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

Built-in stereo speakers feature Clear Phase technology for crisp audio you can hear throughout the room. Whether watching a movie or video chatting with a friend, xLOUD volume-boosting technology ensures big, booming sound without sacrificing an ounce of 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.

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.

Style Name: Windows 8 Consumer Verified Purchase
I did online research lot before buying this. You will find very few good 14" laptops in this price range and also very steep increase in price as one move from 15" to 14" with same configuration. Of course one can get better configuration with 15 inches in this price range. But I didn't liked bulky 15 inches laptops much with my previous experiences. I wanted something smaller. I got this delivered with perfect condition. It works marvelously and flawlessly. Bright screen. Flawlessly fast. I like the look of it. Just the one I wanted. It is so light and slick. Battery lasts longer. Had not much problems since I bought it 8 months before. The only small problem I faced till now is that time to time internet connectivity fails. But may be this is because of my router itself. But overall I am very much satisfied with the product.This is one of the best 14 inch laptops in market in this price range!

I've owned this type of laptop for almost two months now and so far so good. The only thing I hate about this laptop is that it comes with window 8. I have three window 7 and two window 8. Window 8 is not as good as window 7. Another problem is that the wireless disconnected more often than my other window 7. I'm still waiting for Microsoft to update window 8 to see if it works better or not. Will not buy computer with window 8 any more, but will wait for window 9. Any way, I still in love with windows...

Thanks,
Kneng

Style Name: Windows 8 Consumer
I bought this product from Frys and I was told just how great it was by a Sony associate. Now the thing that sold me was the i5 processor and this computer was on sale for the same price as computers w/ only a pentium or i3. This computer sucks, I've had it for a month and immedietly i noticed a loose 4 key. Luckily sony can come to my home and fix it but its still iritating. The case is awful, it gathers fingerprints more than any other computer i have ever seen. It gets dirty really easy and the track pad is a flimsy piece of crap. The "HD" webcam is no better than a damn 1.3 mp camera in a cheap cell phone. My 12 dollar phones camera looks better than this crap. I would not recommend this product to anyone just save your money and go with HP. ALSO WINDOWS 8 SUCKS
