Summary: All is great except the sound....if you use for speaker calls or expect to listen to music, use a bluetooth device. The speakers are not good, and are behind the unit when it is standing. It boots quickly and everything else has been great so far.
A good portable system that you can drag around the house. Nice gear 7.5-10

Summary: Would go better with an SSD, but adequate. 8GB of ram is prefered. Very nice response from the touch screen. Good clour but not true HD. Turn the junk off, install start8 and your up and running.
Summary: HHD to slow, everything alse excellent I was pretty excited about this purchase. Now that it's here, I still want to love it and I think I do. There have been some challenges with assimilating to this new format. Not a fault of the computer, Windows 8 is... ummmm, interesting to say the least. Once you get used to it this computer is the perfect application for Windows 8. (Hint... learn the shortcuts!!
Summary: The best way to upgrade a laptop or pc is to 1. swap HDD to SSD 2. add more memory 3. uninstall up bloatware I did just that for this i3 giant tablet, with a 240GB Toshiba SSD, 16GB 12800 Sodimm (8GB is not max as it says on the user's guide, with 64bit OS, you can install larger memory and recognized by the windows 8), and removed apps that I don't use.
Annoyances to cope with, but there's some good aspects too. Wait for it to mature.

Summary: THE BAD: The Vaio software bundled is a nuisance when you first start setting things up, especially Vaio Update, it doesn't even work really. It was unable to install any updates through the application, though luckily you can click each update individually and download them from the Sony Website, unless the updater gives you a link which doesn't exist, which did happen to me. SO yeah, that is pretty useless. Sound was originally an issue too.
