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.

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.

The laptop is nice, don't get me wrong.

The first incident involved the computer deciding that it had no wireless adapter; that was resolved in an hour-long call to technical support.

This computer seemed like an acceptable compromise between function and price for my needs. My highest priority was to get a reliable machine with a large, high-resolution screen so that I would have plenty of space for editing documents side-by-side; the graphics capabilities aren't enough for any real games, and the machine is certainly a hefty piece of equipment, but I figured it would suffice for my intended use.

Unfortunately, I should have heeded my instincts the first time I needed to call Sony technical support, and returned it to Amazon while it was still in the return period; it's had three major issues requiring hours of frustration and losses of data in the first 5 weeks of not-particularly-demanding service, and I no longer have any faith in its reliability.

The first incident involved the computer deciding that it had no wireless adapter; that was resolved in an hour-long call to technical support.

The second involved an unprovoked blue-screen-of-death incident (on the novelty side, Windows 8 uses a more pastel shade of blue for that screen than the ones I remember from the past); the computer froze up and would not respond until it was rebooted, at which point it went into an endless loop of claiming that it was attempting to repair the hard drive, spending an eternity whirring and spinning a progress indicator, then rebooting itself and trying again. Eventually I told it to "refresh" the operating system, and after that hassle and delay, I got to re-install all the software I had put on it before. Good times.

The third time, it froze up and required a reboot, at which time it insisted that it was connected to the internet, but every attempt to actually use the internet resulted in a DNS lookup failure.

I received this laptop from my employer and for the average user it is probably more than sufficient but I am a programmer and I have special needs this if what I found and did with the machine:
1. I hate Windows 8 and can't live with it for software development purposes; so I wiped the hard drive and installed Windows 7 on it (No I did not pay Sony for a downgrade I looked at the included hardware and found a Sony Vaio slightly older than this one on their downloads section of the Sony website and used the older Windows 7 Drivers and it has worked flawless)
2. The touch pad has no buttons instead the whole touch pad moves down if you click on the left or right bottom corner. This is hard to get used to but I use a mouse so no problems.
3. It is slower than my two year old HP DV8 computer since it only has a 5300 rpm vs a 7600 rpm hard drive. It should have an SSD drive for performance but I think the machine is not capable of having two drives. Again not an issue for a normal user but for a power user this may be unsatisfactory.
4. As a good point, I installed Linux Mint on an external USB 3 drive and was pleased to note that everything worked on it including the build in USB camera and everything else without having to search for drivers. This is partially due to the Linux developers getting really sophisticated and quite frankly Linux is starting to get better than Windows and it is free.. However, this shows that the laptop uses relatively standard components unlike some other manufacturers that use proprietary components and you are stuck with their version of the operating system.

All in all not a bad machine and the keyboard is nice.

It is really absurd. Just in six months, four main parts including screen, HDD, Ram, and camera got broken. It's really disappointing;however, Sony has supported and replaced them for free, but in the last time they told me that I need to extend my guarantee because more than four parts have been replaced!!!!! Was is it my fault?

Sony has a problem with the WiFi connections....it frequently drops whenever the laptop goes to sleep...and other times randomly. Additionally there is a BIOS prob that causes the laptop to crash and then give error "Operating System Not Found". Would NOT recommend.

Bought for my son, whom is in college. I took a chance because of the Sony name and its multimedia products. It was the best value I could find, even to this date. Comparable laptops are in the thousand dollars and up range. He loves it.

Bought this to replace an older model Vaio & so glad I stuck with this model. I went back & forth with a smaller one but so glad I went with the bigger. The touch pad takes soem getting used as does the Windows 8 but just need to work with it.
