Simple Multi-Gesture Touchpad

The multi-gesture touchpad is the most intuitive way to interact with your laptop. Scroll with two fingers, pinch to zoom in and out of images, swipe to flip through pages or photos, and you can even rotate an image, and much more. And rather than clicking on a button, just click on the left or right mouse areas in order to activate those functions.

Listen Up

Integrated stereo speakers utilize the Clear Phase and xLOUD technologies, which delivers a richer, bolder and louder presence. xLOUD technology enhances speaker volume without sacrificing quality.

Resume instantly with your data secured with Rapid Wake (view larger).

Rapid Wake

With Sony's own Rapid Wake technology, you never have to shut down your computer again. Whether you are done working for the day or just heading out to get some coffee, simply close the lid to put your PC into sleep mode. Then, when you're ready to start again, resume in 2 seconds with your data safe and secure. If you are unplugged, don't worry about draining your battery. Your PC can stay in sleep mode for days.

The Handiest Port Around

Forgot to charge your phone or mp3 player? Just plug your device via USB cord into the USB sleep charge port and start charging. Even if the PC is shut down and not plugged in you can still use it. And don't forget that the USB 3.0 port is perfect for connecting a compatible external hard drive and allowing you to wait less and transfer data up to 10x faster than USB 2.0.

Take It to the Big Screen

This VAIO PC also comes with an HDMI output, delivering both your video and audio via a single HDMI cable (sold separately) and providing the optimal digital connection to your HDMI-enabled HDTV.

HD Web Camera

The built-in webcam and microphone let’s your family and friends see you clearly while chatting. The Exmor sensor helps guarantee a clear, bright picture even in dimly-lit rooms. And with select applications, you can use the webcam and a few simple hand gestures to turn pages, skip songs, adjust the volume and more.

This laptop isn't too big and is a good size for my son. It is a nice laptop. Be aware that it doesn't come with a cd\dvd drive.

Great laptop, I read some reviews online and on here about it citing a less than desirable processor speed. But really when it comes down to it, with three or four programs running its still pretty fast. Its great for a student, papers and projects are a breeze, with multiple chrome browsers open and even my DJ mixing software.

Received this as a holiday gift, surprised it's preloaded for 64 bits Windows 8 core instead of Windows 7 that would be excellent for as shipped combo of 4GB DD3 memory, 750GB HDD (5,400 RPM drive is "slow") and used its automated recovery to reformat/restore C: drive / active partition just to be sure it's working. Surprised that Sony support already has downgrade directions and Windows 7 drivers for this newly released model as I believe many seasoned users will eventually downgrade. PLEASE make sure you save/keep the recovery partition and backup your Windows 8 license as it does NOT come with a MS Sticker so that you can re-install it later on. I hate the Metro interface on a non-touch screen and the touchpad is not very responsive so a mouse for scrolling is a must except when seated on a bus or economy airplane seat - go to cnet and download a free W8 "Start" menu to bring back that familiar startup, I opted to bypass & deactivate Metro so it's functioning like my other mix of Win7 desktops & laptop devices, fast & bootup/wake-from-sleep mode is fast, less than 40 seconds vs. 2 minutes for older Windows OS. The Apps are cute and designed to emulate iOS and Android widgets, preloaded games are fun but I plan to delete them to free up extra space, plan to use mostly 32 bits "programs" like MS Office 2010 instead of the Apps version. Video resolution is good enough for HD viewing on its 11.6" screen on the go with its 4+ hours playback time, enough for a transcon/coast-to-coast flight to watch my own preloaded DVD's or movies. The absence of DVD/CD drive isn't a big deal, owning 2 Dell's with optional drives for past 5 years and I haven't missed them on the go, most programs and apps/installations can be easilyy done via USB thumb drive.

The laptop is cute and compact but i gotta say that it takes some getting used to. i like the Windows 8 feature, even though i'm used to Vista coming from the Sony Vaio E11 series. What made me give this computer 4 stars is that it operates a little slower than i'd expected. not mindnumbingly so, by any means, but slightly slower than my 2008 vaio. i feel that sometimes it experiences some questionable lag time, particularly concerning web browsing. it's minor and it's not like that all the time, but enough for me to notice. Also occassionally i'll have issues with the mouse freezing up, to which i fix by pressing the power button. but it's annoying when it happens, though infrequent.
I love the layout though. it's easy to navigate even though you have to get used to the "touchtoney" feel in that it's easy to switch screens when you don't intend to pan. a light touch is best.
it's smooth and sleek and easy to carry anywhere. i really like the computer, and would purchase from sony again. :D

I'm not one of those tech savvy types with an overinflated sense of entitlement, so I'm very happy with this little computer. It holds a charge for six hours and I can take it anywhere in the house, (or world for that matter, unlike my 10-year-old desktop which is full of viruses and all of our crap.) I use it for word processing (sold separately), and general internet: Blogger, Facebook, the library, recipes, Pandora, Signing Savvy, and other work related stuff. On a Grandma note: you can use the keypad to adjust text size which is a plus for those of us who now wear bifocals. That, and you can entertain small grandsons with captivating train videos on YouTube. It's not meant to be a powerhouse computer, and I didn't need a powerhouse computer, so I am very pleased with this product.

This laptop comes with Windows 8 64-bit, which is a big disappointment compared to Windows 7. However, the start up time is a big reclaimer to the otherwise disappointing operating system. The battery life is excellent on average I can get about 4 hours and 50 minutes. The laptop can play 720p videos smoothly; however, at 1080p it tends to lag and not sync the audio with the video correctly. I believe this is due to the resolution of the screen and the necessity to change resolutions to a lower pixel display and not necessarily the processor.

Light gaming is not a problem. I have been able to play Starcraft 2 on medium settings comfortably as well as Civilizations 5.

USB ports are very tight and make it difficult to input external hard drives.
Charger and charger port disconnection is EXTREMELY difficult to the point that I am afraid it will cause damage.

Final thoughts:
Overall I would buy this laptop again. The value for the price is great. I also recommend getting the accidental damage warranty.
