Pros: As stated in the earlier post, this machine is very, very fast. Side by side comparisons to other computers in the office put them all to shame.
Cons: However, Sony Support isn't able to actually help with the issue of constant freezing. It is not from software I installed because it froze before I could even get to the desktop the first time I powered it on (and has frozen multiple times since).
Other Thoughts: The extended warranty I purchased from Newegg doesn't start for a year, so it is useless right now. And Newegg can't replace the model because it is out of stock (otherwise I would have happily accepted a replacement, since the computer is so fast). So instead, I am returning it for a refund.

Fast, Somewhat-Stylish, Problematic
Pros: This is essentially an Ultrabook but for one key difference: Ultrabooks are limited to Intel Ultra-Low Voltage (ULV) processors, which are 17w and even the i7 models are dual-core. This is a quad-core processor rated at 35w, and not only is the base clock speed higher, but unlike the ULV processors, this has Turbo Boost.
Cons: The laptop froze hard twice in the first ten minutes of using it. Then, it decided to install updates after I changed the settings to only install updates upon request. It crashed during the update install and refused to boot for more than five minutes, running a problem scan that returned no solutions. I turned it back on to have it crash again. I turned it on again and restarted it only to have it try to install the updates again! I did not get a chance to install any software, so whatever the issue is, it is preloaded. Sony Support will be hearing from me.
Other Thoughts: The keys are not back-lit, even though all manufacturer documentation claims it is, including the big sticker next to the track-pad. I call this false-advertising.

Pros: the laptop is really nice feel really light super fast boot time is about 10 sec the screen is good but it could be better the laptop is a powerhouse you can throght it any application and its gonna run it perfect.
Cons: the speakers dont sound that loud they could make it better but its not a big deal either.
Other Thoughts: if you have the money and really need a nice laptop with great battery life and power you should buy a sony z serie.
