At a Glance

Enjoy the thrill of an automatic burst of speed when you need it with Intel Turbo Boost Technology for a boost in your performance that you can truly see and feel.

You can connect this VAIO to a compatible HDTV via the HDMI port to display your creations to a larger audience via a single cable. And the integrated camera with face-tracking technology and microphone makes it easy to video chat with family, friends, and co-workers.

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 15.5-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.

Not Just for Video Chatting

A built-in 1.3-megapixel HD web camera offers superb video conferencing quality. Powered by an Exmor sensor, this HD web camera offers amazing low-light performance and includes face tracking technology that allows the camera to automatically adjust and keep you in focus as you move about.

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

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.

I just had to customize the touchpad a little bit, but that's about how you feel with it.

I preordered it and came before the time expected, so that's great!

Well, the design is exactly as the picture, maybe better when you see it in front of you.
Love the keyboard, looks amazing and works perfect. I just had to customize the touchpad a little bit, but that's about how you feel with it. Well, this touchpad is great! love the way you slide your finger in it, very comfortable.
Update: Looks amazing, just add that the only metal parts are the cover of the display and where the keyboard is installed. All the rest is made in great quality plastic.

Now, concerning the laptop: it's pretty fast as you notice 8gb of RAM and 3rd gen processor i7, I feel a huge difference comparing it with my 2008 PC core 2 duo 3.5ghz and 3 gb ram. So as a college student, it cover all my needs and it will work perfect for my statistic, data base works and keep documentation etc.

Sometimes I like to play, so that's why a own a PS3. This is not a gaming laptop but I tried to see how it run some of my old PC games. So it runs GTA San Andreas perfectly and NFS Undercover in regular grafics. FIFA 09 works in regular graphics as well. Well I'm able to connect with my ps3 and use my keyboard laptop to write in it or to play remotely, you can even connect to your BRAVIA if you have one (I don't).
So all in all, the Intel HD 4000 graphic card works fantastic for an integrated card. Also concerning movies and programs, it generates 3D graphics, the only problem is that I don't have 3D Devices.

Now concerning the devices, all 3 USB ports worked well (did not tried the USB 3.0 as I don't have device for that port), SD cards too and it worked just as I expected with my HDTV by HDMI cable. the DVD/RW also worked fine.

For the money - I expected to be a little more impressed with its performance.
Not as fast as I thought it would be -- gets warm after a while on my lap -- internet/wireless connection not great....unless sitting next to router. But the thing that drives me crazy the most is the mouse pad! UGH...reminds me too much of my Toshiba that just died. I would suggest getting a wireless mouse --

Good points: Backlit keyboard is great! Display is pretty.
Would not buy it again though...

This and other Sony product may invades your privacy. One of the reason I've decided to purchase this Sony product was that I have been satisfy with the many Sony products I have own. This laptop's selling point was that it came with Microsoft 2010 Office starter with limited features which was fine with me. I almost installed it until I read the privacy settings on the Internet. I found that Microsoft Office 2010 starters will send you advertising when you are using it and it is not avoidable. Sony should have written this in their product description since Office 2010 Starter was a feature selling point on its laptop computer. It doesn't seem honest to me that they did not disclosure the advertising part as unavoidable within its feature as part of their PC. Their customer will not find out until they have paid for the product.

So I decided NOT to install the 2010 Office Starter program but then tonight, another very annoying incident happened. I've only had the laptop for a couple of weeks now and have used it only for emailing and shopping with Amazon. Many of my software programs have not been install on this laptop yet. Tonight when I was looking at a few products online at Amazon, a pop up filled half of my screen on top of the Amazon page. It was not from Amazon but from Sony, it wrote something like, "Your computer product comes with Microsoft Office Starter, buy the full Office product at $ XXX.00 of dollars". (Remember, I did not install Microsoft Office Starter so it wasn't from Microsoft). At first I was annoyed, thinking the Advertisement pop up was from Amazon since I brought this Sony laptop from them. Then I spotted at the bottom of the Ad , a link to privacy setting so I clicked on it.

This is a great computer and I learnt to use the key board pretty fast and moreso, it is amazingly fast, coming from a mac background for the past twenty years. I decided to go PC after my mac book pro died.

Buy this unit it will give you a good experience. Get the anti virus also.

This is my 2nd Sony Vaio and so far living up to what I would have expected from a Sony product. Very fast online speed. Great battery life. Relatively light weight. Also happy with the built in web cam quality. Perhaps the only downside is the touch pad. It is a little difficult to surf with, but I think I just needed to get accustomed to it. Overall, very happy with this laptop.

He is not as fast as I expected, and I had some problems with technical assistance in Brazil, where I live. The guarantee is not offered outside the USA although exists in Brazil Sony and sell the same product. Pitiful.

International branded goods, must have international warranty ... Regrettable.

I purchased the Sony Vaio after a lengthy consideration of the product features and the competitors. The computer's speed and ease of use are generally very good. However, the touchpad mouse is not responsive at all! I use the touchpad on a daily basis for data analysis and although I enjoy the computer generally, I am ready to purchase a different model based on this feature alone.

I guess to sum it up. General use... very good computer. Gamer or professional use... not the right choice!
