, but needed a speed upgrade. Upsides: I'm liking the speed and light weight of the computer. It's slim and has a great design, which is Sony's strength. I am loving the 1-2 second turn-on when I open the screen. The SSD quickness made me go and upgrade my desktop computer too, so it has clearly impressed me. Battery life is decent (4-5 hours).
Summary: i bought this item because I want to have something I could use and honestly fit in my backpack for school. I like the touch screen features. I like that it has a SSD but haven't figured out how to get to it. I'm pleased with the overall performance so far. I'm a programmer and I didn't have any problems installing any of my software, of course ISO's and extracting software comes in handy.
Summary: Very, very good computer but Win 8 with a touch screen makes no sense for the productive types. If you are serous about what you do on a computer, don't turn you laptop into a tablet. I called SONY the day I got it to ask of I could downgrade to Win7. Beware, Win8 is for tablets not PC and laptops. Run from this giant mistake of an offering.
Summary: it is very cute and light in weight. and I was surprised that I thought I was not going care about if it touch screen or not, I thought I was not going to really need it but I was totally wrong. I got so used to it in less tan three days, and now even I am working on my friends laptop I just couldn't help touching their screens expecting it will scroll down as my finger touch it..
Summary: Everything that I hoped it would be and more...Windows eight with the touch screen is awsome...i find the value for price paid was fantastic when compared with the other ultra books I shopped.
