This will be my second Vaio that I have purchased. The first Vaio I had died because I left it surrounded by a bed blanket over night and it decided to update during that period of time. Thus burning up the processor. This one is a great upgrade. Windows eight was annoying at first but after using the Vaio control center and checking the tutorial it made things so much easier.....Thanks SONY!!!! I was having trouble figuring out how to scroll but the control center showed me that with the new mouse pad you have to use two fingers in order for the mouse pad to recognize you want to scroll.

The computer itself runs windows 8 very smoothly because of the 2.00 Ghz i7. The screen is crystal clear and very bright. I love the illuminated key board it makes typing in the dark so much easier. Another thing that was a bonus for me was I backed up all my files on a hard drive...I plugged it up and the Vaio transferred all my music and pictures effortlessly. The Vaio app "Playmemories home" even organized my pictures in a yearly monthly format.......Say I took a pic in August 12, of 2011. If I click on that specific day on the monthly interface it shows me every pic I took for that day.

I also don't have to worry about the computer over heating anymore because the fan has been moved to the top of the Keyboard right under the screen thus keeping the heat of the laptop away from my skin or any blankets lol.....

I am having so much fun going threw all the different powerful vaio apps and seeing how useful the are.

Excellent buy in my opinion.

Needed a new laptop and purchased a Sony VAIO Fit 15.5 inch Core i7 15218CXB Touch laptop for work. I was concerned about the graphics processor being shared with the Mobo instead of having a separate GPU like nVidia as I do considerable photo / video / graphics work on the road (i.e. video, Powerpoint, photo editing, etc.) But was assured that the laptop would handle it all. Slow(er) hard drive concerned me (5400rpm instead of 7200rpm) but again was told with Windows 8 and loaded ram I would be ok.

I played with the laptop a bit while at home and for the most part it seemed to function ok. Wasn't really happy with the "tile-layout" so I opted for the traditional "desktop layout". I'm sure if all you've ever used is a touch-tablet or touchscreen smartphone, then you'll probably warm up to the touch-screen / tile layout better but in all honesty...it can be confusing and not-so-user-friendly.

On the road, I was at a big conference where I had to construct client powerpoints each day for next day presentation. This is where things got disappointing real fast. Upon ingesting client photos for manipulation... the Sony VAIO started hiccuping... after a certain number of pics ingested... I opened the photo-software and found it to be quite unresponsive compared to other PC's I've had. Granted these were older PC's (Like a Dell 4600 i5) but I was expecting this new Sony VAIO to be equally responsive if not "faster/better". It was not. The problems started after opening Powerpoint and attempting to build slides in a series. I was able to do it but it was again, not very responsive. It seemed to have to "think about" what to do or as if it were buffering the images even after I reduced their size for faster manipulation. THEN...CRASH!

Locked up... nothing.

I picked the Sony VAIO because it ranked in the top 5 of laptops of its kind, along with the Dell XPS, which is the one I thought I wanted, but couldn't afford. The VAIO actually ranked second (after the Mac). I don't remember who did the rating--I looked at lots of ratings, and decided this one was the one to go with. I was switching from a 10-year-old desktop, which finally died. I have a Dell Inspiron (2008, running Vista), and thought I wanted another Dell, because it would make an easier changeover, and it would have to be replaced eventually. A friend said the Dell XPS was much better hardware than the Inspiron, but I wasn't ready to spend $1400+ on a new laptop. So I was glad to get the VAIO for about $1000 (with no interest for 6 months on an Amazon store card).

The screen resolution is great, and it boots up very fast. It has enough USB ports (many laptops only have one or two, this has four, and I need all of them). In other ways, I've had to work around things. The keyboard initially gave me problems because of some key locations, and because, even though backlit, it was hard to read the letters (I'm not sure why). Now I have it hooked to my old keyboard (that's one USB port, the mouse is another, an external drive is a third, and a memory stick is the fourth). Windows 8 gave me trouble for awhile, but I finally figured out how to work around it (just click on the app that takes you to file explorer and forget about it). I can't say about battery life, since I usually plug it in to use it.

I've had it a month, and have had no problems, so I guess that's a good grade. I love having the touchscreen, even though I rarely use it.

When I purchased this laptop, I was looking for a computer that I could use for a while and didn't have to worry on fixing it constantly. Sony VAIO seemed like a safe pick according to most of the reviews I had read on the internet. It actually is a pretty good machine, and it does work properly when things are going well. However, it crashes way too much for such a new computer. It also takes quite a while to boot. But the worst part is the wifi connection - it is just terrible! It stops working every 30 minutes and it is extremely slow, even though the same connection will work perfectly in any other laptop.

I would not recommend this laptop for anyone - I'm very disappointed in it.
