Simple Multi-Gesture Touchpad

I have had this laptop for about a week. Here are some of my thoughts:

It is super portable. I did not want a larger laptop, because I have to carry it around all the time.
The screen has a widescreen effect so it creates the illusion of a larger screen. I don't feel much difference from a 15.6" screen when I use this.

It is very powerful. I can run many programs at once when I'm doing my research. It was always a problem on my old computer, but this one handles everything nicely and doesn't even get warm. This was one of my other requirements. I needed the laptop that doesn't get hot, because for me it is really annoying.

The screen is glossy. Would have preferred matte, but it is OK if used indoors. In general, glossy screens are more precise, but matte screens are more versatile and look better (IMO). Anyway, the screen is very bright, the colors look great.

This laptop comes with Windows 7, it does NOT come with Office (I believe none of the new computers do), and it has some Sony software, like Soundforge and Vegas. Not sure if I will ever use them, but keeping for now. It also has an "app center" type of thing on top of the screen - you know, the same kind that Mac's have on the bottom. So far I haven't used it, but it looks interesting.

The speakers are average, but pretty loud. You may want to invest in good speakers if that's really important for you. For me, they are fine.

I have not played games on this one. I am not a gamer, so I would not be able to tell you anything about that, but based on the overall performance, I think it would handle most games. Don't quote me on that, though.

It does have the optical drive, which was also very important for me.

The Sony E Series laptops are great value based on the hardware specs that come with them. My purchase from Amazon is no different. Iv'e had this laptop 5 days now and it works pretty well, and yes iv'e put it through its paces as it helps greatly with my job which requires memory, space, processing intensive applications such as the Adobe CS6 suite, AutoCad, and ARCGis. Not to mention my leisurely watching of movies and listening to music. Only drawback for me is that I find the trackpad a bit cumbersome to use compared to my last laptop (gateway nv53). I recommend this product to anyone who requires mobile productivity that is also suitable for entertaining. Delivery was on schedule as well and packaging was ok.

I spent a good deal of time researching laptops with the following requirements.

Mobile 14 inch or ultrabook
At least 6 Gigs of RAM for multi-tasking
Backlit keyboard
SSD/HD hybird for quick start ups
At least 4 hours of batter life
Good speakers/video capability
I preferred an optical drive for handling a large collection of old CDs.
Windows 7
Under $700.

Pros: Mobility requitement are solid. A little heavier than I thought. The battery life for me has been around 4-5 hours.The size is a good compromise with an optical drive.
Backlit keyboard is excellent and provides a great typing experience.
Performance is solid, with 8 Gigs of RAM. It handles numerous business applications simultaneously. I don't game so I don't know....
Trackpad: I think it works great. I have read a number of reviews complaining. I not only find it effective...I think it is accurate and the advanced scrolling features are very helpful.
All of the peripherals work well. Bluetooth USD 3.0 drive, etc. Lots of bells and whistles for the dollars spent.
Rapid wake works well when the machine is sleeping.

Neutral: Webcam is adequate
Speakers are adequate. They are fairly loud, but the sound quality is meh.Not sure what the XLoud thing really does...Fit is solid. Case seems just a little flimsy. The back cover picks up fingerprints easily.
You give up a number pad with the 14 inch profile. This is occasionally an impediment with Excel, but not a huge deal for me. A 15.6 ultrabook with similar specs would be a better choice if your need that....There is a decent Toshiba ultrabook for the same price point with many of the same features with this feature. I needed an optical drive worse.

I researched a replacement for my son's old Sony Vaio and ended up coming back to this brand. The value for the money was unbeatable. He uses it mostly for school and his video games. He loves it.

I love this little laptop wanna be. The only problem I have with it is that when I am typing it will randomly move the curser to a different part of the text. This causes me to start typing in the middle of a previous word. Pretty annoying.

Aside from that, it is perfect and exactly what I was looking for.

While I run a primarily Mac operation, I do need the occasional Windows machine for testing and development. This Sony provides an adequate, although generic, platform. I appreciated the HDMI output, which allows me to use a spare TV as an extension monitor. The onboard graphics do support an extended desktop so you can get the working space you need. Of the 4 USB connections, only one is USB3--but I'll take it. The trackpad is awful. It requires too much pressure and isn't all that precise. I attached a mouse immediately. Keyboard is OK, although I can feel some chassis flex. It might not be harmful, but for extended work you're going to want a keyboard.

The overall look would have been cutting-edge ten years ago. Nowadays, it looks a little fussy. But I don't buy 'em for looks.

The laptop comes with some sort of Sony front-end to make it 'easier'. Besides the fact that the driver for the onboard disk didn't work (found a good one online), I find these front ends to interfere with the experienced user. Yes I'm a Mac-head, but I've been running Windows for decades. I was a joy to get rid of all the Sony junk and get down to basic Windows. It would be awfully nice if they added a button to blow that stuff away.

The reason I selected this unit was the package. I deal with a lot of audio and video, and the bundle would have cost the price of the computer if I bought it separately. Acid and Soundforge were the attractions. It doesn't hurt to have Vegas either.

Summation: It's a laptop. Meh. If you're a musician, it's a strong contender because of the software bundle. If you're not a musician, it's another laptop.
