It's a Sony - but there is no Wow.</p><p>The screen is dire.

  • Summary: Sony had the opportunity to make a world beating product but have under-achieved - simply by shaving the quality off where the customer expects it - especially the screen. It is hard to understand how the screen which is such a poor piece of kit could even get into a Sony Vaio design (especially when alternative screens like Apple's Retina were around). Nothing about this product has done more than I expected - but it has done quite a lot less.
  • Pros: Portable, light, solid with touchscreen. Can have I7 CPU + 8GB memory. Intel graphics OK. SSD/hark disk quick. Build quality good. Battery life adequate. HDMI & SD sockets good. Sony software support OK. Gigabit Ethernet is fast. Battery replaceable.
  • Cons: The 13.3" screen is frankly ghastly. Reflective; colour balance awful and sensitive to screen viewing angle. It has 2 USB sockets - one USB2 one USB3. Why not make both USB3? No SPDIF output. Keyboard not backlit. Uses 2.4GHz wifi only.

Sub par product, sub par customer service.

  • Summary: At first, I had the previous generation of this computer, the non-touch screen. That one ended up being nothing but problems. The computer would shut down right after start because the fan was not functioning. Unfortunately, Sony's repair center could not identify the problem, and sent it back to me. I had to fight with Sony, and sent the computer to the repair center 3 times before they sent me this computer.
  • Pros: Its slim, has a very solid case and looks awesome. Battery life could be better, but honestly does everything I need it to do. Runs some basic games okay, and it does all the things an ultra book should do.
  • Cons: Audio quality is pretty low, does not always seem to keep up with movements on the touch screen, my nexus 7 is much better. See summary for more details.

  • Excerpt: Maybe the only drawback is the display brightness and contrast. It would also be better if the keyboard was backlit.
