First, I read a lot of people complaining about the fan noise. Yes, many ultrabooks don't even have a cooling fan but it certainly doesn't ruin this laptop. Yes, it seems to always be on BUT its inaudible 90% of the time and it's not even that loud when it's running fast. It's certainly the quietest CPU fan I've ever had. Yes, I'd prefer it didn't have one but it shouldn't stop you from buying this laptop
Some other reviews complained about the keyboard. Personally, I like the keyboard a lot. The keys are shallow, but that's not a problem for me. The keys are quieter than many other keyboards and I don't really understand the complaints.
Lastly, the form factor is nice- but not as thin as other ultrabooks like the Asus Zenbook or Macbook Air. It's definitely a thin a light laptop in the same league as those, but thicker and noticeably heavier. The aluminum finish is very nice and doesn't pick up fingerprints.
What does bother me a bit is that I have been unsuccessful in installing pre-release versions of Windows 8 (consumer preview and RTM versions). I'm assuming that the Windows 8 Pro I'll be able to buy for $15 when it comes out will work without hassle, if it doesn't I'll be furious.
4GB of RAM is soldered to the motherboard, and there is an open DDR3 slot. For 20 bucks you can double your ram, which was fairly easy to install.
Overall, it's a very nice laptop for the money. Don't let complaints about fan noise or the keyboard dissuade you, but I would wait for Windows 8 if you have the patience.
UPDATE: Ok, so it turns out there is no docking ability. I'd have to get a bluetooth mouse, keyboard, speakers, etc. I guess there's no way around this piece of junk. I can't even use a flashdrive to transfer my files - instead I have to use a network drive or online cloud storage. Absolutely ridiculous.
Performance is as advertised... blazing fast boot & "unsleep"... you won't beleive it if you haven't seen it before;)
At 3.5 lbs, the weight is awesome! Allowed me to take as carry-on on some short flights with small carriers that have weight restrictions on carry-ons due to smaller planes. My old laptop would have put me well over that weight limit.
I find the glossy display quite pleasing... in fact, my hi-res photgraphs look better on this than on all 4 other non-IPS monitors I currently use.
The keyboard is a bit different that what you may be used to but after a few days of use you won't even notice it any more.
Battery life is AMAZING on this thing! Rated at 8 hours but frankly, I was able to get more than that out of it! On a flight across the Atlantic, I had this thing on for 7 hours straight and was still showing abuot 33% battery left. Granted, I had the Wi-Fi turned off and put it in powersave mode, but at that rate, I could have worked for 10 hours without power!
Another big plus on this UB is the 500GB HDD. Yes I know, some UB purests would say that the inclusion of a non-SSD exlcudes this from being a true UB but i have to disagree. The great UB performance is all here, as is the light weight, so if it acts and feels like an UB, it must be an UB;) If I unerstand correctly, Sony has a special 32-GB partition of this 500GB HDD that acts as a small SSD. The system boots and runs essentially tasks off this pseudo-SSD so that's how they deliever this great performance!
For me, having that extra storage space was critical. I mainly use this for my photography business and when in the field on a long trip, my process is to back up my CF cards directly to my laptop's HDD, then make an additional copy to an external HDD. On my recent trip to Europe, I shot over 150GB worth of photos, so this would not have been possible on any of the UB's with only ~128GB SSDs.
I investing in a USB 3.0 card reader and leveraged this UB's 1 USB 3.0 port to pull some amazingly fast data transfer times! My first experience with USB 3.0 so i have nothing to compare to but this thing was blazing so fast I couldnt beleive it!
Only real down-sides I can see with this UB are as follows but both can be easily remedied:
- no Optical Drive: definately a weight saving issue here... but i needed to load office, Photoshop and Lightroom. Easy solution was to buy a good $20 USB external DVD drive. Loaded everything up with ease, don't have to carry it with me when I travel, but can use it any time in the future.
- limited USB ports: just 1 3.0 and 1 2.0 is proabbly 1 port less than average for UBs. Since I almost always have my mouse dongle in the 2.0 port, that typially leaves only the 3.0 port available. Frankly, I have yet to need more than the 2 ports but of course if you do, you can get a dirt cheap USB port expander.
In my mind, neither of these 2 factors detract significantly from the positives with this UB. Would easily recommend this as the UB of choice to everyone i come across!
