nice laptop for the price pick on laptops 3X it's price
Pros: Laptop is the best laptop I have owned it is fast, smooth, thin, and one of the best looking laptops in my opinion. The 8GB ram is awesome for multitasking and is smooth and lighting fast the screen 16:9 is really sharp and one of the best screen's in a laptop on sale now. This is my first laptop with a backlit keyboard and let me tell you then you use it you will never go back to the standard keyboard. Typeing is fast and accurate the keys are sturdy and over all it is well build. The battery lasts me person from any say from 5-8 hours.
Cons: I wish Sony would have put not a 5400rpm hard drive but a 7400rpm hard drive that's about it the average person will not even know that is its just a faster.
Other Thoughts: if you buy any Sony vaio you should make the fan speed on performance it will be a little louder but it will make your laptop last longer and it will not over heat. I have not experienced an over heating in normal mode but the performance will not hurt.

Great deal for Ivy Bridge Power
Pros: Ivy Bridge Core i5 with tons of RAM. The bundled multimedia software makes this a great deal. Sony Acid is the foundation of my home studio and this little laptop handles it no problem. Also comes with Sony Vegas video editing! The 1600x900 screen is gorgeous. The Intel HD 4000 graphics are powerful enough to run Star Wars TOR on low settings with no hiccups, which is pretty amazing for a laptop. Even the bundled headphones are really nice! The black & red color scheme adds a nice "Tron" look. The keyboard is smooth and comfy. Lots of ports, including 2 USB3.0 (one of which can charge your phone off the battery)
Cons: Heavier than an ultrabook, thanks to the mechanical hard drive & DVD burner. If gaming is your goal, Sony does make one with an AMD 7000-series graphics card that is actually a little cheaper. The body is mostly plastic, and feels a little thin--it doesn't have the sturdiness of the unibody aluminum ultrabooks (MacBook Air or ZenBook). No options on colors or settings (it's a bundle). At some viewing angles, the glowing keyboard lights get reflected in the screen (I wonder if I can turn them off?)
Other Thoughts: For setting up a home music or video studio, this is a fantastic deal. There's about $300 of good software--not bloatware!--in this thing, in addition to a nice set of headphones and the intriguing "Boomdizzle" software that I haven't even tried out yet! It may not have an SSD, but it has a very quick hibernate mode that picks up in about 5 seconds. This is a really nice computer and, when I bought it, the only affordable Ivy Bridge laptop on the market. Way to get out of the gate first, Sony!
