5 out of 5 eggsPerfect little netbook

Pros: Preordered this Netbook anticipating Windows 8, and it is GREAT. Windows 8 is truly designed for laptops and tablets.

Bought this to carry around at school, mainly use it in the math lab and language labs. Very light and very low profile design. Keyboard is very well laid out, easy to read and use.

Also has one USB 3.0 slot which can double as a charging port while the laptop is off, so you can charge your phone without having to boot it up. (You must set the USB 3.0 slot to charging mode with the Vaio care center application)

Great battery life when the power mode is set to "Balanced" and "Power Saver".

Very bright, clear and colorful screen.

I was not satisfied with 4GB of RAM, so I upgraded it to 8gb. This netbook has 2 slots for RAM and can handle up to 8gb only, which is plenty. I also dropped in a 250gb ADATA SSD drive, which has sped it up nicely as well.

Upgrading the memory and harddrive is a breeze, Sony really did a good job with this netbook overall.

Powerful enough to play older games and watch high res movies. Half Life 2 runs very nicely on this laptop. Online videos have no problems with lag.

Cons: The "Features" section for this netbook is somewhat deceiving in regards to the keyboard. It says that and I quote: "When typing in dim light, an LED backlight creates a pleasant glow, framing the individual keys and illuminating the lettering to make it even easier to find the right keys ."

They should have said the LED from the screen creates a nice glow for the keyboard. I was under the impression that it was a backlit keyboard. Still, the screen does create a pleasant glow for the keys.

Other Thoughts: Sony's tech support is great, they will help you with whatever problem you may encounter, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Microsoft's tech support is very good too, I had an issue with Windows 8 and ended up stumping the tech support person because of such a bizarre problem I had. They helped me out immensely.

Always have been a fan of Sony's products, and will continue to be.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent little book

Pros: Looks better then in the pictures. Very sexy.
Keys spaced very well, easy to take notes.
Good screen, crisp and vivid.
Has enough power to get some work done on the road.
Can play older video games, plays oblivion decently.
Has drivers for windows 7.
Gets good battery life with OEM battery.
Has 2nd ram slot, not really needed with 4gb already.
Phone charging USB port comes in handy at school.
Good airflow, powerful fan.
I get compliments from cute chicks at school on my new book.

Cons: Windows 8, this is the reason it gets 4 eggs.
Difficult to get windows 8 off of the laptop.
Tons of bloatware, like 30 gigabytes worth.
No lighted keyboard
keyboard is loud when typing quickly,
3500maH battery, a 4400maH battery would have fit

Other Thoughts: I installed a 120gb Samsung 840 SSD.
I upgraded to windows 7.
I bought an after market back-up battery.

I was able to finally wipe the drive by switching to legacy boot and manually compiling a jump drive to load windows from the console on another computer. Jump drive had to be moved to another USB port when prompted for DVD/CD drive drivers and windows rebooted. Computer forgets that the jump drive is inside and gives a random unrelated error.

I was able to find all drivers for windows 7 on the sony website.
A longer lasting (4400maH) battery is available from 3rd party sources for half the price of OEM (3500maH).

After even wiping the original hard drive I am unable to get another computer to recognize the drive, sony will still read the back drive though. Locked to the computer some how?

All in all only buy if you like windows 8 and bloatware, or if you are not easily perturbed from a difficult O.S. install.

Windows 8 sucks.

2 out of 5 eggsTook forever to get

Pros: The Sony laptop is Excellent!

Cons: New egg took 9 day (actually 6 business days) to get. This was the week of hurricane Sandy however, it sat at the warehouse in "packaging" for 4 days before it shipped. Also this was a second day air package. I also had two other packages coming from the same state (one co. 2 miles away) and both of the other orders were received in Two day. I sent an email to Newegg and got a generic computer generated response two days later that wasn't even close to answering my question. Then i sent another email stating that i was going out of town and needed this package before i went and could they instead ship it next day air and never did receive an email. A dismal communication on their part and terrible shipping.
