- Screen angle does not tilt - I mostly use it in tablet format or docked to an external monitor. It hasn't really been too much of a drawback for me.
- Wifi strength. This is well noted. I see some lags when watching Netflix, but otherwise it hasn't been an issue.
- Stylus easily slides out of its holder. Very annoying, and I think I'd better stock up on styli.
- Screen is unprotected when unit is not is use. A sleeve solves this problem, but I'd rather not have the problem to begin with.
- Not as many apps available as the Apple AppStore (I know, I know, Windows 8, not the unit's problem - anyone in the mood to create a feet and inches calculator???)
But the pros! Oh, the pros!
- Stylus is superb. I mark up a lot of drawings with this using both Note Anytime, OneNote and Word, and it never misses a beat.
- Processing power - has just as much grunt as my regular office laptop
- Weight (or lack thereof!) - I travel A LOT! Not having to lug around an iPad and a laptop has saved my back. Plus, I also schlep to and from graduate school, so this is a real boon.
- Screen size - perfect when more than one person needs to view a document or a drawing.
- Battery life - I've gone 8 hours on a single charge. That has equated to not having to lug a power adapter to job sites (where there usually isn't anywhere to plug into, anyway!)
- the "ooh, ahh!" factor - undeniably good looking, and the envy of everyone I work with (evil grin!)
- Windows 8 - I am/was a die-hard iPad fan. I haven't touched my iPad in over a week - this is REALLY saying something.
This unit really makes Windows 8 shine.Read more ›
I have seen many people complain about the WiFi issues and Bluetooth, I have yet to see any issues with this. I have upgraded my Ultrabook to Windows 8.1 Pro, but before I did, I went to Sony.Read more ›
-Absolutely Beautiful Screen
-Digitizer works beautifully (except in some situations which I'll go over later)
- Incredibly light
- Amazing battery life. I've gotten 14 hours on one charge...
- The plethora of ports is fantastic. Especially the full sized HDMI
- Design definitely gets some Ooos and Ahhs from people around me.
- Back Hinge is especially sturdy
- Touchscreen can be disabled without disabling the digitizer for easy drawing
- Windows 8 is much more manageable with a touch screen
- Camera on the back (while nearly useless) is pretty good quality
Cons: (These were unexpected things)
- Backlighting is very inconsistent. Not every key is lit correctly, some noticeably fade. This differs significantly from my desktop Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013
- Back piece isn't fully secure. Feels like a bit of a problem with the finish and one that shouldn't exist on a 1200 dollar item
- Viewing angles are really good, but the backlight does fade at angles.
- Pen takes batteries (though this is somewhat good due to the batteries giving it a nice weight)
- Trackpad gets in the way while typing.
Cons that I can't take away for: (I knew these buying it)
- Pen doesn't work with Photoshop
- Keyboard is mushy and not very good for typing
- Only one angle when up
- Plasticy feel
Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with this laptop. If you've got a computer to type papers on (my desktop) and love to draw, then this is the laptop for you. If not, well then I'd go with the Sony VAIO Pro, Macbook Air, or the upcoming Asus Zenbook UX301/2
