This VAIO comes with Sony Imagination Studio VAIO Edition, Sony's exclusive pre-installed software that allows you to create music and movies like never before and easily share them. The Sony Imagination Studio features four powerful applications: Vegas, ACID, Sound Forge, and DVD Architect.

It comes pre-installed with the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium and it includes Microsoft Office Starter 2010 with limited-functionality versions of Word and Excel (learn more below).

Bold and Bright

Developed by the same people you trust to engineer amazing flat-panel HDTVs, this laptop features exceptional picture quality. The 14-inch (1366 x 768) widescreen display includes an LED backlight that helps ensure a bright display with lower power consumption for improved battery life.

Rapid Wake

With Sony's 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.

Take It to the Big Screen

Whether you're watching stunning high definition content or enjoying video captured from your compatible camcorder, you can play back HD content on your compatible big screen HDTV with a high level of resolution. An HDMI output delivers both your video and audio via a single HDMI cable (sold separately), providing the optimal digital connection to your HDMI-enabled HDTV so you can enjoy HD entertainment on the big screen without a myriad of extra cables and wires. Or if you just need to connect an external monitor, use the VGA port for a simple connection.

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, 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

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

Night Shift

Practical innovation is a cornerstone of Sony's vision, and our keyboards are no exception. The keyboard features precisely engineered keys to create a comfortable and intuitive typing experience. When typing in dim light, an LED backlight creates a pleasant glow, framing the individual keys and illuminating the lettering to make it even easier to find the right keys.

And with certain programs, you make hand gestures in front of your camera to skip songs, turn pages, or turn the volume up.

The Handiest Port Around

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.

Have had this for awhile and am just now getting around to writing a review. I got this before the latest Windows disaster came out specifically to upgrade before that. Also, wanted something with a blu-ray player. The blu-ray player feature works great and I was floored by how good the picture quality was when watching movies. The laptop is light enough and small enough that it is easy to travel with. Looking back I'm happy with this purchase and would recommend product if you can still get it with Windows 7.

This is a Win7 version of this laptop, and I love it. The apps that Sony is loading are absolutely cool, and I like the fact that now I can control my other Sony devices via this laptop (PS3 or Sony Media Player). The rest is typical, Intel i5 and BluRay. I don't think I will upgrade this to Win8, but that is another story :)
