Summary: This product is wonderful. its like a spaceship :)) i can do my programming and it is very good with the games that requires high level hardware.. blue ray is...(i couldn't find a word because it is something else).. to make the long story short, it's really good..
Summary: This is simply an amazing laptop. This is coming from someone who has bought 2 other laptops in the past two years, including a unibody macbook pro 2010. I think this is just as pleasing to the eye as the sleek macbook pro, and it doesn't get hot at all after hours of gaming, unlike the overheating macbook pro. Of course, battery life is terrible, but other than that, this is a sleek beast that will satisfy all your computing/gaming/designing needs.
Summary: PURCHASED December 2012 I WENT FOR THE SONY AS ITS A BRAND I TRUSTED Anyway 1 week later the track pad stopped working. I SHOULD HAVE MENTIONED THAT I Hardly used the laptop throughout the First year and Periodically the trackpad would start working again so i'm thinking must be software issue perhaps try asnd update .
Summary: "Following the lead of Apple's MacBook and most of today's high-end laptops, the Vaio uses a keyboard with an isolated design," quote from CNET review... Sony was the first to develop and pioneer this style of keyboard not Apple..
Summary: I have this Laptop and it is very fast because mine has 8GB of RAM instead of 4GB. The only real problem apart from the webcam is the battery life. It is quite understandable because of the 1080p Display and everything else it has, but I thought it would have been a lot worse. People are saying that it takes forever to start up, but to be honest its reasonably quick. Compared to other Laptops I have had in the past.
Summary: A good spec for a laptop but let down by poor build quality. When 10 months old the dc power socket fell out . Despite 2 year guarantee Sony would not repair under warranty as they said I must have damaged it - which I did not. Cost me over £100 for repair . I would not buy Sony product again. Their loss!
Summary: I've had this computer for a few months now, its never failed to perform any task I ask of it, it rips through DX10/11 Games @ Med/High settings, and its productivity performance is outstanding, with the 17" 1080p HD glossy screen, BluRay player and the outstanding sound performance, HD media playback is fantastic! Upgraded the Hard Disk to a SSD, not sure maxing the Ram to 8GB will make it any faster, it's very quick already.
Pros: Very fast cpu/gpu combo producing some amazing HD video effects, cheaper than a Macbook, 1080p res , blu ray player . . . . the list is virtually endless.
Cons: Sony bloatware - althogh very good, it slows the machine down by about 30% fresh install of windows recommended (or linux if preferable)
