So far, it has met my expectations.
There are several things about it that are absolutely wonderful to behold. The first thing you notice is the screen. It's got an IPS panel and runs at a 1920x1080 resolution. Packed in an 11" form factor, the ultra-high pixel density makes images crisp and edges smooth. The IPS panel produces color that *pops*. It's the first laptop that I've owned where the colors on the screen didn't look washed out and where I didn't have to turn the gamma settings all the way down.
The device itself is build to last. The screen is made using Gorilla Glass, which is smooth and durable. You can't scratch it. The rest of the device uses either a hard plastic and metal, with a black brushed look. It feels solid, dense, and while it's a bit heavier than other tablets, it's not wholly uncomfortable to carry.
The performance is stunning. It's priced and spec'd about on-par with the MacBook Air, but with a better screen and touch capabilities. It boots Windows 8 in only a few seconds, and runs very cool and quietly. There is a fan, but it's not too loud when spinning fast, and you can disable it using a software utility, if you desire. The machine itself runs cool enough that you don't find yourself feeling like you have to reorient it or put it down due to the heat. For fun, I tried installing Guild Wars 2 on it.Read more ›
This device weight is less than 3 lbs, much lighter than your average laptop. The design feels sturdy, even when you prop the device up to utilize the keyboard. Some other reviewers have stated that the slide out design "rattles" and "feels rickety". I have a much different opinion on it, the slide mechanic feels very sturdy and durable to me. I have had zero issues sliding the screen up and down. When in the upright position with keyboard out, you can use the stylus and write on the screen without any movement. I've tested this on all parts of the screen, the digitizer also recognizes the pressure used when writing, I can press relatively hard to get the "more ink" on feature just fine when free handing in word with the ink tool.
The design of where the Ethernet jack is placed works great, there are two tabs on the bottom that pop out to support it with a slight tilt to raise the Ethernet pop out design from touching the desk. The keyboard feels natural after a day of use. The only thing that felt weird originally when I first set hand on the device was where the spacebar was placed, I wanted to initially press the mouse pointer buttons, but that never became an issue after a couple hours of time on the device.
This device runs on the full version of Windows 8, you can utilize any of your regular desktop applications on this device! This is a big deal; you've gone from having just a typical supersized phone that most people call a tablet, to an Ultrabook that runs a complete desktop version of Windows 8! The design behind Windows 8 really feels like it was meant to be for this type of device.Read more ›
Not having used windows 8 prior to this, I was very happy using a regular non-touchscreen laptop on windows 7, but was in need of a computer refresh. After a few hours of getting use to, I'm able to work faster and be more productive, all while doing it in style.
- the laptop is light just under 3 lbs.
- the touchscreen is very responsive and with windows 8 features + office 2013 I can now do things like copy and paste with my fingers, zoom the screen, and all these various short cuts that are intuitive and work flawlessly with this computer. I'm only making this point because sometimes Microsoft products don't work well with certain brands/models of computers, but Sony got it right. Everything just works.
-the screen is HD. It's just like my ipad retina display, but better. Somehow with the black glossy bezel and the screen glass pictures look amazing.
-boots up within seconds. no more waiting around for it to wake up from sleep mode (which could take minutes on my old Sony Z series)
- using regular earbuds and plugging my headset in, the sound is the best quality I've heard through earphones IN MY LIFE. It not only was deep rich sound, which is great when you want to listen to music while you work, but it was so good, I've had times where I had to take my headphones off b/c I thought it wasn't plugged in, and the voices were actually coming out of my speaker. Think theatre surround sound for the headphones. Don't take my word for it, just go try it out at the store and see for yourself.Read more ›
